@consonance.dig(:past, :history) => An archaeological excavation of a ten year old Rails monolith // Thursday, 30th June 2022

Emma Barnes

You really had to be there. We didn’t record this, because it had “not for the Internet” stuff in it.

Consonance is a 10+ year old Rails monolith. Its CEO, Emma Barnes, finally gets some use out of her archaeology degree and digs into the code to see what artefacts lie within, and what we can learn from them.

Book publisher turned programmer. She runs, makers of Consonance, as well as indie publisher Snowbooks, and she maintains schools publishing app Make Our Book on Side Project Fridays. She works in a first floor office in a market town in the Oxfordshire countryside, which attracts a local cat that visits through the window.
