Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, September 16, 2018, and this is show number 697.

Chit Chat Across the Pond

This week’s Chit Chat Across the Pond was a really fun installment of Programming By Stealth with Bart Busschots. We learned how to make web forms with Bootstrap. I know, that does sound exciting, doesn’t it? But seriously with Bootstrap you can make beautiful and functional forms for people to fill out on the web using text boxes and dropdowns and check boxes and radio buttons. The cool thing is that Bootstrap makes you add the accessibility features along the way. Instead of an “oh it would be nice to help the poor blind people”, it’s “Hey, this is what we do now so get with the program!” Bart and I had a lot of fun and I think you’ll enjoy it too. Check it out in your podcatcher of choice under Chit Chat Across the Pond #563 or Programming By Stealth 62 of X, whichever feed is your pleasure. And of course you can always listen at… where you can find a link to Bart’s written tutorial.

Patrons are the foundational way the expenses get paid for the production of the NosillaCast and Chit Chat Across the Pond. Not only that, they’re a way of showing me that you get value from what you learn here. Do you learn a dollar’s worth a week between my reviews, Security Bits and Chit Chat? Are you at least entertained a dollar’s worth? Then consider becoming a patron by going to and pledging a weekly dollar amount to show your support.
