Docker Rails

Until recently I used Chef to configure and maintain servers which worked well enough but this was time consuming to run, and to recreate servers locally using virtual machines wasn't ideal on larger projects. When it recently came time to setup a staging environment recently I decided this would be an ideal time to start using Docker in our setup.

Rails Development Solr Sunspot

I recently updated [Sunspot]( from 2.0.0 to 2.1.1 on an old project and was hit by an unexpected connection error. Locally I was using the bundled Solr server and everything was fine, however in staging and production Solr is running on separate servers and could not longer be connected to.
