The majority of this episode is a webdev discussion with James Ward (Adobe) and Andy Oliver (buni.org). There’s a short recap here about my travails with ValueWeb’s horrible migration disaster, a partial OSCON wrapup, mention of the Windmill testing project, and a promise of 4-5 more presentation recordings from OSCON.

This is a repost of a missing episode due to valueweb’s extremely poor server migration (read: meltdown). I can’t recall the specifics of this episode, but I did mention my (then) upcoming OSCON presentation on SOLR and the OurSQL podcast.
