Walken on Rails

We’re pleased today to announce our upcoming Screencast series, and we’re excited to announce that Oscar-winning actor Christopher Walken has agreed to narrate our screencasts, which we’re calling “Walken on Rails.”

The series will be available for the low price of $9.99 per episode, and will be available soon. We’re currently finishing up the editing, and it is taking a bit longer than we anticipated. Below is a rough cut of the audio.

Episode 01: Ruby on Rails

Episode 02: JavaScript Frameworks

Episode 03: Using MongoDB

We’ll have lots more episodes coming soon. Keep checking back, as we add more.

Thanks again to Christopher Walken for helping us with these. Thanks also to our recording engineer Alex Wiltschko, creator of the amazing iOS real-time spectrum analyzer app Octave, for working with Mr. Walken during these sessions.

    Ben: I added an .mp3 fallback version. Sorry I didn’t do that initially.
