After nearly 4 months of "summer break" (yeah, right), we're back.
We actually managed to talk about a few really interesting things:
- Conferences we attended this year (Mark: RubyConf AU, Kai: Webstock) and conferences either or both of us plan to attend. The latter is a rather long: PyCon AU, cfObjective, D2Wc, Strangeloop, CFCamp, Lambda Jam Brisbane and YOW! Melbourne.
- Distributed Version Control - what's the future of Mercurial (looking at the vast success of Git) and what are the options to host Mercurial in-house after Kiln on premise doesn't seem to be actively sold anymore to new clients
- IntelliJ 12.1 is out - what's new and which plugins have we experienced to work well/not that well yet?
- Ruby/JRuby vs. Python/Jython - what's the story with some languages being very popular on the JVM and others not so much?
- Some CFML-related news: Railo 4.1 beta is out there (and looks great), CF 10 is available on Amazon AWS (finally) and Adobe CF 11 alpha is coming soon.
- Error tracking with Raygun.io and Mark's efforts in OpenGL and LWJGL.
Here are some more links:
If all goes according to plan we're back in two weeks. Have a great weekend!

We got the wonderful opportunity to talk to the illustrious Sean Corfield this week, which was a great delight and pleasure.
Continuing with our exploration of "What would happen if ColdFusion died tomorrow", we explore further into the Clojure programming language, as well functional programming, and Lisps as a whole.
We discuss with Sean the reasons behind why you would want to use a Functional programming language, over Object Oriented, the reasons why they have had increasing popularity over the last few years, as well as how you can integrate Clojure into your CFML applications.
We also go a little deeper into how you would structure a Functional programming application and the tools that you would use to develop with Clojure. Make sure to check the bottom of this post, we have ALOT of resources to link to.
If you have any questions regarding what we talked about on the podcast, please feel free to add a comment, and we'll make sure that Sean notices.
Also, if you are looking for a job, and want to work with Mr. Corfield himself, the company he works for World Singles is hiring! Two positions are available:
- Back end, data-centric
- Front end, design + CFML
We have so many, that it needed it's own section!
If you have any more you would like to add, please feel free to add a comment!
