Yesterday I had a chance to sit down and do Episode#4 of the CodeIgniter Podcast with Phil Sturgeon and Kenny Meyers. It was a blast! I’ve known them (both in person and “virtually”) for several years, and have always enjoyed talking with them, but I wasn’t sure how it would translate to the “podcast” environment. Well, I think it translated great.
In my opinion, the best part of any free-flow discussion like a podcast is that you get the (reasonably) unfiltered thoughts of people who are just plain excited by what they do. Sure I wish I had a few less “um”s, but its a small price to pay to get to sit and chat with 2 of the smarter people in the community.
Phil did an amazing job - and heck, got it nicely edited and posted pretty much instantly; everything that guy does is fast and high quality (there’s a joke in there somewhere). Kenny Meyers is one of those guys who you just want to sit and talk with, his observation about the shift in server administration off the host and onto the developer still has me re-thinking how I approach things. Both of them were pretty merciful on making fun of my accent (what’s that a-boot anyhow).
I’m looking forward to doing it again, and to listening to future episodes from others.
If you have a half hour to kill, or can listen to talking and still get your work done (I’m not one of those people), then go have a listen.
Also, is it “eye-on” auth, or “eee-on” auth? These are the questions that keep me up at night!
