The Ruby on Rails Podcast, a weekly conversation about Ruby on Rails,open source software, and the programming profession.
Hosted by Kyle Daigle.
Kyle teaches Sean some lessons about implementing and scaling webhook APIs.
Sean and Kyle talk about the economics of open source software.
Kyle returns from GitHub Universe and tells Sean all about the new GitHub Integrations Directory, a service that he's been working on this year that just shipped. Plus, a teeny sneak peak at the upcoming money-in-open-source-software conversation.
Mike Coutermarsh from Product Hunt joins Sean Devine as guest cohost to give a behind-the-scenes look at Product Hunt. Topics include Product Hunt's new features, its technical architecture and transition to an API-first development style, and their successful experience with Heroku.
Sean and Kyle debrief on the successful (phew!) API-First training seminar, and talk about the upcoming GitHub Universe conference.
Sean and Kyle talk about differences between enterprise applications and consumer applications, and treating the human UI as the exception state. They also answer a handful of questions from listener Colin Rubbert.
Sean and Kyle discuss how to be an effective remote team member, and how to build an effective remote team. Plus a bit of a twins update.
Two primary topics this week:
Overcoming legacy code. Kyle describes the lessons that he's learned being the primary maintainer of a legacy code base. (Lots of good advice here).
Building Rails Engines. Sean describes his experience building a Rails engine to interface with FancyHands.
Kyle and Sean discuss the unavoidable existence and importance of your personal brand as a programmer. Plus the usual follow up and dog barking.
Sean and Kyle talk mostly about programming-related employment and labor topics including recruiters, bootcamps, 10X developers, and technocrats. You'll either love it or hate it!
