Upcoming interview – please post your questions

The week of March 14th (date not finalized yet) I will be interviewing Nate Koechley, a front end engineer for Yahoo!. Mr. Koechley was kind enough to agree to spend some time with us, and to make the most of this, I’m soliciting questions from you, the loyal listeners. Yahoo! has recently open sourced their UI widget set, is developing new map and mail interfaces, and has been incresingly supportive of the developer community over the past several years. Now is your chance to ask a Yahoo! engineer about what’s going on and what might be coming up!

Please visit the webdevradio.com forum at http://webdevradio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=62 and post any questions you may have for Mr. Koechley there. I will do my best to get those questions in the interview. Alternatively you can simply email comments@webdevradio.com with your questions. Thanks!

Episode 17: Blogging, RSS, CF sites, PHP OOP, Yahoo!, PHP on .NET

This is a bit of a ‘tie up loose ends’ podcast – we hear from a listener in Sweden about typical PHP OOP usage and learn about Yahoo!’s commitment to PHP, a PHP/.NET compiler, an upcoming AJAX conference, how I’m getting paid to use wordpress, and how parsing RSS isn’t the easiest thing in the world.
