An extended member of the Obtiva family is doing some cool work worth noting. Michael Hall recently launched the Iron Languages podcast, which you can find here. It just wrapped its third episode featuring an interview with Ruby guru Brian Hogan on his work with RailsMentor and RailsRumble (Brian is author of “Web Design for Developers” and “HTML5 and CSS3,” and he’s also friends with Obtivians Ethan Gunderson and Noel Rappin).
Mike’s interview with Brian Hogan garnered nearly 1,000 listens within 48 hours - pretty solid work, especially for a relatively new podcast series.
Michael has also been meeting with local .NET developers and pairing up with them on Rails projects - not as an expert, but as someone who can help them overcome some of the initial difficulties in moving to a new platform. So far, he’s met with five developers and has plans for additional pair-ups.
It is effort and involvement like this that helps to keep the Rails community growing and rolling. Thanks, Iron Mike, for sharing your knowledge. We look forward to more good stuff from you!
