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.
