other stacks, and in most cases the "stack" is not a fixed machine but
a fluctuating ecosystem. (I'm not sure if that's the right metaphor
either, but it'll work until I get an idea for a better one.) You

…what nothing else in the world can do. We owe a lot to the exceptional genius of our Hashrocket team and the wizardry of the lead developer they provided to us. During my career I've led many projects and never seen a product reach this level of complexity without falling apart due to compromises and shortcuts made along the way. I attribute our success in no small part to the principles and practices that embodies. It is the motivation that I had for choosing Ruby on Rails…
…talk was great also. I've worked with Travis in the past when I was at Hashrocket and he was at nGen Works. Not only is he a super smart lad but a very talented designer. I had high expectations walking in and wasn't disappointed.
I won't touch on the talks that I didn't like as I don't want to be too negative. The one thing I will say is; don't listen to people telling you to be a ‘celebrity.' Forget trying to be popular. Just do the best job …
…13 years of working on the web I have only spent 8 months in employment at Hashrocket. However, when I was approached about the oppurtunity of working with Mark Boulton Design I had an initial gut reaction that it was something that I would love to do.

When I was living in São Paulo I saw Obie's tweet about Hashrocket opening a new office in Chile and looking for brilliant developers to work there. I thought, "I am not a brilliant Ruby developer yet, but I could become one if I work with brilliant people." I sent my resume, interviewed at Hashrocket, and here I am. You are not a native English speaker. Do you have advice for people …
…works with any superstar programmer whether they are coming from a shop like Hashrocket or not. Shop refuses to work with you? Hire one of their guys for a single-day side gig! In and using ? Throw a couple thousand at my friend Durran to pair with you for a day. You get the idea. Just make sure that the person you hire works full-time as a programmer every day. This scheme wouldn't work with someone like me; I have plenty of depth, but slow velocity since …

Hashrocket has actually taken this a step further and broadcast these live .
It's become commonplace for conferences to record their talks and make them available online for free. Additionally, a number of larger user groups do the same. There are a nearly endless number of videos on a wide variety of topics that are available online. Pick a video (maybe two if they're short), watch it as a group, and then discuss it afterwards.
