Ruby5: A Twice-Weekly 5 Minute Ruby News Podcast

By Peter Cooper / September 5, 2009

ruby5-itunes-logo.pngRuby5 is a new twice weekly podcast dedicated to Ruby and Rails news. It's headed by Gregg Pollack (formerly of the RailsEnvy podcast which Jason Seifer has now taken over) and Nathan Bibler. They aim to cover several bits of Ruby and Rails news in five minutes. You can also leave comments about the stories on their site as you listen. As of today, there are 7 episodes in the archives if you want to catch up, all in the 5-6 minute range.

I'm not a big fan of listening to news, but Ruby5 has done a great job of also making it possible to learn about what they've featured without listening to the audio if you don't want to.

    Thanks for the mention Peter! As you said we definitely tried to make it appealing to those who don't listen to audio podcasts.

    Aside from the home page itself being reader friendly, the RSS feed aggregates all the summaries together onto one page if you'd rather have the digest.

    I like the idea of really short podcasts - great for catching up when you've got a few minutes.
