Ever had your bundle blow up with a C extension failing to compile? Or you could not upgrade to the latest mainline Ruby version due to incompatibility issues?
We can help identify:
any missing dependencies
issues with your build environment
issues with the gem’s configuration
compatibility issues with the current Ruby version
[BUG] Segmentation fault
Or does your Rails backends or console sessions sometimes kamikaze with segfaults?
We can help:
identify any integration issues with the Garbage Collector
debug threading issues
track down memory allocation problems and dangling pointers
identify any changes to the core extension API for the current Ruby version
ditto for runtime semantics and other changes
