A Different Kind of Podcast

No Comments.

I am happy to announce that I am starting a podcast. I’ve been thinking about this for a while but I didn’t want to just do another podcast that talked about what is new in software development.

I’ve been listening to the Nerdist Podcast a lot and it gave me an idea. The Nerdist is fun because they talk to a lot of the people I like and often talk about the business more than just plug the latest project. I am interested in these same stories about software luminaries.

When we’re talking at events, I find lots of interesting folks that have great stories about how they got into this business. So that’s where “The Hello World Podcast” was born.

The idea is simple, I’m going to chat with the developers, speakers and thinkers that you care about and find out how they got started. This includes what was their first computer, first language and first job. You can listen to the podcast here:

The first episode is now live and I had the pleasure of interviewing my fellow Atlantan, and friend:  the great Jeremy Likness. He’s got a good story to tell and I hope you enjoy it.

This first episode is a learning process. I’m still learning about how best to record and produce the podcast so I hope you enjoy the content because you can expect the sound quality to improve as I get better at this. Let me know what you think!
