With Chris and Andrew both having “blah” weeks they wanted to bring on a guest this week. Today, we are excited to have on Collin Jilbert, Software Engineer at IMPACT. Collin is here to talk about being a Junior Rails Engineer, his journey, Bootcamps, and doing Ruby Radar with Andrew. He shares some honest advice about being a successful new developer, which includes to keep digging, keep researching things, digging deeper to grow, educating yourself, and sharing what you’ve learned. Also, find out more about Ruby Radar from Andrew and Collin and what you need to do to be one of their next Junior Spotlights.
Andrew pulled a Tony Hawk, fell off his skateboard, and fractured his arm, so now he’s in a cast! But it’s all good because we are excited to have Andrea Fomera, Product Developer at Podia, as our guest. Today, she is here to talk Ruby with us and since she is the resident “Caddy Expert” at Podia, we decided to have her on to tell us all about Caddy and her Hotwire course. We also have a discussion on what NGINX and Passenger do, and there’s been some rumbling about “Rails Rumble” making a comeback which would be awesome!! Also, Chris makes an announcement about the launch of the Hotwire iOS template for Jumpstart Pro!
