I love to grow and learn about topics outside of my daily comfort zone, so I’ve made MetaCasts.tv a venue for that. There are some episodes where I know the topic intimately, and there are others where I sat down, studied the topic, wrote lots of code, and presented my findings. All of it an educational experience as much for me, as my viewers.
Out of curiosity I thought I would take a quick look some numbers related to MetaCasts.tv and the topics that I’ve been covering there for just over the past year, and I thought I would share them with you. Personally, I found these numbers to be incredibly interesting. I was, for example very surprised to find out what language (programming, not spoken) was most prominently featured in the episodes.
As of this post I have produced over 22 hours of video! I couldn’t believe it. I’m super happy with that number. That means as a subscriber you could fly from Boston to Sydney and still have episodes left over to watch!
The average length of a MetaCasts episode is just over 17 minutes. That means over your morning cup of coffee or breakfast you can watch a whole episode and impress your friends at work with your depth of knowledge.

The most purchased video on MetaCasts.tv is not surprising considering most subscribers are also Ruby on Rails developers; Ember.js Pts 1 - 5 [UPDATED]. Ember is an incredibly hot topic these days, especially amongst Rails developers, and whole of people have turned to MetaCasts.tv to help them learn about it, and I’m honored to have helped them.
I really couldn’t be happier with how things are going with MetaCasts.tv. I’ve received amazing support from the community, subscribers, friends, and so many great people. So I guess as long as you’re willing to come along for the ride with me, I’ll be happy to keep generating new episodes for you.
