A video every Ruby developer should watch. ( and all other devs, but they would be sad.)

By: Johnathon Wright on: May 11, 2009

Every developer should watch "What killed SmallTalk could it kill Ruby, too.":http://railsconf.blip.tv/file/2089545/ from RailsConf. This is a whirlwind tour through the history of software development from Small Talk to C++ to Ruby. It is both ammusing and informative.

He also talks about two of my favorite subjects, "Test Driven Development":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test-drivendevelopment and  "Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD)":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fear,uncertaintyanddoubt .

Good times.


Just checking that you are human. What would be the result of this code?

a = 3*(4/2); b = 1; a+b
