Update Early, Update Often

Keeping your codebase updated is great. Most of the RubyGem authors only interested in bugs from recent versions, newer gems normally come with security fixes, performance improvements. A rails major version upgrade is easier with codebase of newer gems.

This talk is about a good engineering practice, frequent update. Why frequent update and how to do it. How I ended up built a service called deppbot, and some interesting stories from building deppbot.
