About speaker

Justin Searls
Co-Founder at Test Double

I co-founded a remote agency called Test Double. Our developer consultants join the software teams of our clients to (a) provide extra hands to get things done and (b) help instill continuous improvement. Our developers are all highly-experienced technologists with a speciality in long-term sustainability of both code and humans, so we find ourselves helping teams get better at everything from testing to delivery process to paying down technical debt.

About the talk

RailsConf 2019 - The Selfish Programmer by Justin Searls


Using Ruby at work is great… but sometimes it feels like a job!

This year, I rediscovered the joy of writing Ruby apps for nobody but myself—and you can, too! Solo development is a great way to learn skills, find inspiration, and distill what matters most about software.

Building a real app on your own can be overwhelming, but this talk will make it easier. From development to monitoring, you'll build a toolset you can maintain yourself. You'll learn a few "bad" practices that will make your life easier. You may even find that selfish coding will make you a better team member at work!
