We were all quite saddened to have to cancel our in-person RailsConf 2020 in Portland due to the spread of COVID-19. Nothing can fully substitute for the conference experience. That said, we're delighted to announce that we've engaged several original RailsConf 2020 speakers to record video versions of their talks.
We started a small group to involve Avdi, Betsy, and others who’ve expressed grievances or interest in those grievances to work together. And the first project to come out of this group is what we’re calling A May of WTFs. It’s a new category on the Ruby on Rails discussion forum, and it’s going to be a safe space for those WTFs you weren’t going to turn into formal bug reports.
You aren’t operating at full capacity. We all get that right now: none of us are. And nobody expects you to. So please spend zero energy on performing like you’re doing work, or acting extra-responsive, or keeping up a front like things are normal and you’re doing fine. That performance costs you precious energy, while doing nothing to get us closer to our goals.
Who is responsible for doing stuff in good OO design? In quick summary: Keep your orders and your facts separate, tell as little about yourself as possible, and don't talk to others any more than is necessary.
