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 !

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 .
