What is this??



Carl and Richard talk to GitHub denizen and former Microsoftie Phil Haack about what it means to build open source software. The conversation starts off with a reminder that back in Phil's Microsoft days, he was a huge advocate of taking various Microsoft products open source - and today it's actually happening! Phil may have moved on to GitHub, but the spirit of open source has permeated the web team at Microsoft, the ultimate manifestation being ASP.NET vNext! So what about your projects? What does it takes to make them open source, and what benefits can you expect?

Phil Haack (yes, it's pronounced "hack") works at GitHub finding ways to make it better for .NET and Windows developers everywhere. Prior to GitHub, he was a senior Program Manager at Microsoft responsible for shipping ASP.NET MVC, NuGet, among other projects. These projects were released under open source licenses and helped serve as examples of the open source model for shipping software to other teams at Microsoft.

Phil is a co-author of the popular Professional ASP.NET MVC series and regularly speaks at conferences around the world. He's also made several appearances on technology podcasts such as .NET Rocks!, Hanselminutes, Herding Code, and The Official jQuery Podcast.

Carl and Richard circle back with Mark Miller for a whirlwind discussion on the biology of user interface design. Actually, it's the biology of humans as it relates to UI, focusing (no pun intended) on the eyes - how exactly does eyesight work? What cultural and psychological conditioning affects how you see? And ultimately, how can we apply the understanding of eyesight to make applications that are easier to use, easier to understand, and more enjoyable? Mark has years of experience in building great UI, and has distilled the core elements down to the biology of the user!

Mark Miller is a 5-year C# MVP Alumni with strong expertise in decoupled design, plug-in architectures, and great user interfaces. Mark is Chief Architect of the IDE Tools division at Developer Express, and is the visionary force behind CodeRush. Mark is a top-ranked speaker at conferences around the world and has been writing software for over three decades.

Carl and Richard talk to Daniel Piessens about building continuous delivery solutions. The conversation starts out with an explanation of the differences between continuous integration, deployment, and delivery - and the fact that there are business decisions to deal with there, not just technical decisions! Daniel also digs into the challenges around getting Operations deeply involved in the testing process so that they have control over features as they are developed and can be turned off and on of your canary servers when needed. Lots of cool thinking about the future of software development with DevOps practices.

Dan is a senior consultant for Centare where he passionately advocates agile principles and infects his clients with wonderful new ideas. Having 13 years of experience in the software industry, Dan has architected world class enterprise applications in the transportation, insurance, and healthcare industries.

His current passion involve guidance for development teams on all things "continuous," and promoting best practices for the latest Microsoft Web and Azure technologies. When he's not geeking out, you can find him spending time with wife and children or playing the piano.
