    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.”

  3. Excessive Enhancement: JavaScript’s Dark Side

    Are we being seduced by the animation and rich UI capabilities of modern browsers at the expense of the underlying platform of the Web?

    The Web has entered a new phase in its evolution: The proliferation of a JavaScript enabled audience with increased processing grunt in their devices, better and more ambitious JavaScript developers, and users with an appetite for sophisticated experiences, all seem to be helping to move the web in a rich and exciting direction.

    Good developers understand about graceful degradation, progressive enhancement, unobtrusive JavaScript and the like, so why are we seeing big companies building web offerings with little apparent thought for their impact on the Web?

    We’ll explore this by looking at what the Web was, is now, and might become. We’ll look at examples of exciting user interfaces and sophisticated interactions. We’ll also examine some emerging techniques for providing rich user interactions without hurting the web or killing kittens.

A focus on web architectures and real-time data delivery lead Phil to a variety of web development roles with particular attention to emerging front-end development techniques and JavaScript application development.

    After several years working on web applications and consulting on web best practices at technology companies such as Verisign, VMware and BT, Phil made the move into the agency world where he managed development teams and architected solutions on projects for clients including of eBay, Sony and BP.
