Mark Mandel and Kai Koenig were recently inspired by the ThoughtWorks "Technology Radar" to create their own, which they featured in episode 31 of 2 Devs Down Under, their conversational podcast. Because they're both somewhere along the spectrum of CFML-to-ex-CFML developers and have worked with Flex etc, their opinions on various technologies are probably of more interest to other CFML developers than the original ThoughtWorks radar. This podcast episode is longer than usual - nearly two hours - and Mark and Kai would love to hear your responses in comments. I decided my response was a bit too long to post as a comment, so I am turning it into a blog post instead.

In case you haven't already heard, after the retirement of Matt and Peter's "cfweekly" podcast, Brian Meloche launched a new podcast called CFConversations. It alternates between roundtable discussions and interview format episodes and has already hit its eleventh episode! This is the fifth roundtable format episode and I was fortunate enough to be part of the discussion. The CFConversations blog entry covers the content in more detail than I want to go into here. Suffice it to say the discussion covered a lot of ground, from the free training offered by bFusion and bFlex in Indiana in early September to hiring CF developers to "Centaur" and the CFML Advisory Committee to SQL injection and CFUNITED (again). And an announcement from myself and Adam Haskell that the podcast seems to have scooped because someone else hasn't gotten around to making the announcement at the end of July like they promised! :)

ColdFusion Weekly has started the first in a series of roundtable discussion format podcasts. Edition 3.03 features Brian Meloche, Brian Swartfager, Dan Wilson, Terrence Ryan and me, as well as regular hosts Matt Woodward and Peter Farrell. The focus of this edition was the release of Flex 3, AIR 1 and Blaze DS as well as a look at Adobe's approach to open source. It was an enjoyable discussion with some differing opinions and looks like being the first of an ongoing series of roundtable format shows. Next week's edition will cover's New Atlanta's announcement of BlueDragon J2EE going open source, among other things. You can download episodes (sorry, "editions") from the site or subscribe via iTunes.

I've been toying with the idea of doing a podcast for a while and over the last week I've been actively soliciting feedback on the subject. I'm thinking of doing something that is primarily interview-focused but short (under 20 minutes). The (excellent) ColdFusion Weekly already covers the news so I'd mostly steer clear of that but I might wax lyrical about certain technical topics near to my heart. Would folks be interested in a podcast from me? Would you like to be interviewed by me?
