Award for beautiful coding: David Heinemeier Hansson

Derek Sivers - Award for beautiful coding: David Heinemeier Hansson:

"Go download, install, and run Instiki. (If you don't have Ruby 1.8.1 installed, it's worth updating to it just to run Instiki.)

After you're amazed (will take only 1 minute) go to Rails. Watch the 10-minute video. Close your mouth: it's open.

Then go set up a free account at Basecamp. Add some schedules & deadlines. Play around a bit.

Absolutely brilliant. All of it. Did the beautiful language of Ruby inspire his style, or was it just a match meant-to-be?"
