YouTrack’s new JavaScript Workflows make Slack integration a breeze

YouTrack’s new JavaScript Workflows make Slack integration a breeze

Posted on Jun 8, 2017 in Tech Blog

The DF Studio team recently migrated off our our old Trac system to JetBrains’ YouTrack. Overall, we have been loving almost everything about it. (We also IntelliJ IDEA, UpSource and Kotlin). One thing we found lacking was YouTrack’s ability to integrate nicely with Slack. It was technically doable using the Custom Workflows feature, but editing the workflows was a bit… cumbersome, requiring a special editor and DSL. (That’s Domain Specific Language, not Digital Subscriber Line!) Hello JavaScript Workflows Fortunately, JetBrains was already...

We’re hiring!

Posted on May 25, 2016 in Tech Blog

  (Actually, we’re always looking for the right person to join our team) But small teams are especially hard to populate. When trying to find our next team member, the most important decision isn’t if someone has the perfect skills for the job, has all the right credentials, graduated from the right school, or has the best history possible. It’s really about finding someone that we want to work with.

The Kotlin programming language has finally reached 1.0 (see http://blog.jetbrains.com). If you haven’t already heard of it, Kotlin is a “Statically typed programming language for the JVM, Android and the browser” that’s “100% interoperable with Java” The DF Studio dev team was an early adopter of Kotlin, starting in May of 2013… Continue reading on DF Studio Software Development » Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share...

Backing up multiple directories to S3 with Duplicity

Posted on Feb 11, 2016 in Tech Blog

We recently setup a new dev server and configured it backup to S3 using Duplicity using kappataumu’s helpful article Cloud backups with Duplicity and Amazon S3. In our case we wanted to backup a handful of specific directories on a regular basis (the rest of the server is backed up via a weekly snapshot). However, the script shown in the article was for only one directory.

How We Used Chef Solo to Automate Building Our Server AMI

How We Used Chef Solo to Automate Building Our Server AMI

Posted on Feb 11, 2016 in Tech Blog

DF Studio began using Amazon Web Services in 2011. At that time, 64-bit wasn’t well-supported. 64-bit AMI’s couldn’t be used with m1.small and c1.medium instances. We chose to use Ubuntu (Oneric, 32 bit). In the spring of the following year, 2012, Amazon announced “64-bit Ubiquity” supporting 64-bit operating systems on all instance types. The writing was on the wall for our 32-bit image but we had already invested a lot of work into getting it setup the way we wanted. We chose to ignore it for a while since...
