about processes and engines

your product

They are everywhere, their way was paved, they’re spoilt, they’ve all the documentation, videos and slideshows, it’s an invasion… They were given a box, a very convenient box…

The Rails developers…

Rails is grand, but don’t forget to think out of the box… How can you call yourself a developer when you’re just a baby bird stuck in its railway nest screaming : “hey, feed me with the documentation on how to integrate your project into Rails !”… If only you had the decency to initiate a reflection on how to achieve it instead of playing the “consubie”, taking open source and free software for granted.


Don’t call my project a “product”, did I ask for any of your money ? The price is playing the open source way : reporting bugs, providing patches, communicating in an open way via the mailing lists and not via private emails.
