Let me start with the DHH ping pong story, which is happening now as it has a good code example to focus on.

The history

The code ping pong with DHH has already started and my submission was chosen by DHH as the first one.

For those of you who are not familiar with the code ping pong action - there was an interesting discussion on HackerNews triggered by the "Rails - the Missing Parts" post.

At some point DHH wrote:

"If this is a poor example, …

… Domain Logic in Rails by Reed Law which mentions DHH's and Uncle Bob's differing approaches to building applications. A torrent of thoughts hit me then and I realized the truth lays somewhere in between. I started analyzing the subject deeper and this article is my attempt to explain what your application actually is and where it stands in relation to " Rails application" label.

Let's first find out what different types of code we put in the application. …

Very fast prototyping (remember DHH's "Build a blog in 15 minutes" video?)

What this boils down to is simple: Ruby optimizes for me . Other languages or systems might hold runtime performance, stability or formal correctness paramount but often at the expense of developer happiness. When I test drive a library or framework, I find myself evaluating it against those criteria. Can I get started with it quickly? Do I need to twiddle a lot of knobs or understand a large domain model …

Remote by Jason Fried and DHH

Goals for 2013

A look back at some areas of focus I set myself this time last year .

1. Shipping . Success. Shipped several projects at work and outside of work. It feels good to get stuff out there.

2. Contribute more to open source . Success. Open sourced my boilerplate ( Motherplate ), a simple html email template , and shared some snippets on CodePen .

3. Write less . Success. I tried to write …

…makes it hard to develop with Angular. But Angular is not the default choice, yet. DHH made some bold moves in the past, like making CoffeeScript on by default (thank you!). Can the same happen to Angular?

3. Rails will encourage JS frameworks but stays JS-framework-agnostic.

This is more or less what is happening already in the community. People use Rails together with many of the existing JS frameworks, with success.

4. All of the above

We can see DHH keep recommending …

Many months ago Jason Fried asked me to think about a cover idea for REMOTE , a new book that he and David Heinemeier Hansson were writing.

I thought REWORK , their previous book, had an iconic cover. The sole image of crumpled paper alluded to "back to the drawing board." It's a great cover.

I decided early on to keep the main color scheme for the REMOTE cover: red, black, and white. I liked how the titles "REMOTE" and "REWORK" read …
