EP 018 David Heinemeier Hansson

 

David Heinemeier Hansson is the co-founder (with Jason Fried) of Basecamp (formerly 37signals) , author of Remote and Rework (also with Jason Fried), and creator of the Ruby on Rails framework. He’s also a race car driver, having won the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, and an avid photographer.

 

Today, we talk about why it’s best to build products that you would (and do) use, the low-risk approach to building a company, why funding yourself helps to slow the clock, how that approach bleeds over to every aspect of the business (from marketing to management), and why much of his life is lived outside the office.
