The Other Meta: On Rails and What Matters to Me

Rails is an amazing tool. It enriches my life and I’m proud to use it
in my day to day work. But Rails is far more than a web framework.
Embodied within the expression “Ruby on Rails,” for me, is a culture
that transcends syntax, grammar and logic, going way beyond. This is a
talk about what being a Rails developer means to me, why I’m proud to
be one and why you should be too.

I loved this. Paul captured the creativity and sense of joy that first drew me to the Ruby and Rails communities.
