Hello Ruby was the first children’s book that raised $380,000 on Kickstarter and is published in over 24 languages today.

In our conversation, we talk about how Linda's early adventures on the Internet have shaped her creativity, how she built Rails Girls into a global movement that teaches women how to code, the process of funding a book through Kickstarter and her thoughts on dealing with criticism, maximizing freedom and living a fulfilled life.
