JavaScript sprinkles in Basecamp turned Stimulus

with David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH)


All Episodes

David Heinemeier Hansson joined the show to share the story of how JavaScript sprinkles in Basecamp evolved into a full-fledged framework called Stimulus. We talked about ins and outs of Basecamp as it is today, Ruby, JavaScript and David's somewhat new found love for that language. How they open source because they can. And David's new YouTube series called "On Writing Software Well".
