Taking Tough Stands with David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH), Basecamp

Leadership On Purpose

We have another legend of an entrepreneur on the show today in David Heinemeier Hansson, otherwise known as DHH. Our theme is leading with conviction and taking tough stands. DHH is an incredibly successful tech entrepreneur (creator of Ruby On Rails and Co-Founder of Basecamp), and has an entirely unorthodox approach to business compared to his peers in the tech space ... and he's stuck out for doing it in sometimes controversial ways. Earmuff warning: there's some language in this episode. If not listening with earbuds, use caution. In this episode, you'll learn: –> Why the tech monoculture is wrong about building a business –> How to grow your influence by mastering a craft ("Competence breeds authority") –> Why trite axioms are the worst and why leaders should avoid them –> Why Basecamp places the exact salary figure in the job ad (and why they pay much more than average market rate) –> What to consider in navigating the political climate at work Leadership On Purpose is hosted by Blake Bozarth, Founder & CEO of CoThryve

Hotwire, Rails NEXT, and the DHH Stack™ with David Heinemeier Hansson

Remote Ruby

[00:00:34] DHH jumps right into telling us what the response has been to Hotwire and how Basecamp has felt about the response.[00:04:02] DHH talks about a book they published in 2013 and mentions to “wait for the pendulum to come your way,” and how this relates to Hotwire. He also talks about Turbo.[00:08:06] Since Hotwire, the whole package, is a separate gem you bring in, Jason asks DHH if long term, that will continue to be the case or if that will ship with Rails. [00:15:39] Rails 7 is brought up by DHH and how there is work to be done.  [00:19:39] Jason mentions to DHH there are a lot of questions about Strada and Mobile, Mobile, Mobile and asks him how the missing piece “air quotes” fits into the Hotwire package.[00:25:54] Chris is curious and asks DHH how he stumbled on using HTML more. Find out what DHH calls fascinating moments.[00:38:00] Jason wonders if DHH has any new ideas or anything he’s worked up from Basecamp that he might want to extract for Rails 7. [00:42:44] DHH tells us what it looks like for him when he’s starting a new project. [00:51:11] Andrew asks DHH what he would say to the Junior Developers out there who are learning Rails and being told by their Bootcamps, friends, or the community at large that Rails is slow, they’re never going to find a job, and they have to write React.  Panelists:Jason CharnesChris OliverAndrew MasonGuest:DHHSponsor:HoneybadgerLinks:David Heinemeier Hansson WebsiteDHH TwitterHotwire for RailsBasecampHeyTurboRemote: Office Not Required by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier HanssonIt Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier HanssonRework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson
