This week we talk with Microsoft’s Rachel Appel, a developer evangelist for web technologies. An area where Microsoft has arguably had some challenges attracting developers to their stack.
What is an evangelist? ASP Class vs WebForms vs ASP MVC Do Evangelists still get to code? Silk Project, a model application for learning how to do ASP MVC. Please make deployment better for ASP MVC Deploying with TFS vs Git Hosted TFS in the cloud Give Camp Startups and Microsoft technologies ASP MVC and REST APIs Issues with using OpenID Attracting web developers to the Microsoft Stack via cloud Get free Visual Studio Professional: Website Spark, BizSpark, DreamSpark Are software developers putting outselves out of work? Will software developers be replaced before house builders? Writing software is essentially like translating from english, and thus we’re getting very close to being able to talk with your computer and having it translate into C. With Google Translate/Voice Commands and Siri Why aren’t OSS devs just writing their own pay apps? Speaking of science fiction: Which augmentation are you going to get? Singularity Hilarious:Reverse Craigslist Troll How did you get into programming? (a: video games) Code Camp People: Y U NO START LATER IN DAY? Bacon Roses
This week we explore the world of graphics and web design with CityMaps own Megan Isaak. It’s late this week because we had some more audio issues during the recording and it took extra time to get it into its current state :-/
We talk about the differences between graphics designers and web designers
Career path for todays designers
Working with designers and developers, what’s the ideal process?
Where can I code? A Wiki map I setup in response to a NYC ruby mailing list asking this question.
On this week’s episode Ben and I talk with Jared Parsons, a lead developer at Microsoft working in Developer Tools division (Visual Studio). Author of the very popular (and free) VsVim extension for Visual Studio 2010 and #10 on Stack Overflow in total rep.
This is the first episode of a new series Tech and the City Extroverted Developer hosted by Jim Wallace and Ben Gundersen.
Being that this is the first podcast I’ve ever recorded and produced, there’s probably audio issues, additional ums and ahs that I didn’t edit out correctly and other issues with the quality in general. Hope to fix these as we gain more experience in this medium.
I’ve wanted to do a podcast since the term was coined, but I’ve never managed to find someone else who was willing to co-host with me or I was never able to narrow in on a topic that had enough content and I was very passionate about. But that has all changed.
