Ruby is Doomed (Railscamp, 2014)

"Ruby's Outer Limits", previously "Ruby is Doomed": a talk (with an overly dramatic title) about Ruby's frustrations and limitations we run into as we try to build and maintain larger apps.

Sorry about the yellow "speaker note" post-its; Keynote is terrible at exporting PDFs.

PS: I can't change the talk "title" here without breaking a bunch of links; Speakerdeck enforces the title determining the URL.
