I've had a lot of fun and success building things on top of Rails but I've decided to no longer reach for it when building new things. Here's why:
If you’re building a delivery team (Product + Engineering) there are two metrics that you should always be aware of to assess the health of your cycles. You also don’t need to track these metrics. Especially at an early-stage startup. You should be able to know these metrics intuitively.
Starting a new project can be equal parts fun and terrifying. Over the last year, I’ve been building Wellen and I wanted to talk about some of these key decisions that I’ve made with our tech stack and how they’ve played out so far.
My name is Nate. I’m an engineer currently working as a member of the founding team at Wellen -- a startup in the health-tech space. I’ve always been a bit squirrely about sharing stuff on the internet, but lately, I’ve been in the mood to start writing things down somewhere.
