1. The Best Kind of Brilliant

    The Ruby community has lost a true luminary this week with the passing of Chris Seaton, staff researcher at Shopify and creator of the impressive and envelope-pushing TruffleRuby implementation.

  2. Activism for developers

    Whether considered luck or a curse we've surely inherited interesting times. I'm sure many of you, like me, often wonder what, if anything, you can do to help. In the past few years, I've volunteered some consulting time with a number of small nonprofit groups in my town which led me to gain some insight into how they produce change.

  5. Debrief: Lead Dev Austin 2018

    Last weekend I had the great privilege of attending LeadDev Austin. As far as I’m concerned, the folks at White October knocked it out of the park! For a one day conference where the longest talks were 30 minutes, the speakers packed in plenty of valuable information.

  6. Self.conference

    Self.conference is a thing I’ve been organizing for three years, and I love it. If you know me, you know that, because I talk about it way too much.
