I've been thinking for a while about doing some podcasting/netcasting again. After an e-mail I got from one of the vraptor guys I thought doing interviews with people involved with the development of programming languages and frameworks might be interesting. There are plenty of these that are not very well known but that people might be interested in. And I always like to hear the authors talk about their own creation. So I started the Talking Code netcast. February 8th I talked to Guilherme Silveira and Nico Steppat of vraptor. Vraptor is a Java webframework that favours convention over configuration. It borrows ideas from different JBoss projects and frameworks like Ruby on Rails. It took me a while to find time to edit the interview, but it's up!
It was the first time in my life that I did an interview, so I still have to get the hang of it. Any feedback is appreciated. If you know of any interesting projects to talk about, or run one yourself, drop me a line.
