You can skip 96 of the slides in this 102-slide presentation on startup DNA, written by a rank and file LinkedIn engineer, but read slides 30-36 about how various programming languages effect your company’s speed to market.

You’re better served reading this deep-dive into user retention in Rails apps, or this tutorial on email-pitching journalists (not half bad, if we say so ourselves.)
