Recently, Joyce Carpenter over at ComputerWorld posted an excerpt from Rails for Java Developers at the ComputerWorld site. We ended up with part of Chapter 2 on Ruby syntax as the excerpt.
What was even more fun was that she and I did a 32 minute interview in support of the post. She originally wanted to edit it down to 12 minutes of material, but after we were through, she just edited out all the "uhhhh"s and "weeellllll"s and dead space of me trying to remove my foot from my mouth and we ended up with a 25 minute podcast attached to the article. She did a great job of making me sound good -- check it out for the Relevance position on Ruby, Rails, Java and more, straight from one of the horses' mouth.
