Real World Development Discussion

What I enjoy about this podcast is that Ryan and Sam talk about the pitfalls and successes of not just Ember, but web development in general. Nothing is perfect and as developers, we all encounter rough edges and it’s refreshing to hear their discussions and thoughts.
