" The product that ops provides to developers Flynn is a Heroku-inspired system that simplifies deploying and maintaining applications. Instead of using complex configuration management systems, Flynn allows self-serve management of containerized deployments, making life easier for ops and developers. Flynn provides a set of “PaaS Lego” including an API that orchestrates the management of containerized services across a cluster. These services can be anything from a Rails app to PostgreSQL to an ETL job. A variety of deployment systems and applications can be built on top of the API. For easy out-of-the-box deployment, Flynn includes Heroku-style “git push” deployment and management tools that utilize buildpacks." #self-hosted #PaaS #buildpacks #kickstarters #open_source #pub

"Ys Net is raising funds for Shenmue 3 on Kickstarter! Yu Suzuki presents the long awaited third installment in the Shenmue series."

Favorite casual-ish single player game of all time. And one of the only ones I'd still be able to play. Final Fantasy games take too many hours and you have to do way too much battling for the story. Who has 40-60 hours when the story or exploring of areas or actual cool action stuff account for at most 20% of it all (8-12 hours vs 32-48 hours of the lame grinding of repetiive fighting).

Probably could play a game like Metal Gear Solid 2 again though. That was pretty awesome. The plot is no where near as interesting, immersive, or part of the game, but the game also only takes 10-15 hours. And like 75% of the actual gameplay is actually entertaining and challenging fun. #favorites #kickstarters #games #pub
