Anyway, Steve Klabnik also wrote some wonderful rambling nonsense about how great Dogecoin is. But the best remark, in my opinion, came in the form of a joking tweet from Phil Hagelberg. Take a second and THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS ACTUALLY MEANS:

Is there a site yet where you can make your own cryptocurrency by entering a name, a cap and an optional logo? — Phil Hagelberg (@ technomancy) December 22, 2013

Pretty sure the answer's no, but you could build …

For some time, AMS has been somewhat inactive as a project. Thankfully, Steve Klabnik has been recently working a great deal on issues and merging pull requests. From now on, I will also be actively contributing to the project. My intention is to resolve all pending issues and pull requests.

What's next?

It would be great if you could test your applications against this new branch and report any issues . I successfully ran the Discourse tests applying this patch . That patch …

Steve Klabnik had an interesting keynote on being an Irresponsible Programmer and he told few stories on his takeover of some of why's projects, his involvement in open-source and why he switched to Linux (thumbs up). He also demonstrated the idea of " Functional Reactive Programming" by live-coding an example using the shoes gem.

Ben Lovell gave a presentation on Achieving zomgscale with Celluloid and JRuby! and Javier Ramírez gave a presentation …

…who did not know Mr. Klabnik referred to him as " Mr. Klabnik," instead of by his first name, just like I'm doing here.

I thought that was really cool. Jeff Casimir, who works with Mr. Klabnik, posted that he thought it was the first time anyone had ever said that. Technically correct but essentially wrong. I referred to Mr. Klabnik as " Klabnik" in my book on Rails, Rails As She Is Spoke , and did the same for everyone else I quoted, or …

hypermedia APIs , if only to challenge your thinking. It helped me a lot to do just that. Check out Steve Klabnik's Designing Hypermedia APIs ; it's not perfect, but it makes a lot of these things easier to grasp.

In the end, I think designing, building, and supporting a hypermedia API is hard . You may be better off with an RPC-over-HTTP, or ID-based REST design. The good news is you can benefit from an incremental application of the principles of hypermedia APIs…

…doesn't feel guilt as in a crime, but guilt as in time: What is best to spend your yours on? Steve Klabnik has a strategy for dealing with a limited amount of time: The basic idea is this: you try to minimize the things that are bad, and maximize those that are good.

My strategy has built on Steve's: minimize the guilt of open source, maximize the passion from open source. I've been thinking a lot about what creates passion, and what builds up guilt. It's also …

All about Struct

This guest post is by Steve Klabnik . Steve is a Rubyist, writer, and teaches Ruby and Rails classes with Jumpstart Lab. He maintains Draper, Hackety Hack, and Shoes, and

contributes to Rails from time to time.

O ne of my favorite classes in Ruby is Struct , but I feel like many Rubyists don't know when to take advantage of it. The standard library has a lot of junk in it, but Struct and OStruct are super awesome.
