RailsConf 2018 talks have been posted and here are the seven conference talks that I attended in person that I highly recommend. Thank you to the good folks at Confreaks for making these available for everyone!
David Heinemeier Hansson
This was the first talk of the conference and also my favorite because of the idea of conceptual compression and how it opens up the field of software development.
2. Livable Code
This talk uses architecture and hoarding as powerful metaphors for thinking about building software.
3. Reporting Live from the ramp of Death
Hear a success story about what it takes to start and run a successful software as a service company from the perspective of a developer.
4. Running a Business, Demystified
Todd Kaufman & Justin Searls
Todd and Justin share the knowledge they've gained starting and running a software consultancy.
5. Building a Collaborative text editor
TLDW: Writing a collaborative text editor is hard.
6. Rails Doesn't Scale
A lot of good life wisdom about what really matters in this talk.
7. What's in a price? How to price your products and services
I wish Michael Herold taught my statistics class in college.
