February 2009 - Posts
Earlier today I noticed a new post on Scott Hanselmans blog, where he lists potential technical podcasts for .Net developers and asks other to put up their lists.
Now, most of the ones on his list are pretty much the same as I subscribe to, but having quite an interest in non .Net web development and RIA etc. I do have a couple he’s not mentioning.
I figured I’ll just add the ones which are a bit different from the ones mentioned on Scots' list.
- Pixel8ed http://getpixel8ed.com
This is a podcast by Craig Shoemaker, who also does the Polymorphic podcast, where the Polymorphic podcast is aimed at general programming and .Net concepts. Pixel8ed is focused on UX and related ideas and areas.
- RIA Weekly http://www.riaweekly.com/
A podcast dedicated to news in the RIA space. Even though the podcast is sponsored by Adobe and one of the hosts is Ryan Stewart, a platform evangelist for Adobe, they do a pretty decent job of covering news across the board, not just Adobe specific things.
- Boagworld http://www.boagworld.com/
”A podcast for those who design, develop or run websites”, a podcast mainly about web design but also covering thing like accessibility and web standards.
Thursday last week I did a presentation on RIA and Silverlight for the Perth .Net Community of Practice and as promised here’s the links from the presentation.
Some great examples of how RIA can be used to enhance the user experience of a website.
Where does the desktop end and where does the web start, RIA blurring the lines
RIA Benchmarking, Bubbelmark is an animation test to practically benchmark different RIA technologies against each other.
Shine Draw(http://www.shinedraw.com/) – Flash vs Silverlight repository, compares various animation effects implemented in Flash and Silverlight and lets the visitors vote which is better.
Thanks to everyone who came to the presentation, if you have any feedback or questions, don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
