Dear Listeners,

Very recently I have had a great chat with T Ashok around software testing. He is a CEO of Stag Software, which focuses in creating unique testing solutions for their clients worldwide. In around 45 minutes Ashok did touch base on various facades of testing. Software testing is an old topic which has become very exciting in recent years but yet many of us don't recognize this excitement. This podcast is a must listen if you are tester, or even if you have some keen interest in software  development in general. If you want to reach out to their blog, it's here.

cheers !

Friends,

I had a chat with Prashant Pund and it was a nice intro chat on an influential topic for software engineers - Design Patterns. Though it is hard to do justice to any topic over audio podcasts, Prakash did explain the "why" behind patterns, and it made a lot of sense. He runs his own firm called AgileSoft Methodologies. He did mention a couple of books and websites that could be a very good start to learn patterns.

Note: The audio quality of this podcast is not all that great, but it settles down after a few minutes so please do bear with us.

cheers !

Dear Friends,

                      In our last episode we spoke about software performance and this time I thought we would touch base on software performance monitoring. For that, I spoke with Mahesh Somani, who currently works for eBay as distinguished engineer. It is a rather difficult topic to cover and I had fun talking to Mahesh and hope you will enjoy it too. 

cheers !

Friends,

               We have a new podcast around User Experience(UX) with Ashutosh Kumar. Ashutosh is too deep into UX and I really enjoyed talking to him. He currently works for Yahoo! . In the past worked with companies like Human Factors International. All his work experience has been around UX so he surely knows this stuff !

               As we all know UX is so important these days, and many folks around us claim to know it. Just designing good-looking material is not UX and that is what exactly Ashutosh explains us during this podcast. We had a phone call not a skype call this time. During the chat, Ashutosh did mention some URLs which one must visit, and they are listed below. His one presentation can be found here .

cheers !

Dear Friends,
                       Siddartha is devoted to Agile computing and in 40 odd minutes we could just touch base on this topic at a very high level but it was an informative and thought proving talk. Siddharta is the founder of Silver Stripe Software, a Chennai based start-up that develops agile tools for teams. His personal blog is here.
Note: This time around our Skype connection did not support us the way it usually does. So the voice is breaking at some places and at some places we have some background noise because of slow connection or some other technical glitch which we just could not avoid this time. For podcast enthusiasts it should not matter too much. I hope :)
cheers !
