In January of 2013 I launched MetaCasts.tv with the idea that I would generate a new screencast each week on whatever technology excited me that week. I wanted MetaCasts to be a place where developers could come and learn about topics related to their current needs, as well as technologies they might not have thought to try, or have even heard about.
The second change that has happened in the last year has been my discovering and falling in love with Go. I think Go is just the bee’s knees. Because of this I’m finding it very hard to generate screencasts on topics such as Ruby or Ruby on Rails when all I want to do is talk about Go.
With these two thoughts in my mind, one being the need to focus MetaCasts, and the other being my desire to spend more time with Go I have decided to stop generating Ruby screencasts on MetaCasts.
This was not an easy decision to make. I know I’m going to lose some/a lot of subscribers because of this. I’m OK with that. Ruby is great, it’s a wonderful language, and I continue to use it every day, but I have to follow my heart, and by following my heart I’ll be able to make better and more interesting screencasts, and after all, that is what this is all about.
Thank you to all my current, past, and present subscribers, and I hope everyone will come along for the ride! It’s going to be a blast!
