As part of the lead-up to RubyRX I got the opportunity to sit down with Jared Richardson and chat about Ruby, what makes a well-rounded programmer, Spreedly, the importance of going to at least one or two conferences a year, and more:

The funny thing (in retrospect at least!) is that we did the interview twice, but the first time, unbeknownst to us, the tape ran out halfway through! I’m just glad it turned out natural the second time, probably because we talked about a somewhat different set of topics.

Thanks to Jared for doing the interview – it was a blast. Hope you enjoy it!
