Episode 08- Developers, Developers, Developers

by Orlando Ferrer


MS Build vs. Google I/O vs. WWDC


Apple Bitcode - good or bad? Will it affect my code? (Hint: NO)


Presentation skills are important, so are the slides. It’s okay if you don’t have the skills, but you should acknowledge it, and work on them. We share some tips of how to keep presentations interesting.

 

Orlando did an interview with Adam Cheyer - cofounder of Siri and currently VP at Viv Labs - check it out here: http://orlandoferrer.com/2015/06/02/im-back/

Episode 007- You Only Compile Twice

by Orlando Ferrer


Omar is blogging at http://omsface.com/ using Ghost. Check it out. It's funny- kind of.

Orlando is still blogging at http://orlandoferrer.com

We talk about drawing software:

Manga Studio at http://my.smithmicro.com/manga-studio-comic-illustration-software.html

Pixelmator at http://www.pixelmator.com

Acorn at http://www.flyingmeat.com/acorn/

Are you a tech whore? Are you wanting to try every new language/framework/technology that comes out? Let’s talk about it.

Episode 06- Go Rust Yourself

by Orlando Ferrer


In this episode Omar discusses the promise of Rust, a programming language designed with safety in mind (in contrast to our discussion on Javascript on episode 4). 

None of us are Rust experts. We talk about it anyway. Learn more about Rust at http://www.rust-lang.org

Want to explore cross platform applications? Omar suggests NW.js: http://nwjs.io

Cross platform using Javascript+HTML+CSS is not new. Remember Konfabulator? http://arstechnica.com/features/2005/06/konfabulator/

Omar started using the Ghost blogging platform for his personal blog.

Orlando went with WordPress.

Episode 03- We are Live

by Orlando Ferrer


We record in the same room, for the first time!

Both of us share stories of mishaps we had when our smartphones died. Does your daily routine depend on it too?

We discuss how software quality is going downhill. Are development cycles going too fast?

Orlando attended the H3 conference (http://h3conference.com) and gives his opinion. Hopefully it’ll be back next year. 

We try to define what’s a “startup” company

We also discuss the Startup podcast (http://gimletmedia.com/show/startup/), and how companies outsource some of their work.

Episode 02- This Episode is a Hack

by Orlando Ferrer


When you have an idea for a program, do you do a lot of planning or just hack away? We discuss the pros and cons and how Omar is paying the price after a horrible hack.

 

Performance as a feature, what do you think? Here’s Jeff Atwood's (of Coding Horror/Stack Overflow fame) blog post: http://blog.codinghorror.com/performance-is-a-feature/

 

We start discussing possible names for this podcast and throw a few ideas back and forth.

 

Microsoft open sources .Net. Is this good news, or are they too late? Code is maintained here: https://github.com/Microsoft/dotnet

 

Filename extensions, are they a gift or a curse? Microsoft, Linux, and Mac OS X deal with them differently. Who’s right?

Episode 00- Hello World

by Orlando Ferrer


Meet Orlando and Omar.

How did we get into computers and programming?

We both became computer engineers!

We talk about our first “programming” experience using Maxis’ Kik and Play. Looks like it’s now freeware. It’s still a 16-bit Windows program with no support, but it bring back some memories. Watch the videos! http://knpforschools.webs.com/tutorial.htm

This was Orlando’s first programming book, in case you were wondering. It was a bit too much for a 13 year old: http://www.amazon.com/Example-Programming-Greg-M-Perry/dp/1565294386/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425498502&sr=8-1
