Hanselminutes Podcast 99 - Mac Development with Panic's Steven Frank
My ninety-ninth podcast is up. Seriously, 99. That's INSANE. We've got a special guest for the 100th show next week, but this show is equally awesome.
In this episode, I sit down with Steven Frank, co-founder of the Award-Winning Mac Development shop Panic. Panic develops software like Transmit (THE Apple FTP client), Unison (The Apple NNTP client) and most recently Coda, a "one window" web development IDE.
Oddly enough, they are also the only licensed provider of Katamari swag in North America, and their shopping cart interface is bangin'.

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 Hanselman is a former professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee. He is a failed stand-up comic, a cornrower, and a book author.
BTW, the one with your dad was EXCELLENT. Really enjoyed it, and reminded me to prod my parents for stories from before I was around.
Some of the great things including finding new fonts, images, sounds and graphics to play with as well as being able to open partially-downloaded movie files.
We have Mac, Linux and Windows versions of our app and it's shocking how Apple deprecates APIs w/ total disregard for backward comapt or existing codebases! For example, at the 64-bit porting lab put on by Apple, we've learned that the older UI APIs (Carbon) have been deprecated and are will not be supported on 64-bit Macs. All apps must move to using Cocoa APIs -- this is a HUGE burden for our Mac devs! If this were MS, a revolt would ensue.
A Discussion of Hanselminutes Show #99
Thanks for the great show Scott. I also really enjoyed the show with your dad. Keep 'em coming!
That was the funniest thing I've heard in years!
This was an awesome podcast and it's timing was perfect for me. I'm slowly taking taking on Mac stuff as a hobby. I've got a while till I learn the things that I need to know about it's architecture, it's subsystem, and... well.. how to USE it. I've been playing in Best Buy every day for the past two weeks playing with the new MacBook Air (I'm fairly certain they think I'm casing the place), I've got a lot of the shortcuts down and have obtained some ninja skills in the multi-touch.
Since I've been doing most of my work from virtual machines and almost all my development over RDP in the past year, I'm at the place in my life where I think I can be fairly platform independent in terms of my local platform. Therefore... next major purchase: MacBook Air! Well, ok, after they realize that a 4200rpm is a joke or that $1000 for a SSD is a bit much AND they get 4GB of RAM. Other than that, given the release of Office 2008, I have absolutely no reason to use Vista or XP locally.

Another great show, it was interesting to hear the Apple side. Interesting you two went to school together too.
