The Soul of Software

The good folks at Tropical Ruby have released the video of my keynote, The Soul of Software. In this talk I start with the premise that the Ruby wave may have peaked. I took that observation as a jumping-off point to examine where we come from as a community—particularly from a philosophical point of view—and where we might go from here.

This talk is a little different from anything I’ve done before. It marks the first time I’ve allowed myself to “fire on all cylinders”, because it’s the first time I felt like my subject matter warranted it.

By the way, if you get a chance to go to Tropical Ruby next year, you should totally take it!
