Today, Mark and I recorded episode 29 of the 2DDU podcast. Yeah, I know – we haven’t done anything for the last nearly 4 months and I absolute acknowledge that. Anyway, we’re back. Today’s episode covers a whole list of stuff:
- Conferences we attended this year (Mark: RubyConf AU, Kai: Webstock)
- Conferences either of us or both of us plan to attend. Quite a long list:
- PyCon AU (Kai)
- cfObjective (Kai)
- D2Wc (Kai)
- Strangeloop (Mark & Kai)
- CFCamp (Kai)
- Lambda Jam Brisbane (Mark, maybe)
- YOW! Melbourne (Mark)
- 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. Atlassian’s really nice Stash is Git-only at this stage.
- 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:
- Error tracking with Raygun.io and Mark’s efforts in OpenGL and LWJGL.
Make sure you grab episode 29 – it’s available on the podcast website for streaming, download or via your preferred podcast delivery system (aka iTunes) 🙂
