Thanks for the Great Road Trip!

We’re home. It’s a fantastic feeling, but we had a great time. I wanted to take some time to thank all the great attendees, guests and helpers that made this a great trip. We got some great podcasts and hopefully encouraged a lot of people to try out ASP.NET Core!

We took a lot of pictures and you can see some of them by clicking on the mosaic to the right!

Some statistics of the trip:

On the Road Again...

The Hello World Road Trip part two has started. Me and the missus headed out of Atlanta to Belgium for our first stop.

We arrived at Techorama, I did a couple of talks and recorded our Belgium podcast with the great Bill Wagner. That should be up this weekend.

We have just over half of the stops left in the trip. If you want a chance to see me record a live podcast and talk about ASP.NET Core, sign up for this free event in the following cities:

Hello World Road Trip - So Far

We’re in San Francisco today and I thought it would be a good time to write a quick update to the trip. As some of you know, we’re currently in the middle of a twenty-five city trip and so far so good.

Tomorrow night we do the event here in San Francisco (with the amazing Beth Massi as our guest) and I’m excited to do our sixth event. It’s been an amazing couple of weeks and we can’t wait for the rest of the trip to unfold.

Me and my wife are travelling to each city to put on the road trip and we’ve done events in Atlanta, Birmingham, Austin, Phoenix, and San Diego. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Jim Wooley, Todd Miranda, Rod Paddock, Joe Guadagno, and Tim Huckaby so far.

Hello World Podcast Changes

Last November when I decided to start the Hello World Podcast, I wasn’t sure how long I could sustain it. I’m having fun doing the show and getting to speak to the most amazing people in our field. I’m most surprised by the different stories.

Because I started with a computer as a kid and then just fell into software, I thought I’d get that story over and over again. But that’s not been the case for the most part. I’ve heard from people who were in medical school, fighter pilots, retail management, and even people who thought they hated writing software. It’s been an amazing year.

Get your C++ on with Kate Gregory

I’ve known of Kate Gregory forever. When C++ was the core of what I did in software development, her advice and books were crucial to my understanding of how the great language worked.

So no shocker when I had a chance to get her behind the mic for the Hello World Podcast, I couldn’t pass it up. We talk about her start from punch cards through to C++ 11 and the revolution that the new standards have had on the language. If you’re a current or past fan of C++, you need to listen to this one!

Finally Talked Kathleen Dollard into Doing the Podcast

It took more than I expected to get Kathleen to join me on the podcast. But after begging, pleading, and some honest compliments she gave in. I think it was well worth the wait!

If you’re a fan of Kathleen like I am, I think you’ll enjoy her story of how her career unfolded. It all started with a cast-off NASA computer when she was growing up in Huntsville, AL. And I don’t’ think she’s ever stopped since.

John Robbins Debugs the Hello World Podcast

John Robbins has saved me in uncountable ways over the years due to is great work on books and tool for debugging. That’s why I was so excited when he agreed to be on the show.

John and I have crossed paths but never had much of a chance to chat about how we each got started. We get to hear a great story that starts with the Green Berets and shows how special forces can make you a great developer.

On This Week's Podcast: Jon Flanders Files a Brief

Jon Flanders and I go back to our DevelopMentor days and now we’re both authors at Pluralsight. It was great catching up and see how he got started.

After all the time I’ve known him, I would have never guessed he used to be a lawyer before he dove into software development. I found it particularly interesting on how his experience as a lawyer informed his work as a software developer.

Phil Haack and a Bad Joke on This Week's Podcast

As a fan of the direction of ASP.NET, I’ve been an avid fan of Phil Haack’s for some time now. His clarity of communicating why the web should work definitely helped ASP.NET become the great framework it is today. He’s now doing the same thing at GitHub!

I get to finally use my bad joke about his last name on this week’s podcast. We also talk about his start, the move to Seattle to work at Microsoft and how to keep Californian’s out of Washington state.

I Turn The Tables on Richard Campbell This Week

I’ve had a great time being interviewed by the .NET Rocks guys over the years in a variety of ways. This week on the Hello World Podcast I get to turn the tables and interview Richard.

We talk about how he got started by soldering cash machines and his early programming on a TRS-80 Model 1. It’s a great story, but would you expect anything different from Richard Campbell?

Do You Write C++? Then Listen to my Podcast This Week

I had the enormous thrill to talk with Scott Meyers (of Effective C++ fame) on my Podcast this week. If you write C++ or even used to write C++, then Scott is likely as important to your career as he has been to mine. Talking to him this week included how he got started, how the C++ spec has evolved and how much better Oregon is as related to California.

Jim Wilson on the Hello World Podcast

In my last episode recorded at the recent Pluralsight Author Summit, Jim Wilson sits down with me and talks his early days. Jim explains how metal-shop and a TRS-80 both led him to get started in this business.

Jim and I don’t necessarily agree about Windows Phone but at least we’re both passionate about mobile platforms. Hear his talk about his early days with Windows Mobile and why he got into Android.

Julie Lerman on the Hello World Podcast

Back in 2002, I released my first book. I was living in Boston at the time and I embarked on a mini-tour of New England to promote the book. I went to a lot of user groups back them to talk about ADO.NET, but a special one was when I visited Julie Lerman and the Vermont .NET Users Group.

That trip started a long friendship. I consider Julie a special gem of technical knowledge. She has a special voice and really cares about celebrating women in technology. I was really happy to hear she’d be on my podcast and this week’s episode is a testament to that. I hope you enjoy it!

OdeToCode Visits the Hello World Podcast

This week I got to talk to K. Scott Allen of OdeToCode and Pluralsight fame. If you haven’t had a chance to watch his Pluralsight courses or hear him talk at a conference near you, you are certainly missing out.

In the latest episode of the Hello World Podcast, I get to chat with him about his early life in computers including his beloved TI-99, writing code to test Chocolate, his decision about joining a gaming company and even hooking up MIDI keyboards to his Atari ST back in the day. I hope you enjoy listening!

I've been Fried - Part 1!

Url: http://deepfriedbytes.com/podcast/episode-9-a-p...

Recently I sat down with Keith Elder and Chris Woodruff to talk about all things Silverlight. I guess they sparked my long-windedness because we talked so long they had to split into two parts.  We discuss basic Silverlight topics as well as how I think the Olympics will impact Silverlight and even some comparisons with similar Adobe products.  Go grab it while its hot.
