I had lunch with my friend Dan on Monday (and finally got to a RUM meeting…) and he mentioned that local guru Mike Nygard was on a recent Pragmatic Podcast. As you might expect, I pointed iTunes at the feed and was not disappointed. Mike wrote Release It, a very important book on making sure your code is production ready. Anyway, well worth a listen. Speaking of podcasts, my friends Neal Ford and Andy Glover‘s chat on JRuby et al is up on JavaWorld. Good stuff guys! BTW, Andy, if you’re looking for other people for podcasts, I *cough* know a guy.
