For episode 20, we had the pleasure of welcoming the Man himself, John O'Nolan. If you need to be told who he is, you may stop reading now. John is the co-founder of the Ghost Foundation, and he's responsible for the direction and the design of the entire project. We talked to him about the origins of Ghost, the direction it's heading and the future of it.

Isaac Schlueter is best known for creating npm, the package manager everyone uses for node. We talked about the origins of node itself (it's older than I thought!), the history of npm, and some really good tools at the end!

This week we talked to Sebastian Gierlinger. He's a Ghost Foundation employee, and one of the two people who have merge rights to the Ghost repository. We talked about how he got to be a Ghost, his programming and startup career prior to that, taking on monster issues.
Our #pro moment this week: Gabor's audio track got corrupted, and he had to re-record his replies, thus he might sound a bit out of place. Apologies for that. - G

This week we had a lot of fun talking to Josh, co-founder and CEO of Travis CI. Ghost's code is being checked multiple times a day on Travis, as well as a large number of other open source and closed source projects. Josh gave us some insight into how Travis came to be, why Travis is called Travis, what's next for it, and a boatload of technical details!
