This is the last of the episodes we recorded at RubyConf 2012. Thank you to the conference organizers for providing us with space to record, to all our guests for taking their time away from the conference to talk to us, and to all our fans who stopped by and said “hi”. It all means the world and keeps us going.
Ben Orenstein is joined by Sarah Mei, RailsBridge co-founder, a developer at Pivotal Labs, and Diaspora core team member. In this episode, recorded at RubyConf 2012, Ben and Sarah discuss how communication patterns of your team manifest themselves in the code it writes, and how understanding those patterns can help you improve your code. They discuss RailsBridge, teaching, how teaching is an incredible learning opportunity, and how RailsBridge has helped expand the community of women developers in San Francisco and beyond. Finally, they explore how she got into Ruby, and women in technology.
