Episode 27 - Live from cf.Objective(ANZ) 2012!

November 2nd, 2012 · Comments

In this episode we are joined by the venerable Mark Drew where we talk about his favourite features in Railo 4, what his favourite IDE is and the interesting relationship between Adobe ColdFusion and Railo's CFML engine.

It's an interesting conversation all around, and live talks often are, including plenty of audience participation.

Kai also admits to his strange relationship with cats.

Update from Kai: Towards the end of the episode there's a bit of an uproar in regards to Cats that look like Pinups. Please note that the content might or might not offend you. You've been warned :)

Today we were joined by Kris Korsmo who is presenting at cf.Objective(ANZ) this year on Efficient Coding Using CFBuilder.

We talk with him about IDEs, including ColdFusion Builder as well as other options (and we find out that Kai hates VIM).

We’re Back with ColdFusion 10 Beta

February 29th, 2012 · Comments

The 2DDU podcast has returned in 2012, with an in depth discussion of all thew new bits and pieces that can be found in the public beta release of ColdFusion 10!

We go through all the new functionality we can find documented about ColdFusion 10, and discuss which pieces we like, don't like, love and hate, and what sort of use cases we can think of for each of them.

If you haven't had a chance to play with the public beta yet, this should be an interesting listen, and even if you have - Listen anyway! :)

As always, comments and questions are welcome!

Episode 17 - CFML Plugin for IntelliJ

December 20th, 2011 · Comments

This was an interview that we were really, really excited about.

We had the chance to interview Kirill Safonov, who is responsible (amongst other things) for the CFML plugin for the IntelliJ IDE.

If anyone follows Kai or Mark on twitter, you will probably know that they have both really started to enjoy developing ColdFusion with the IntelliJ IDE, so this was a great opportunity to pick the brain of the guy that helps direct where this project is going.

We had a great chat with Kirill about the history of the CFML plugin, as well as a roadmap for the future. It was very interesting to hear that the roadmap for the plugin is very much driven by the community, i.e. bugs in the bug tracker, and discussions on the mailing list.

Our favourite IntelliJ plugins also were discussed, although if any listeners want to chime in with their favourites, please feel free to do so in the comments!

Episode 16 - Live from cf.Objective(ANZ) + Flex

November 18th, 2011 · Comments

In this episode, we come to you with a live recording from the cf.Objective(ANZ) + Flex conference, joined by the always information Adobe Evangelist Terry Ryan.

Not only was this the first time that Kai and Mark were in the same country to record a podcast (not to mention the same room), it was their first time in front of a live audience (we swear it's not a laugh track).

We talk with Terry about the recent news regarding Flex being donated to the Apache foundation, and what that means for Flex and Flash as a whole.  We also pick his brains on the next version of ColdFusion codenamed Zeus, and see if we can get him to reveal anything extra about the release.

As expected, there is a lot of back and forth with the audience, and plenty of entertaining comments, including Mark stating that "nobody reads twitter", and Terry mentioning that "Linux users don't appreciate aesthetics" - all in good fun, of course :)

Unfortunately the sound quality is not the best, as we are not that experienced with live recording, however, we hope you enjoy the content and the crazy antics.

Episode 7 - ColdFusion Builder 2 and other goodness.

May 6th, 2011 · Comments

This week ColdFusion Builder 2 was released, along with Creative Suite 5.5 and Flash Builder 4.5. We have a chat about Builder 2 and the features we like in it, and also talk through some functionality we would like to see in the product as well.

We also have a talk about price discrepancies between the U.S.A and Australia and New Zealand, and why that may be.

Mark also received his Samsung Tab 10.1v, so a discussion about Android Tablets ensues.

We also do a quick shout out to the streaming radio station CodeBass, and the guys and gals who wrote the MediaSlurp player for listening to Adobe related audio and video content.

A few other topics pop up as well, but a pretty straight forward episode this week!

Episode 5 - Mark’s Addiction

April 23rd, 2011 · Comments

We're back again!

Starting off this conversation, we discuss Mark's (and probably soon Kai's) addiction to Spiral Knights, which is an incredibly simple and fun Diablo style freemium cross platform MMO (Friend Mark as 'Neurotic', if you play too).

Kai takes us through his experience at WebDU this year, and talks about how much he enjoyed the conference. We have a good discussion about his presentation on developing for mobile platforms, ranging from phones to tablets, and the pros and cons to different approaches.

The Amazon outage (which is still ongoing) becomes an interesting topic, and diverges into discussion about decentralised version control (i.e. what happens when your source control repo is stored on a server that goes down).

Flash Builder 4.5 for PHP comes up as well, and we have a good chat about the Flex ecosystem, and IDE's in general, along with the discussion of an interesting e-week article.

Finally, we announce a ColdFusion Job in Melbourne, and the CS5.5 Asia Pacific Roadshow.

Episode 4 - Linux, Mac, Windows and ColdFusion

April 8th, 2011 · Comments

Another long episode! We have a long and winding discussion about running and developing for ColdFusion on platforms other than Windows - generally speaking, Linux (Ubuntu, Mark) and Mac (Kai), which takes us well into how we set up our local development environments. Details like how we use virtual machines, what Eclipse plugins we use, version control clients and the like are talked about as well.

Late to the party, we have a talk about the ol' cfscript vs cftag debate, and how we feel about how people can format their code. Surprisingly no fireballs were thrown in this exchange, as usually this tends to provoke incredibly heated discussions!  As we all know, which line a { goes on, is very important stuff!

Lastly, we talk about the recent broo-ha-ha over whether or not open source developers should be taking donations (Spoiler: we tend to side on the "if you give stuff away for free, do what you like" camp).

And lastly, we put a call out for more people to comment on this site to our podcasts! We love the feedback and being able to interact with our audience, so please comment / send us any suggestions or questions that you have, we'd be happy to talk about them.
