PlayWhat do you do when you're not staring at your computer screen? What obsession grips you as you drive home? In this episode we ask David Heinemeier Hansson and Pete Brown this very question.

I'd also like to encourage you to check out the last two episodes of This Developer's Life. We realize this isn't your typical podcast. It's not very technical, and it's not packed with information. We mean this show as an antidote to the usual technical talk shows as we try to dig more into issues and emotions that affect developers. We try to get to the center core of the developer and what makes them tick. Give us a listen and if you like the show, please review us on iTunes and Subscribe.

Download Episode 2.0.6 "Play" here or listen online.

Also, please check out our last two shows you might have missed. We're very proud of how they turned out.


Episode 2.0.4 - Taste

2.0.5 Typo

Who cares about typefaces and why should you? Well, these guys do and you should start caring. Rob and Scott explore the world of reading online with one of the godfathers in the world of typeface and fonts.

In this episode we talk to Bill Hill, the bearded Scotsman who created ClearType and Geoffrey Grosenbach, notable typeface enthusiast.


Episode 2.0.4 - Taste

2.0.4 Taste

What is taste? What is style? Do you have it? Scott and Rob have no idea what it is or how to get it - but they know it's important. In this show they talk to a designer who flexxes his good taste for a living - and a developer who is committed to spreading good taste where he can.

I think your "review us on iTunes" link is broken.

Any way to make suggestions for "This Developer's Life?" I am interested in hearing other developer's opinions on Certifications, and their value.

It would also be cool if we get a chance to suggest some questions prior to the show if Scott can post the topic a few days before the show (I realize this is not always possible). We don't want to make more work for Scott but even if he just quickly skims the questions and takes a few with him that would be great.
