David Heinemeier Hansson’s O’Reilly interview is quite an enjoyable read – with much inspiration even for a non-progammer like myself. When David is asked what he likes best about Rails, his response:
In general, all the things it doesn’t do. All the features we said no to. All the ornaments we turned down.
Yes! Thank you, David! This is quite similar to our own web design philosophy and was a delight to come across.
