  • Aggressively Probing Ruby Projects

    by Zach Holman

    It's funny how things change. Smart ideas end up ruining everything. Quick hacks end up becoming established practice. How we've written Ruby has changed over the last fifteen years. We have this vague notion of "code quality", but what does that actually *mean*? Let's grab a whole bunch of Ruby projects, pick them all apart, and see what they say about making successful, lasting projects.

  • Funding Open Source with Peace, Love and Happiness

    by Josh Kalderimis

    Ideas are cheap, but turning them into something more tangible takes a combination of time and money. The two popular choices for funding the growth and development of your idea are either investment or bootstrapping, but what about crowd funding?

    Crowd funding is more than just starting up a Kickstarter project, it is about making people and donators feel like they are a part of your story and project. Also, why use Kickstarter at all? Why not roll your own, or get businesses and friends and the community behind you?

    This talk will discuss how to approach crowdfunding in an open source world, from pledgie, to kickstarter, to roll your own, to what to give away, and including the all important drunk funding!

    And whats a presentation without a little love.travis-ci.org ;)
