monotouch logoMy one-hundred-and-eighty-first podcast is up. Scott chats with Mono Product Manager Joseph Hill and Monospace conference organizer and continuous learner Scott Bellware about the state of Mono. Is Mono competition or diversity? How hard are cross platform apps? Can you really write apps for your iPhone in C#? Where can you learn more about Mono?

I thought that a discussion around a new Open Source Foundation should be produced as an "Open Source Conference Call." We had nearly 100 people call in and dozens had their voices heard. If you like this format, let me know! Also, follow me on Twitter as that's where these kinds of things are organized!

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.

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)

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

Scott! This is your chance! MonoDevelop for Wii!

You could port BabySmash to the Wii and little kids could walk around with the Wiimote and smash on things... er... well... maybe that isn't such a good idea after all...

Just finished listening to this, great show. I was a little disappointed you didn't address the whole "why MonoTouch isn't free" side of things though.

Not that I'm moaning about it not being free - was just interested to hear the reasons why from the horses mouth, whatever they maybe. Being ignorant, when I think Mono - I think open source. And when I think open source, I think free. That is all.
