From [[WindyCityRails 2012]]

Presenter: [[Steve Klabnik]]

Summary

The software world doesn't exist in a void; we can learn a lot by studying philosophy and related subjects. This talk was wide ranging, and was more about planting the seed of knowledge than anything.

Watching the video is encouraged, once available.

Memorable Quotes

  • "Logic'd!'
  • "We aspire to be evil as well"
  • "You will be a total newb again"
