This week, I speak with author David Heinemeier Hansson, a man with a seemingly unending list of achievements. He’s the creator of the famed Ruby on Rails programming development framework, multiple best-selling author, business owner, and Le Mans-winning racing driver.

David shares his story of his early days building businesses in high-school before finding co-founder of Basecamp Jason Friend and together creating a highly successful tech firm with no outside funding and ignoring all of the received wisdom on succeeding with start-ups.

We discuss:

  • The real definition of work ethic
  • Building Ruby on Rails
  • Our AI future
  • The power of working within constraints
  • How not to bring your whole self to work
