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 31 - The 2DDU Technology Radar

July 17th, 2013 · Comments

G'day, it's been a while.

Today's episode features our first 2DDU Technology Radar. Oi? What?

The guys at Thoughtworks have recently gained a lot of well-deserved fame for doing their Technology Radar. It's essentially a structured list of "stuff" to use, look at, evaluate or be careful with when it comes to technology. It contains everything from processes via platforms and tools up to specific technologies and languages.

Here's our personal view on technologies: the 2DDU Technology Radar. It's a long episode, nearly 1 hour and 50 minutes. Feel free to agree or disagree with our views in the comments, discussion is very appreciated.

If you want to look at the list of technologies we're talking about while listening to the episode you're very welcome to use our published Google Doc to do so. Have fun!

Episode 29 - Back from the Summer

April 6th, 2013 · Comments

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!
