Episode 33 - Stuff

January 16th, 2014 · Comments

This recording was actually supposed to happen before the Holidays. But on the morning, Mark was turned into a domestic goddess for the day by his lovely wife, so we had to postpone.


Episode 33 is about "stuff". Among other things we learn that Mark has no bloody idea of proper board gaming and that he thinks Articulate and Risk are good board games. They are not. 

(i) Note to myself (Kai): There'll be a board game episode soon.
(ii) Note to DianeAmyMark and myself: We need to catchup either in Melbourne or Wellington and play some games.

We talk a bit about Go and Core.Async and how to get started with Go and how to run Go on the Raspberry Pi. We also talk about TDD and BDD in CFML because Kai was playing with the new Testbox framework from the team behind Coldbox (Spoiler: It looks really, really good)

Finally we also chatted about our conference calendar for the year:

Kai:
  • Webstock 2014 (Wellington)
  • cf.Objective() (Minneapolis) (speaking)
  • Scotch on the Rocks (Edinburgh) (speaking)
  • Webinale or Int'l PHP conference (Berlin) (topics submitted)
  • Pycon AU (Brisbane)
  • CFCamp (Munich)
Mark:
  • Lambda Jam AU
  • Strange Loop (St. Louis)
