Introducing the "Ignite Your Coding!" Podcast

I enjoy the better software podcasts out there, but there aren’t really enough good ones out there and some of them would really be better if they contained a little more element of conversation and even debate once in awhile instead of being just a straight forward presentation from the guest.  I’m really looking forward to see what those crazy Canucks get up to with the new Ignite Your Coding podcast starting up soon.  The guest list and schedule looks pretty good, but the most intriguing thing to me is the interactive nature of the webcast format where listeners can ask questions live.  The very first episode is going to be Andy Hunt of Pragmatic Programmer fame with Uncle Bob and several CodeBetter members in between.

You can find more information from Joey Devilla’s blog post kicking it off.

 

I’ll be on it March 18th.  If you absolutely feel like you need to write what you’d like me to discuss in the comments below, I guess that’d be (very helpful) okay.

    @Jeremy,

    Could you elaborate more on why you don’t think HornGet is a viable option? Thanks.

    P.S. Sometimes is hard to get the “Add” button because the “fancy captcha” control covers it…

    @Frank,

    I think this topic needs its own post. I do not think that HornGet is the answer, or at least not the whole answer. I’d like to see us pursue a different concept more like gems.

    This sounds great, I am looking forward for it. The fact that listeners will be able to ask questions live is awesome!

    If only the linked item had a podcast feed rather than loads of placeholders…. :(

    Perfect place to dump stuff :) Was following some stuff on twitter regarding missing .NET infrastructure to resolve/get dependencies to .NET OSS. Since I can’t chime in I use the ol’ blog post commenting way: What’s wrong with HornGet, or does it just not cover the need?

    And while I’m at it, what’s .NET people’s obsession with ruby? Are we as .NET developers unable to recreate an ecosystem than is on a par with ruby’s?

    If this podcast is really about Igniting Your coding, it will be great, but if it’s just another podcast dictating what you should do and what you shouldn’t then don’t bother. I have noticed that when I listen to such judgemental podcasts, it most often confuses me and puts me away from coding :)

    This podcast better not be recorded in a bar where you talk about nothing important…
