NC #635 Conversation of Things, Photo Albums People Want to See, Subscription Models for Software, Security Bits

I was on the inaugural episode of the Conversations of Things podcast with Joe Dugandzic. I’ll explain how to make photo albums with Apple Photos that people actually want to see (spoiler, it’s about keywords). I’ll challenge some assumptions Bart Busschots made in his Let’s Talk Photography podcast about subscription models for software. And Bart is back with another fine edition of Security Bits.

Conversation of Things Podcast – Episode 1 with Allison Sheridan

This week I had the great honor of being on the very first episode of a new podcast called the Conversations of Things. Joe Dugandzic of Smarter Home Life is the host, and it’s going to be an interview show with tech people about the Internet of Things and Home Automation. Joe is such a cool guy – I feel like I’ve known him for years but we only met six months ago. We had a great time chatting. You can listen to the audio at smarterhomelife.com/…, but he also let me embed the video into podfeet.com. He hasn’t submitted the podcast to iTunes yet but he’ll get on that shortly.

Subscription Models for Software – More Profit and Better Software?

Software rent vs buyOne of my favorite podcasts is Bart Busschots’s Let’s Talk Photography show. He often has a panel of guests on to talk about photography techniques, but he also has shows that are just Bart teaching on a subject or simply musing. I like the panel episodes and I love the Bart-only shows.

In Episode 45 entitled “Thoughts on Software” he walks through some thoughts on choosing photo image editing software. He doesn’t compare features so his advice could really apply to any software you use, not just photography software. I want you to go listen to his show (at lets-talk.ie/…) but I also want to talk about what he said and perhaps provide another viewpoint. Ideally you’ll stop listening/reading me now and go listen to Bart and come back. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

CCATP #494 – Bart Busschots JSDoc Demo

I’ve been asking Bart a lot of questions in the back channel as I struggle to understand the documentation he has provided in our latest few sessions of homework assignments. He had an epiphany last week that he had never explained the documentation methods itself, which was certainly adding to my confusion.

He decided to take a step back and explain step by step using video. He created a video screencast of the entire process of creating documentation using JSDoc. Then during the audio recording you’ll hear in the podcast, he walked through it again while I asked him (lots of) questions. Hopefully it will be as eye opening to you as it was to me. He also demonstrates his favorite tools for the process.

You can find Bart’s blog post with the embedded video screencast at bartbusschots.ie/…
