Well done chaps,
As if you didn’t already know, I am really pleased that there is a podcast for us creative developers / coders.
I like the phrase “digital chip wrappers” and will be trying to shoehorn it into my next meetings soon.
A lot of the points that get discussed in our studio were echoed in the podcast and I was pleased that Keith Peters was mentioned a couple of times, he has been, and continues to be part of the furniture in the creative coding community.
Wil lyou be doing guest interviews do you think, that would be really great? Would love ot hear from Keith / Soulwire / Andre Michelle / Piercer etc.
Looking forward to the next one.
Furniture? I guess I’ll take that as a compliment. 😉
Yes, great podcast guys. I look forward to more.

good work fellas! But I think you need to invest in a better mic!!!

Excellent first episode guys! You don’t know how excited I am to hear that there is a podcast in this area of programming. In fact, I’ll tell you; I’m very excited! =p
Adam: Baby steps. I co-host a podcast called ExplicitWeb and we only considered upgrading the mics after 10 months. The most important thing right now is the content and gaining a listener base, which I’m sure Seb and Iain won’t have a problem doing.
Thanks for the podcast, really enjoyed it. Looking forward to seeing where it goes.
Hey dudes, first of all, loved the podcast. Conversational style is brilliant, I learned a lot.
Sorry, that is a little confusing. I am encouraging learning JS because it has capabilities and features that are squeezing Flash for simpler rich content like slideshows, graphs etc. For games and even richer animated content it’s very difficult to get JS/HTML working fast on iOS. This has been discussed at great length on my recent blog posts http://sebleedelisle.com/2011/01/html5-vs-flash-the-aftermath/ and http://sebleedelisle.com/2011/01/html-and-flash-the-aftermaths-aftermath/ – it’s still a sensitive subject as you can see! 🙂
it’s always interesting listening to opinions on emerging technologies. Maybe for next episode you could get in on one tech that for some reason haven’t been as much talk about, WebGL. It’s enabled on all upcoming versions of all major browsers, but IE, and it’s a good candidate to be included in next gen iOS.
Haven’t had time to listen yet (will tonight) but my mic recommendation is the Røde Podcaster (http://rodemic.com/microphone.php?product=Podcaster). It’s easy to work and I’ve had stellar results, always.
These are the mics that we use on ExplicitWeb. We’re yet to use them in a full recording though, but they certainly look and feel the part!
It’s the new Peter Cook and Dudley Moore!
Thanks for all your lovely comments everyone. We know the sound wasn’t too amazing this time – it’s not our mics, it’s because we used a grab of a Skype feed for my voice. Next time we’re going to “double end” it (oooh err) and it should sound a bit better.
How do you mean? We record audio directly from Skype (3 people) and have no issue with the sound quality.
It was probably a combination of dodgy mics, poor skype quality, over-enthusiastic post production and mp3 compression. Bear with us – we’re still learning 🙂
Haha. Give it a few episodes and you’ll have most of the kinks worked out. I cringe whenever I listen back to episode one of my podcast. :p
Great podcast! I love the idea of platform agnostic creative coders. This is exactly what the community needed. Please keep them coming.
Very much enjoyed the discussion. Been playing around with Unity much more lately and it seems to be popping up much more frequently in various discussions online.
Congratulations on a great first podcast!
hey guys, nice podcast! 🙂
however I think you’re not exactly right about reasons why JS devs use certain patterns.
for example, using ‘new Array()’ is considered a bad practice, but not because it’s longer, but because it’s inconsistent. Try running in the console: ‘new Array(3)’, ‘new Array(1,2,3)’, and ‘new Array(-1)’.
also, I think you mentioned single var pattern (‘var x, y, z’) – it also has nothing to do with size of your code. It’s done to make it clear to the developer that the variable exists in that point (because of hoisting and lack of block scope in JS – I don’t know if this behavior exists in AS too).
Hi wildcard! This was a classic case of me using a bad example to illustrate a point, even Iain called me out on it during the recording. I was trying to make the point that sometimes JSers prefer a certain code style to save characters. Albeit very badly 🙂
Re the var x,y,z : an actionscripter would usually use :
So it was more about style rather than scoping (unless I’m missing something!) We’ll try harder next time I promise 🙂
Awesome! Jangaroo is hard to set up, but it is great once you get past that. it took me 4 hours to figure out how to compile. 🙂 but now it is no problem.
I really enjoyed it, too. Keep it up fellas!
Great work gents.
Is this going to be a regular weekly/monthly gig? And are you going to tackle a different subject area with each episode? Keep ’em coming…
Schedule not worked out yet. Definitely going to cover any technology that lets you make circles bounce around on a screen 🙂
Already said I love the podcast, but does anyone know of any other podcast similar to this? Already listened to it three times. Want more!!
Thanks so much for the encouragement! New episode coming in a week or so.

oh very cool. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the links.
