RubyTapas Episode 1: Binary Literals

It’s been well over a year since I announced this project, but today I’m proud to finally be launching RubyTapas, my subscription screencast service!

RubyTapas is all about small plates of gourmet code: brief, focused screencasts on Ruby techniques, idioms, and standard libraries, as well as practical applications of OO design principles in Ruby.

New RubyTapas episodes will go out three days a week. I’ll be publishing the Monday episodes for free on this site, but you’ll need to subscribe to get the Wednesday and Friday episodes. In addition to receiving all three episodes a week, subscribing will get you:

  • Full transcripts of each episode.
  • Full source code for each episode.
  • Access to the complete archive of previous episodes.
  • Email notification as soon as a new episode is ready.

Now without further ado, here’s the inaugural episode, which covers Ruby’s handy syntax for binary literals!

(Too low-res? Click the full-screen button and wait a few moments, the resolution will increase automatically.)

Like what you see? This is just a taste of RubyTapas! Sign up today to get two videos a week, along with full source code and transcripts. Or click here to learn more.
