In this episode, the Ruby Rogues panel discuss Standard vs Reality. The panel discusses how realistic it is to expect standards.  Charles, Dave and David cover topics on the appearance of code, the family of origin, conforming when working with a team, community projects, company repos, challenging old standards, and much more concerning how workflows are performed today. This is a great episode for developers to learn to ask if there is a better or time efficient way to do things.
