I had a great time at RubyNation - definitely one of the best tech conferences I've been to! I gave a talk called Coding for Uncertainty where I spoke about some of the tips and techniques I've been using to speed up my coding process (mostly by eliminating waste and making my code easier to maintain, not by cutting corners).
Important links from the talk:
- Rapid Development
- Service Oriented Design with Ruby on Rails
- Enterprise Rails
- Objects on Rails
- The Lean Startup
- James Golick's "Crazy, Heretical, and Awesome"
