I Have Made Fire – I Coded in Perl with Regex!

ChaptersWe’re entering chapter 3 of my quest to provide chapter markers in the podcast. The original request was from Joe LaGreca but since I’ve started talking about it on the show, people have been coming out of the woodwork saying, “Yes, please!”

I have been working my little fingers and brain to the bone on this and I’ve figured out a really geeky solution. But first, let’s walk through what doesn’t work.

To review, I record the show in Hindenburg Journalist. I stop recording when I end each topic anyway, so it’s super easy to hit ⌘-control-enter to add a chapter and then type in the subject. The problem is that Hindenburg isn’t embedding those chapters on export. The dev and I have gone back and forth a few times and they seem to be saying that the chapters should be maintained, but they’re definitely not in the file.

CCATP #493 Kelly Guimont on App Camp for Girls

This week our guest is Kelly Guimont. Kelly is a contributing editor to the Mac Observer and also a volunteer at App Camp for Girls, a program that introduces iOS programming to girls in grades 7-9. We talk about how a 3rd grade teacher asking her to crawl under a desk to plug in an Apple ][e turned her into the computer nerd she is today. She explains why you need a duck to be a programmer and a hula hoop to teach girls to code.

If you’d like to help out App Camp for Girls, go to appcamp4girls.com and look for the contribute button. Lend your time or give your money or buy some swag! If you’d like to follow Kelly you can find her @verso.

NC #616 udoq, CodeRunner, Olly, CrashPlan, Wynd

Megan Morrone and Jason Howell from TWiT join me this week on Chit Chat Across the Pond to talk about their swap of iOS and Android. Our last three interviews from CES include the udoq Mobile Docking Station, Olly’s Robotic Personal Assistant, and the Wind Smart Air Purifier. I’ll tell you about my hunt for the perfect code editor and why I chose CodeRunner. A surprising turn of events as CrashPlan actually succeeds at getting my offsite backups to work. It’s a really interesting story of what caused the problem and how they fixed it. It even highlights a shortcoming of Backblaze.

In this week’s episode I’ll tell you about an awesome free training site called CodeCademy where I’m supplementing my JavaScript training for Programming By Stealth. Then I’ll tell you about Together, an app from Reinvented Software that might be the Evernote alternative you’ve been looking for. Then I’ll go on a bit of a rant about all the whining I’ve been hearing on other tech podcasts about the Mac App Store and its pricing model. Then Bart Busschots will join us with this week’s edition of Security Bits.
