Hanselminutes Podcast 57 - Polita Paulus and The Minutes on Nine #1

My fifty-seventh podcast is up. This episode is the audio portion of the Channel 9 cooperative cross-over video with Rory.

(Disclaimer: To be clear, no one at C9 is paying anyone anything. There's no money involved, but Microsoft DOES have free Diet Coke, and I did take some home with me.)

This podcast is, ahem, audibly-improved (Carl's audio team did the magic) and is the interview we had with actual-ASP.NET developer Polita Paulus from Building 42, along with her boss Matt Gibbs. We literally wandered into their office unplanned and unscripted and had a fine chat. They were both very good sports considering that we pounced on them.

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

Our sponsors are Telerik and /n software.

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
  • 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?

Congrats on the redesign. The page is less busy.

It seems some MS engineers are so immeresed in their jobs that they are no t aware of what's out there that affect or be effected by their work. Books, blogs, new technologies..etc. I was surprised that the PM didn't know what Ruby On Rails was.
