Episode 20 - Various Adobe Stuff

April 4th, 2012 · Comments

While we start off talking about Kai's new Android phone, in this episode, we mainly talk through various topics relating to Adobe technologies, and the Adobe business.

Moving from what is going on with Apache Flex, to the state of Flash on Linux as well as discussing the pending Java 6 EOL and how that may impact the also pending ColdFusion 10 release the conversation quickly start turning to the overall direction of Adobe, and what factors really drive a public company.

At the end of the podcast we also have a teaser for what we'll be talking about in the coming weeks - But you'll have to listen to the show to find out what it is! :)

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 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 3 - We exhaust Geoff Bowers

March 26th, 2011 · Comments

After a delay of about one week or 10 days due to Mark moving and me traveling around in Australia to see clients and to attend a course, here's episode 3 of your friendly neighbourhood podcast from Down Under. This was an epic recording of about 90 minutes length - here you go and have some fun for the weekend.

This time we have a special guest: Geoff Bowers - the man behind Sydney's awesome webDU conference and benevolent dictator of the Farcry CMS community. We talk to Geoff about webDU 2011 which is actually coming up quite soon (April 14/15 2011 in Sydney - go register as long as there are tickets left). From there we jump into all sorts of topics - one is Agile and how we use (or don't use) it. We talk about the ghost of Spectra (again), how and why Spectra failed and that some of Spectra's good ideas became part of Farcry CMS.

Another big topic today is the next version of ColdFusion. Adobe made a few of their ideas for "CF Next" public at SOTR 2011 earlier this month and we went into discussing a few of those features that are to be expected. ColdFusion Builder 2 is out there in public beta as well - and it gets a mention!

Finally there are a bunch of community announcement re the New Zealand CFUG, the next meeting of the Wellington Flash Platform User Group, some changes in the Melbourne Adobe community as well as the next Brisbane Flash Platform Group meeting in April. As a reminder to all of you involved with the Adobe community in Australia and New Zealand: we're more than happy to mention your event - you just need to let us know about it!
