In this episode, I’m talking with David Heinemeier Hansson or also knows as, DHH. David is the creator of Ruby on Rails, co-founder of Basecamp & HEY, author, Le Mans class-winning racing driver, antitrust advocate, frequent podcast guest, and family man. 

He is a best selling author, having co-written the New York Times best seller, Rework, which has sold over half a million copies. Some of his other notable work includes the books Remote: Office Not Required and It Doesn’t have to be Crazy at Work.

This episode's all about how to stop celebrating the craziness and hustle culture that so many people enamor when it comes to building a startup and instead embracing the calm and building a more intentional long lasting business. His book, Rework, was one of the first books I read in business that I just recommend to everyone. There's tons of principles in that book, his other book, Remote, and a newer one, It Doesn't Have to be Crazy at Work, that you'll see a merge throughout this conversation. What he explains is that you can build a work life culture, a calm business as he describes it, today. 

Topics covered:

  • Finding your flow. Race car driving vs. programming. (4:26)
  • Launching HEY, disrupting email, and anti-trust advocacy in big-tech. (6:48)
  • Build our own thing mentality. (17:31)
  • How Ruby on Rails stacks up against low code/no code solutions for the next generation of startups. (24:00)
  • It doesn’t have to be crazy at work! (27:00)
  • Tips for building a culture of calm, “not just permitted but expected.” (36:50)
