Rails Core Panel
Location: Ballroom A-B
Q&A with the core developers of Rails. Your questions; their answers.
David Heinemeier Hansson
David Heinemeier Hansson is a partner at 37signals, a privately-held Chicago-based company committed to building the best web-based tools possible with the least number of features necessary.
37signals’ products include Basecamp, Highrise, Backpack, Campfire, Ta-da List, and Writeboard. 37signals’ products do less than the competition—intentionally.
He is also the creator of Ruby on Rails.
Jeremy Kemper (bitsweat) is a programmer at 37signals hailing from Pasadena, California. Hot on the heels of DHH, he has been the most active contributor to Rails. He’s knee deep in pretty much all aspects of the framework and one of the top batters against new, incoming tickets.
Koziarski Software Limited
Michael “Koz” Koziarski is a software consultant specialising in Ruby on Rails, database architecture, web based businesses and object oriented design. He’s been a contributor to Rails since 2004, a Rails Core Team member since 2005 and helps other programmers improve their code on The Rails Way, a popular Rails architecture weblog.
Rick is a Ruby developer at @github. He’s also developed several APIs for @entp.
Yehuda Katz is a member of the SproutCore, Ruby on Rails and jQuery Core Teams; during the daytime, he works as a framework architect at Strobe. Yehuda is the co-author of the best-selling jQuery in Action, the upcoming Rails 3 in Action, and is a contributor to Ruby in Practice. He spends most of his time hacking on open source—his main projects, along with others, like Rubinius, Thor, Handlebars and Moneta—or traveling the world doing evangelism work. He blogs at http://yehudakatz.com and can be found on Twitter as @wycats.
Josh Peek (joshp) has been working with almost all parts of Rails. A lot of work spent on performance and thread safety for Action Pack. He’s the latest addition to the team.
