Interview: David Heinemeier Hansson talks Ruby on Rails 2.0

David Heinemeier Hansson, the creator of Ruby on Rails and partner at 37Signals, gave InfoQ the opportunity to speak with him about the latest release of Ruby on Rails, version 2.0 and what it means to get this release out-the-door.

David talked to us about the accomplishments the team made with the release and about the evolution of Rails in general.  This excerpt from the interview David describes the accomplishment of his team:

I'm incredibly proud of everyone involved has been able to put together. It sounds crazy to think that hundreds of people from all over the world should be able to work together on releasing a framework used by thousands more. But it really works. Large-scale open source projects like Ruby on Rails highlights the best of remote collaboration and programmers working together across time, country, and language barriers.

The interview can be read in its entirety at Talking Rails 2.0 with David Heinemeier Hansson.  Interested readers can read more about David at his blog, Loud Thinking.

Awesome. by Jose Sierra

Glad to see that the Rails community is moving forward and integrating itself into the existing 'enterprisey' infrastructure, rather than taking a marginalistic view and excluding itself in an effort to stay unique and untouched. Pretty exited to see the new features, too.

Favorite Point by Laran Evans

I love that he puts the issue of loc reduction (and therefore in some way productivity increase) in terms of percent. So the bigger the project the bigger the gain. All the more reason to use Rails. It's a good argument to the "But rails doesn't scale like enterprise Java apps", which I think is bogus anyway.

Great stuff.
