Extractingrails Extractingrails Presentation Transcript

  • Extracting Rails from Basecamp David Heinemeier Hansson
  • In the beginning, there was the application
  • We embraced our constraints
  • Less people, more power Less money, more value Less resources, better use Less time, better time
  • We built half a product instead of a half-ass product
  • Less Software
  • Why Yet Another Web Framework?
  • Work with me here Stepping outside the sweet spots Cutting against the grain
  • Too much enterprise Too much focus on the 99.999’s Not enough on the 98’s Too much focus on the 100-man shops Not enough on the 1/4-man shops
  • Liberate the good ideas Change the language Change the context Retain the core insights
  • Call me shallow Aesthetics Joy Less
  • An Extraction
  • There’s no other way
  • I’ll know it when I see it You have to feel an API to make it fit Design matters more than test in TDD Guessing the future is for fortune tellers
  • Why open source?
  • For entirely selfish reasons Make others do the work Bask in the glow of being a giver What’s there to loose?
  • It works! 1,000 patches in 9 months Extract, pass, reap, rinse, repeat
  • Getting traction
  • Fear obscurity You need a network to reap the effects
  • Passion is infectious The baseline of excitement A conversation of success
  • Go looking for trouble Tout advantages over the known “If it bleeds, it leads”
  • Dealing with traction
  • Scaling a culture Early influx can bend you out of shape Release not so early, then often Set a viral example of kindness
