My Three Thank Yous

On the heels of Gregg Pollack’s call to action last week to give out three thank yous, here are mine:

  1. Thank you Uncle Bob Martin.  Adopting your three rules of TDD changed my development style and helps me to deliver excellent quality code and design.
  2. Thank you DHH and the Rails core team for providing a framework that truly delivers on the promise of allowing you to focus on the business logic of an application as opposed to the more pedestrian work (Java EE, are you listening?)
  3. Thank you Matz for Ruby. ¬†You’ve taken an old (C/C++/Java) dog and learned him some (dynamic) new tricks.
