Talk: "Curmudgeon"


Conference: RailsConf 2014
Location: Chicago, IL, USA
Dates: 4/22/2014 - 4/25/2014

Rails has opinions about how we should organize code, interact with a database, write tests, format URLs… just about everything. These conventions, the wisdom goes, free us up to focus on the specifics of our application. “Convention over configuration” becomes our mantra as development hurtles forward with startling speed.

At some point, we stop. We take stock of what we’ve built, and it’s a mess. How did we get here?

Turns out, the decisions that Rails made for us had consequences.
