Codechat 071 – Fusion 360 Tip: Designing on a Face

6 months ago
Fusion 360 by Autodesk is my application of choice for making things – real things – plastic and metal and wood things. I’ve often found myself wanting to select a face in my design and do some fancy 2D graphics on that face, but the sketch environment in Fusion 360 is pretty basic. I finally […]

CodeChat 070 – Meet the Interns

6 months ago
The energy and enthusiasm level of a single intern is inspiring to me, so I was glad to get three recent Microsoft interns into Studio C at Channel 9 for a little code chat about their experience coming onboard at Microsoft as intern evangelists. It’s really fun to hear what technology-related university degree programs are […]

CodeChat 069 – Blockchain All the Things!

6 months ago
As you may know, I’m pretty excited about blockchain technology. It’s a super creative algorithm. It’s interesting how a system that distributes data (or in many cases logic too) actually gives all of the participants more ownership and authenticity in their own data. My guest on the show today is Cale Teeter (@windozer) who knows […]

CodeChat 065 – The Amazing JS Data

CodeChat 065 – The Amazing JS Data

1 year ago
This week on CodeChat I had the honor of talking with Jason Dobry – the creator of JS Data. JS Data is an open source ORM for JavaScript that I call amazing because frankly it is. Being JavaScript, it’s as happy in the client (as in browsers, for example) as it is on the server, […]

CodeChat 063 – Eric Ang from Dolby

2 years ago
I recorded a lot of CodeChat episodes from Build 2016, and this is the last. This means the last time you have to look at the same screaming plaid shirt. This is a fun one though, because this time I (and my shirt) are talking to Jason Fox of Microsoft and Eric Ang of Dolby […]

CodeChat 061 – Talking TypeScript and Angular 2.0 with Bill Wagner

2 years ago
Bill is like me in at least one way – he loves TypeScript and Angular 2.0. I pulled Bill aside during the Build conference and we had a little chat about TypeScript – a typed superset of JavaScript – and Angular 2.0 – the new version of Google’s popular web framework. This language/framework combination makes […]

CodeChat 060 – Toradex Makes a Cool, Little Windows 10 IoT Board

2 years ago
Daniel Lang from Toradex (@toradex) joins me as we take a break from all of the software talk to chat about something that is sometimes more exciting – hardware. Toradex makes devices. The Colibri which he shows off here is an ARM-based module that’s fully capable of running Windows 10 IoT Core. This welcomes it […]
