Eileen Uchitelle talks with Dave Rael about working on performance and security, balance in life shared experiences, and facing fears

Eileen M. Uchitelle spends her days working on performance and security at Basecamp; or as you probably know it better, the place Ruby on Rails was born. She accidentally started contributing to open source after giving a talk on some problems with Active Record. Aaron Patterson was there and told her “fix it yourself” (not really). When she’s not making your life easier by improving Active Record, Eileen enjoys craft beer and hiking in the Hudson Valley with her husband and their dog.

Eileen's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Listen more
  2. Find balance in your life - make sure to enjoy some time for yourself
  3. Find something no one else wants to work on
