This Developer's Life 1.0.7 - Audacity
In this episode Rob and I talk to 3 developers who have pulled off some pretty audacious maneuvers:
- Alex Payne, former API Developer Lead at Twitter, talks about the (somewhat insane) move to leave Twitter, and (somewhat more insane) choice to “reinvent banking” with BankSimple.
- Miguel de Icaza, founder of the GNOME project and creator of Mono talks about creating a clone of the .NET framework - all because he didn’t like what else was out there at the time for Linux.
