@saronyitbarek and I are back for another week of developer news commentary 🗣

In this episode, you’ll hear about...

  • Cryptocurrency company CoinBase refusing to negotiate job offers
  • A blog post by the Babel core team titled, “Babel is used by millions, so why are we running out of money?” which created a bit of a Twitter storm.

Then, we spoke with Babel Core Maintainer, Nicolò Ribaudo, about paying for open source software and why the popular Javascript project is running out of money.

Finally, we spoke with Rails Core Contributor Richard Schneeman, about what it’s like to work on Rails in the aftermath of Basecamp co-founders Jason Fried and Rails creator David Heinemeier [High-Nemer] Hansson’s highly criticized blog post, which raised concerns about Rails' independence from its creator.

I hope you enjoy!
