Hanselminutes Podcast 64 - Interview at Mix with Lynda from Lynda.com

My sixty-fourth podcast is up, recorded on the floor at Mix. Google for "Lynda" and you'll find the legendary Lynda.com. Lynda Weinman has had a popular online presence for over 12 years. She created the original Web-Safe Color palette (remember when that mattered?) and now she sells nearly 20,000 training videos online via subscription. Silverlight is likely next. I chat with Lynda after we had lunch with Ray Ozzie and some other bloggers. Lynda created the FlashForward Conference, the largest Flash Conference out there - this year it's in Boston in September. As a geek aside, she also worked on the CGI for Return of the Jedi. I hope you enjoy this episode.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Telerik is a new sponsor. Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

  • The basic MP3 feed is here, and the iPod friendly one is here. There's a number of other ways you can get it (streaming, straight download, etc) that are all up on the site just below the fold. I use iTunes, myself, to listen to most podcasts, but I also use FeedDemon and it's built in support.
  • Note that for now, because of bandwidth constraints, the feeds always have just the current show. If you want to get an old show (and because many Podcasting Clients aren't smart enough to not download the file more than once) you can always find them at http://www.hanselminutes.com.
  • I have, and will, also include the enclosures to this feed you're reading, so if you're already subscribed to ComputerZen and you're not interested in cluttering your life with another feed, you have the choice to get the 'cast as well.
  • If there's a topic you'd like to hear, perhaps one that is better spoken than presented on a blog, or a great tool you can't live without, contact me and I'll get it in the queue!

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

One of the best interviews you've done Scott. Very interesting and exciting to listen to.

I have been a fan of Lynda.com for the past 4 years and their training and video material is top-notch!

I hope to see more .NET oriented videos from them soon.

Hey Scott,
I enjoy your podcasts though it would sure help if they descriptions. In iTunes seeing "Hanselminutes is a weekly..." repeatedly isn't all that useful.

Hello Scott,

there seems to be a problem with your WMA-Torrent-Feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/HanselminutesWMATorrent) as it ends with show 61, while the MP3-Torrent-Feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/HanselminutesMP3Torrent) ends with the correct show number of 64.

It gave me quite a scare when I first realized that uTorrent didn't pick up any new shows. I really feared that you had discontinued hanselminutes.

Keep up the good work. There are a lot of people out there relying on their weekly dosage of hanselminutes. ;)
