With Chris sick 😢 Jason chats with Luca Guidi. Luca is the creator of the Ruby web framework Hanami. They discuss Luca's journey into programming all the way to Hanami preparing for a 2.0 alpha release.
In the last episode of 2018, Chris and Jason are joined by Noah Gibbs. Noah explains the Just In Time (JIT) compiler recently released in Ruby 2.6. If you have any questions about the JIT (or even some Ruby internals), this is your episode.
Buckle up! In this episode, Jason gathers 30 trivia questions around the Ruby language and ecosystem and quizzes Chris. There is (hopefully) enough time between each question and answer for you to play along, too! The episode opens with the two catching up on what they've been doing this week. Fast forward around 20 minutes if you want to jump to trivia.
Chris and Jason fall down a rabbit hole of taxes and accounting before moving on the more relevant topics, such as Ruby 2.6rc1, Rails 5.2.2, Ruby support for AWS Lambda, and Chris' new Stimulus component package.
In this abbreviated 30-minute episode, Chris talks about his Stripe upgrading their API while he's creating his course and Jason shares his experiences deploying a server for a Ruby on Rails application using Hatchbox.io.
Back in the groove, Jason and Chris talk a lot more about Ruby than last week. This episode covers Jason's experience building a Rails app the Rails way (mostly), GoRails sweet new redesign, utility CSS frameworks (okay, just TailwindCSS), and Stimulus JS.
In the return of Remote Ruby from a 3-week hiatus, Jason is "guilty as charged, with the stories," as Chris and Jason catch up. If you're curious about the ending, spoiler alert: Jason's oldest child got stuck behind his bed.
In this episode, Chris and Jason invite their first guest. Richard Schneeman is a Rails committer actively involved in the Ruby and Ruby on Rails community. It is an honor he agreed to join us and hope you enjoy the conversation around committing to Rails, flossing one tooth, and looking for performance insights in your applications.
We're back, yet again, talkin' Ruby. This week we caught up after our weekend trip to work on Secret Project X™. Such topics include Pay (our Rails gem for payments in Rails), separating your front-end from the backend, Stimulus JS 1.1, Turbolinks iOS + Android, and Mastodon.
