RailsConf 2010: Interview With Caike Souza


We’re opening the box of RailsConf 2010 memories! Yep … we suck at journalism, so it turns out we have this almost one year old interview with Caike Souza we never shared before. So sorry Caike!

Rails Bugmash an Exciting First Experience


As many of you must know, last weekend a Railsbridge Bugmash was celebrated, and I had the honor to be part of it for the first time. For those who are not aware about what this is, it’s a virtual event that takes place on irc.freenode.net at #railsbridge channel.
