Running time: 43m 59s

David is the creator of the Ruby on Rails programming framework, co-founder of Basecamp (formerly 37 Signals), and author of 3 game-changing business books – Getting Real, Rework and Remote.

His recent Medium post on the damaging prevalent startup culture in Silicon Valley and elsewhere titled Reconsider has had an incredible response with more than a million views and 7000+ recommends. As massive fans of David's work and startup philosophy we're delighted that he'll be joining Laurence from The Happy Startup School to talk about the ideas behind the post, answer questions from our community and share his experiences building Basecamp into a multi-million dollar business by doing things differently.

Here's one of the great quotes from the post: "I wanted to work for myself. Walk to my own beat. Chart my own path. Call it like I saw it, and not worry about what dudes in suits thought of that." Join us for what promises to be an insightful half hour. Read the post.
