I like to do high fives, take photographs and make cool things with Ruby.


Heroku’s GitHub Integration

Heroku has finally released their own integration with Github. So it’s time for me to officially retire my current solution based on my HerokuDeployer project. An app that I build for the sole purpose of deploying this Jekyll blog with just a push to the Github repository. I’ve been using the new official Github integration as part of the closed beta for a while and it has worked flawlessly.

Just log in to your Heroku dashboard to enable automatic deploys to make Heroku build and deploy all pushes to the specified branch.

Read more about the new Github integration in Heroku’s Dev Center documentation.


Finally, the snow decided to show up. It came a couple of days late, it missed christmas. And of course, it’s all gone by now.

Deploy Jekyll to Heroku with a click on a button

I’ve updated my Jekyll + Heroku + Unicorn sample app to the latest version of Jekyll available (2.3.0). It now have all the latest features from Jekyll!

I also added a Heroku Button. So you can deploy your own version of the Jekyll site to a new app on your Heroku account with just a single click on a button. You can try it directly here on this blog by clicking the button below.


Pressing this button will deploy a Unicorn powered Jekyll site to Heroku. The blog will be blazingly fast and handle a heavy load by using Unicorn with multiple workers on per dyno. And by only using a Dyno the hosting will be completely free!

Hi my name is Mr. Brusman

Me and Eva got married for nearly two weeks ago. I took Eva’s surname and is now called Brusman instead Forsberg. So I thought that this was a good opportunity to tweak the typography on this site while I changed all occurrences of my previous last name.


Planning Poker with Ember.js and Firebase

Had some fun with Ember.js and Firebase today. Tried out the EmberFire lib provided by Firebase to use Firebase with Ember-Data. I also used the Ember CLI for the first time, can really recommend it. Wanted to see how easy it would be to build an real time syncing Ember.js app and then deploy it to the new and easy to use Firebase hosting service.

It resulted in a simple planning poker app to help with the sprint planning for my remote team. I’ve uploaded the source to Github.


Lived i Berlin for half a year but didn’t use my camera much at all.

Sunday walk

Took a sunday walk with Eva and David and it resulted in four new photos to my serie “from behind”.
