About speaker

I am an internationally known speaker, writer, and developer with over 25 years of experience in software engineering. I was recognized for my work on diversity in open source with a Ruby Hero award in 2016. I'm the creator of the Contributor Covenant, the most popular open source code of conduct in the world with over 40,000 adoptions. I'm a founding panelist on the Greater than Code podcast. I'm also co-authoring a book on practicing empathy in software development, and I write and record music in my home studio. Find me on Twitter at @CoralineAda or on the web at where.coraline.codes.

About the talk

RailsConf 2019 - Programming Empathy: Emotional State Machines by Coraline Ada Ehmke


Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of others. As developers, empathy for our users, our coworkers, and members of our community is an undervalued skill, since expressing emotions is often perceived as a weakness. But responding to the emotions of others is critical to working successfully on a team. This talk will frame emotions as neurological programs, with distinct triggers and multiple terminal states. The goal is to help us understand that when we act as fully realized human beings, and treat others the same way, the quality of our software will improve.
