This week on our panel, we have AJ O’Neal.AJ: Coming at you semi-live from ORM.CHUCK: Joe Eames.JOE: Hey everybody.CHUCK: Merrick Christensen.MERRICK: What’s up?CHUCK: I’m Charles Max Wood from Devchat.tv. And this week, we have a special guest. And that is Brian Hogan.BRIAN: Hello.CHUCK: Since you haven’t been on the show before, do you want to introduce your self really quickly?BRIAN: Sure, my name is Brian Hogan and I’m a web developer and I like to spend a lot of time hacking on code in Ruby and JavaScript. I also am an author. I’m a development editor with The Pragmatic Bookshelf. And I have a fabulous new gig where I get to teach brand new programmers how to get started programming now. So, that’s what I’m doing myself.CHUCK: So where’s that at?AJ: Cool.BRIAN: That’s at a little technical college in Eau Claire, Wisconsin called Chippewa Valley Technical College.CHUCK: Oh, cool. Yeah, speaking of your reviewing books for The Pragmatic Bookshelf, Ruby Rogues, we actually interviewed Bruce Williams and John Athayde about The Rails View this morning. They mentioned you, and I was like “Oh, we’re talking to him in a couple of hours.”BRIAN: Oh, those are some great guys and that’s a great book.CHUCK: Yup. So, the reason we brought you on the show is because, at least in my case, I know absolutely nothing about building accessible websites
