Five Questions?


Someone just asked me to participate in a five questions piece about the Rails community… interesting, but I wouldn’t consider myself a part of the Rails community. I’ve written about Rails, I use Rails, but I’m allergic to the idea that there have ever been “communities” tied to a specific technology of platform.

I think that Rails certainly has conferences, but I’d be wary of someone who considers themselves a part of the community other than the people who directly contribute to the codebase.

If there is a community, it has already far exceeded Dunbar’s Number.
