Unicorns & Web Servers

Fri Jan 27 2012

At ModCloth, our website uses the Ruby on Rails framework, and we use the unicorn web server. When deploying code via Capistrano, we have a funny line of code which turns off our old web-servers and starts up new ones. Every time we deploy, we must kill a Unicorn.

This inspired a bit of artwork.

Thanks Ali Spagnola and her Free Painting project!
