Rails in the long run: Maintaining an app through the years

Everybody likes to work on the shiniest, newest stuff. But sometimes you have to maintain the existing legacy code that pays the bills.

I have spent four years working on an app that exists as a standalone rails project since 2009. It has gone through major rails and ruby updates and innumerable gem updates, while being actively developed. Achieving a healthy balance is crucial to avoid collapse through technical debt.
