As per usual, we are conducting speaker interview for the wonderful cf.Objective(ANZ) conference!

On the panel today we have Andrew Mercer who is presenting Work, ReST and Play, about REST based webservices, Justin McLean who is presenting Android Application Development with Java and Richard Turner-Jones who is presenting on Mobile Application development using PhoneGap.

We talk to each of them about their history as programmers, and get some of the details on each of their presentations as well.

We return after a long hiatus with another episode!

This episode continues to take us on our exploration of other programming languages.

We discuss the work that Mark has been doing with Ruby and JRuby, including integrating it with his ColdFusion project and SOLR as well. This segways into a discussion on Platform as a Service's like Heroku and their position in highly available and scalable applications.

Kai mentions some of the issues he was having around databases when he was mucking around with NodeJS, and asks our listeners to comment on any possible solutions they may know about.

We make note of the fact that Sean Corfield will in Australia soon, and will be presenting at events in Sydney and Melbourne. Looks like both will be packed houses!

Kai took his hand to compiling Railo 4 from scratch, and talks about the issues he faced trying to do that.

We also discuss several events that we are attending / attended:
