In this talk from FutureRuby, Jonathan Dahl talks about minimalism and clarity in writing and how to use these principles in programming.

FutureRuby isn't a Ruby conference, but a conference for Rubyists. This is a call to order - a congress of the curious characters that drew us to this community in the first place. We have a singular opportunity to express a long-term vision, a future where Ruby drives creativity and prosperity without being dampened by partisan politics.
I love this presentation
