The second episode of The devRant Podcast is here! We're happy to announce the release of episode #1 - featuring David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH) (known for creating Ruby on Rails, Basecamp, his book Rework, and much more). It was a thrill getting to interview David and we think everyone will really enjoy!
We also want to give a huge thanks to our two devRant users who helped us out and came on to talk about their rants - @peaam and @switchstep. We also greatly appreciate all of the questions that were submitted by community members. We really wanted to ask all of them since there were a lot of good ones, but unfortunately we ran out of time with DHH and we didn't get to ask any :/ We're going to make sure we better allocate time in the future.
You can get all the links to the podcast here: https://devrant.io/podcasts/... (available on iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Soundcloud, Stitcher, and we've provided the raw mp3 in various bitrates).
If you'd like to see it on any other platforms in the future, please let us know. And like always, feedback is appreciated since we're new to this and still learning our way when it comes to podcasting. If you enjoy the show, please rate it to help us out :)
At the end of our first podcast (https://devrant.io/podcasts/...) we gave a hint about the featured guest on our second episode. Now, it's time to announce this guest!
For the next episode of The devRant Podcast, we're fortunate enough to welcome David Heinemeier Hansson, also commonly known as DHH!! (http://david.heinemeierhansson.com/) David is the creator of Ruby on Rails and founder/CTO of Basecamp/37signals (project management tool), and a best-selling author know for titles like "Rework." He also drives race cars. We're extremely excited that we'll have the change to interview him as our second featured guest.
Like last time, it's time to take questions from the devRant community! If you have a question you'd like us to ask David, please add it as a comment on this rant or you can email me (email@example.com). Thanks everyone!6
An IT guy told me during a phone meeting set up to talk about how he builds these web forms on a dumb CRM for a client of ours that he has been an IT professional for 25 years.
He says he doesn't know much about the codey stuff.
What do IT professionals do again?8
So, in a school project we use BaseCamp for project management.
When discussing about using it I was about to say that I know the guy who built it - but then I remembered he was just in the devRant podcast and I actually don't know him at all!1
@dfox just listened to episode 1 of podcast. It was great, so good to listen to passionate people like DHH.
Suggestion for new guest: Samy Kamkar1
Definitely check out the new devRant podcast episode featuring Ruby on Rails creator DHH. Also two great ranters read and describe their popular posts. Total fun and informative episode! 😀
Has anybody been forced by a PM or someone else to send clients passwords via email?
How should I tell them it's not best practice even if they are insisting?4
I am so fucking sick of how those fuckers choose all sorts of shit gems to publish in the rails tree.
Like this fucking action_text and trix.
Why the FUCK would someone publish a fucking editor that breaks ALL HTML you add to a record? including <table> tags? data- attributes? href and src attributes that use some template tags eg liquid or any other fucking template system?
I just wanna catch you fuckers and line you up and fucking whip your ass all day long. I want to boil you slow in salt water and skull fuck you until you never touch a computer again.
Fucking basecamp and 37 signals. If you can't publish a decent gem at least keep your fucking shit for yourselves. You pride and tout yourself as top notch company yet you can't do a fucking HTML editor the right way - WP did it when you were itching your daddys' crotch you wimping dickheads.
I am so fucking done with Rails over this shit. I'll be fucked with a barge pole wrapped in barbed wire if any new features get written on this stack of shit from now on. I will fucking throw out the 12th floor window any of our moron devs who writes anything but productive maintenance code on Rails as of now.
Have you ever scoped a task to be a certain amount of time and at the end of that scoped time asked for more time because you think you can still achieve what you are trying to do but after the extra time has expired, you find out that the task is near impossible?
What do you tell the client?
Just finished listening to the podcast with DHH and can't helping feeling he is the real life equivalent of Russ Hannemann from Silicon Valley.
This guy fucks!1
Only just got around to listing to the devRant podcast #1 this morning. DHH is a little potty mouth 🙃
Excellent content none the less! I kind of agree on DHH's stance on project managers.
On a side note, what other podcasts do you guys listen to? I quite like most of the content from jupiter broadcasting. LAS and Coder Radio specifically.
