Building A Platform with Josh Owens

Building A Platform with Josh Owens

In 1987, Josh’s love story with technology began with his Atari 800XL and his dual 5.25 inch floppy drives. He has come a long way since those days filled with acne cream and 8-bit video games. Josh has been cultivating his Rails skills since 2004, and was a Rails Core Contributor. He led his development team to win the 2007 Rails Rumble competition for the development of TastyPlanner.

Josh is also a podcaster and producer of past shows like Web 2.0 Show and Now, he hosts a wildly successful Crater podcast, spreads the word of Meteor.js possibilities and builds an open source empire for it! He also just recently hosted first of it’s kind Meteor online conference, which I happily participated myself.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How he hustled up early interviews with Gary V
  • Streamlining his podcast publishing process
  • Why being in a desert alone is not a problem for Josh!
