November 9th, 2013 · Comments

This episode was about random stuff we're working on or playing with when not necessarily coding for money.

Some (more or less) interesting stuff we came up with:

Episode 15 - Rants, Rants and more rants. Also: MAX

October 25th, 2011 · Comments

I don't want to take too much of the excitement away from you guys listening to our little, friendly neighborhood podcast this time, but expect some ranting on various levels:

  • Kai had some interesting experiences with Adobe's customer support after Adobe's software activation (resp. a failure in it) made Kai having no activated Creative Suite licenses anymore, then
  • Mark and Kai agree on how ridiculous it is having to deal with DRM'ed ebooks in a lot of scenarios (besides Kindle, which actually works quite well) and then
  • Mark gets into a rant on Adobe showing the broadcast of the MAX 2011 keynote in a loop and not on demand.

We also talked the good things that happened at MAX and the implications Adobe's push into the HTML5/CSS/JS developer communities has on the large crowd of Flash/Flex developers.

Make sure you listen up to the end - there's a challenge in which we ask you to leave a comment if you haven't ever met us in person. There's a bet included - I need more than 15 people to leave a comment to win! Go for it, please! :)

Episode 2 - We talk about more stuff

March 1st, 2011 · Comments

Another instalment from the 2 developers from Downunder.

Kai and I talk about a variety of topics, including the books Driving Technical Change, and the ColdFusion Anthology, detour into talking about Adam Lehman's appointment to being the Flash Builder product manager, Kai attending Webstock 2011 and among other things playing the game Werewolf, swerve into discussing software certifications, SOLR, ColdFusion Memory Leaks and local events (and some other stuff I can't think of right now).

There should be something in there for everyone!
