I'm a podcaster and software developer who has produced more than 25 podcasts with more than 3,200 episodes about software development, freelancing, and devops.
In October 2008, I launched the Rails Coach podcast which after many iterations became Devchat.tv in 2011 with the launch of the Ruby Rogues podcast.
Devchat.tv has inspired thousands of software developers to learn more and level up in their development careers. Our shows have also helped countless people join the ranks of programmers and build fruitful and lucrative careers.
Our shows are consistently listed as go-to resources for software developers and are often ranked #1 in the search results for their respective technologies or areas of expertise.
