Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, September 13, 2020, and this is show number 801.
Chit Chat Across the Pond
After giving us the problem to be solved, he explains the history of the original version control systems and how we’ve evolved to a more flexible model that has been adopted by the open source community as well as by big companies. This episode is a bit of a teaser because we don’t actually get to start doing any work with version control but it’s still really interesting.
We also have a call to listeners to help us come up with a new project. Version control will only be fun to learn if we have some code to control. We’ve gone pretty far with our clocks, and polishing them even more might be fun, but I’m betting we could get some new ideas for some fun web app to try to build. Think of an itch you want scratched. Maybe you aren’t taking the Programming By Stealth class, but you have an idea for a web app that you wish existed. Anybody can throw out ideas so help us come up with a fun thing to build.
You can subscribe to Programming By Stealth in your podcatcher of choice, and read Bart’s tutorial shownotes at pbs.bartificer.net/…
This coming Tuesday, the 15th of September, at 10 am Pacific Time, Apple is having an announcement, and you know that means many NosillaCastaways will be giddy with excitement. If you have time to join Steve and me and the other NosillaCastaways during the announcement, we’d love to chat live with you about what’s cool, what’s lame, what we can’t afford or what we wish they’d announced, join our Discord chat at podfeet.com/chat. it’s the same chatroom where we yak with the listeners while I’m creating the NosillaCast in the live show, but during the announcements, we will not be interrupting the show with our audio or video. For once I get to chat with the audience while Tim Cook gets to do the entertaining. Hope to see a lot of you there!
After the announcement, on Wednesday, Lory Gil will be joining me again on Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite to talk about all the new toys. She’s such a joy to hang out with, I think I’m looking forward to that even more than the announcements themselves!
Support the Show
I talk a lot about how Patreon is a great way to support the Podfeet Podcasts, but there’s another great way, and that’s through one-time donations at PayPal. This week both Janet and Christoph opened their wallets and sent over their hard-earned cash to show their support for the work we do here. I can’t thank them enough, and if you’d like to be a hero like them, please head over to podfeet.com/paypal and show your support.
That’s going to wind this up for this week. Don’t forget to send in your Dumb Questions, comments and suggestions by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org, follow me on twitter @podfeet. Remember, everything good starts with podfeet.com/. podfeet.com/patreon, podfeet.com/paypal, podfeet.com/facebook, podfeet.com/slack! And if you want to join in the fun of the live show, head on over to podfeet.com/live on Sunday nights at 5pm Pacific Time and join the friendly and enthusiastic NosillaCastaways.
