Welcome to RubyTapas 2.0

I’m going to write a longer post about this soon, but here’s the short and sweet version:

Say hello to to RubyTapas 2.0.

It’s been a long time in coming, but this is (hopefully) the RubyTapas experience you’ve asked for and deserved.

  • Yes, you can stream videos right from the site.
  • Yes, the scripts are right there with the videos, complete with beautifully highlighted code listings.
  • Yes, there are categories and tags and full-text search.
  • Yes, I will now be able to easily deliver stuff you’ve asked for, like “where to start” lists.
  • Yes, there is now a forums section where you can suggest topics.

There’s a lot to talk about here, and I’ll be posting more in the coming days. There’s a whole new pricing model. There are one or two features that haven’t made the jump. There’s also a lot of work yet to be done.

Most notably, in the coming days we’ll be working on a solution for porting “legacy” accounts to the new site. If you’re already a subscriber, keep an eye on your inbox. There’s some more information in this FAQ item.

In the meantime, feel free to poke around and kick the tires. Check out the freebies. Send feedback.

If you’re new here, and have no idea what I’m talking about, have a look at the About page.

I’m excited. This has been a looooong time in coming. I hope you like what you see.

As always: happy hacking!
