Team Codest were recently at the STHLM Tech Fest 2019 in Stockholm, where there were 5000 startup founders, investors, designers, developers and journalists in one place. Was it worth taking part in this event? Definitely. Here is a short summary of the conference seen through my eye.

5000 startup founders, investors, designers, developers and journalists in one place - how is that possible? STHLM TECH FEST 2019 is coming. On 7–11 September in Stockholm an amazing tech conference will take place, gathering industry leaders, pioneers and really great speakers.

Actively developed, Pull Requests merged in a timely fashion, no long-outstanding bugs and a healthy amount of GitHub stars. But are these even a workable metric? All this and more below.
It can easily feel these days like Ruby on Rails, especially in it’s latest installment, has everything and the kitchen sink (I honestly wouldn’t be too surprised to find ActiveSupport::KitchenSink in there). Can there be anything missing? This and much more below.
We Rubyists tend to sneer at the NPM crowd every time something bad happens to them (remember left-pad? Or event-stream?). No sneers to be heard this week, however, as we learned that strong_password was hijacked on RubyGems and was loading some very nasty code. Read about it and much more below.
