While the podcast primarily focuses on Ruby (and Ruby on Rails), it also touches on broader software development topics. Episodes range from a conversation between the hosts, interviewing different people in the programming community, or sometimes absurd adventures like Ruby Trivia.
Chris Oliver (founder of GoRails) and Jason Charnes (Senior Software Developer at Podia) are the hosts.
In this episode, Jason asks two different Ruby educators (Jesus Castello and Chris) about their experience teaching Ruby. Alongside the discussion on teaching, the three talk about changes coming in Rails 6 (Zeitwerk, ActionCable), debugging processes, and Jason's VS Code setup.
In this episode, Jason and Chris get a chance to talk with Chris Seaton. Chris works on TruffleRuby, a high-performance implementation of Ruby built on top of the GraalVM by Oracle Labs. Chris shares how TruffleRuby came to be, some of the benefits of using TruffleRuby, the status of the project, as well as an iOS Chris had a hand in building.
