    Ruby on Rails has influenced many frameworks over the years, and David shares with us a candid look at 10+ Years of Ruby on Rails.

    David shares stories about why he started Ruby on Rails, and explains why programmers should market their projects. He discussed his early work on Rails, some of the early early contributors to Rails, how the success of Basecamp helped Rails succeed (and vice versa), the io.js & Node.js complications, his thoughts on getting paid for working on open source, and so much more.

    9:42 – “If programming is going to be the thing I spend my time on, it damn well better be awesome. I need to have a good time.” – DHH 9:42

    DHH on Twitter: “More than 3800 people have contributed code to the core Rails framework”

    DHH on Twitter: “@codesoda @steveklabnik I’d rather you spend the $$ on having your people contribute to Rails on company time, if you want.”

    DHH on Twitter: “Rails is obligation-free software. See the MIT license. You can use it to make a trillion billion and not owe anyone royalties.”

    DHH on Twitter: “Flip side: Do not contribute patches to Rails under the false notion that users of the framework will then be indebted to reward you.”

    DHH on Twitter: “You don’t owe me anything to use Rails, and I don’t owe you anything for you using it.”

    DHH on Twitter: “@steveklabnik What’s your time horizon of sustainability? Rails has been rocking that model for 10+ years.”

    DHH on Twitter: “Congratulations to @shopify for deploying on Rails 4.1. Same app has been on Rails since 2005. 10 yrs later they’re an Ecommerce powerhouse.”

    DHH on Twitter: “Rails 5 will target Ruby 2.2+ exclusively, so we can rely on symbol GC and kwargs to cleanup a bunch of cruft. Ruby on Rails keeps moving!”

    DHH on Twitter: “After all these years, programming Ruby through TextMate to make Rails dance for the web remains one of my favorite activities in the world.”

    Ruby on Rails on Twitter: “2014 has seen 708 contributors get their patches accepted into Rails: http://t.co/18k1hh0vd7 — what a spectacular community effort!”

    DHH on Twitter: “@thomasfuchs @thijs Github is on 3.0 now. On the way to 4.x. 2.3 is five years old! Rails has lived as long again as it had at the time.”

    DHH on Twitter: “The original reality-compressed 15 minute Rails demo — including WUPS!”

    DHH on Twitter: “@gordo24 I think Rails has never been in a better position regarding code, community, and leadership. Broader and more engaged than ever.”

    DHH on Twitter: “Staggering collaborative effort on Rails. Almost 12,000 pull requests processed. Just 419 still open. Incredible. https://t.co/qVfiTkBNvQ ????”

    DHH on Twitter: “Hard to comprehend how far Ruby and Rails have come since 2004 where I attended a 40-person RubyConf with just a few doing paid Ruby.”

  2. Meet Pieter Levels, He is Launching 12 Startups in 12 Months

    When I set to work building my first digital product I had no idea about the term MVP (minimum viable product) and it took me 9 months to build and launch. Fast forward 3 years to my latest project VelocityPage and it took us 14 months from start to launch — mind you the 3 of us did all have businesses to run and clients to keep happy, but still…

    Building and launching projects based on the MVP model is all the rage these days. Still most people tend to talk MVP and  put off launching their projects until they are way beyond minimum viable.

    Tweet This Quote: I’m focusing on finishing my stuff. Not talking, not reading, but finishing and launching.

    Enter Pieter Levels or Levels as he goes by, 28-year old artist and entrepreneur from Amsterdam.  Levels has undertaken to build 12 startups in 12 months.  He is the first to admit that the projects he is launching are not officially startups per se, because it takes years and years to build a viable business. That being said,  he is going from idea to launch without hesitation and already has a fairly large success under his belt: NomadList.io.

    This is not Levels first venture. While attending university he founded a YouTube channel to promote his own music and has grown that channel to over 100 million views.  The revenue from this channel helped fund his way through school, but after he was finished he discovered the digital nomad lifestyle.

    This is a great conversation with a young, smart and abitious guy. Let’s get to it.

    What you will learn in this episode:

    What too many people are focused on and what they whould be doing instead.

    How you can easily launch a MVP startup every month too.

    You will never reach perfection. Ever.

    Discipline yourself to do something with this one trick.

    Why you need to take distance from your product and your ideas.

    Taking a more rational approach to your product and focus outward not inward.

    Level’s far out statement about the internet and ideas.
