ThinkRelevace: The Podcast, Episode 011

The latest episode of the podcast is available in the usual place. On this one, we talk to Jen Myers, one of our designers. I've worked with her a few times now, and she's great. We had a fun conversation about the various things she's into, most notably Girl Develop It Columbus.

Quite a long time elapsed between recording this episode and posting it. That certainly had nothing to do with my desire to get it out there, but other episodes had tighter timing considerations. So I'm very glad that the schedule cleared enough that we could finally get this one out there.

Go have a listen, already!

ThinkRelevance: The Podcast - Episodes 009 and 010

I've been a bit remiss in posting here. I imagine most people that listen to the podcast are watching out for new episodes over at the company blog, anyway. Still, I wanted to call out these episodes because they're two of my favorites so far.

First, on episode 009, I got a chance to talk to Alan. We talked about Relevance's recent re-launch of our training efforts, which was cool. But my favorite part of the interview was the bit in the second half where Alan launches into a really interesting explanation of some academic papers he's been looking at lately. Good stuff.

On episode 010, I finally got to interview Stu Halloway. I've wanted to have Stu on since the beginning of the podcast. We talked about Datomic, of course, although not exclusively. You can tell by the extensive show notes that we covered a lot of ground.

Both episodes were a lot of fun for me, and I'm already looking forward to having both of these guys on again.

ThinkRelevance: The Podcast, Episode 008

I realize we just released a podcast two days ago, but a) there hadn't been one for almost a month before that, and b) I had already recorded this one with Fogus talking about Himera, his ClojureScript compilation web service. Himera just got a facelift and some new functionality, so it seemed like a good time to put out an episode where we talk a bit more about it.

Of course, we didn't limit ourselves to just talking about ClojureScript. We also hit reading, German rock, and a bunch of other interesting stuff.

Go listen!

ThinkRelevance: The Podcast, Episode 007

I just published ThinkRelevance: the Podcast, episode 007 to the intertubes. Have a listen! We talk to Clinton Nixon (the man so awesome it took two presidents to name him), about his Ruby on Rails setup. Clinton is an interesting guy, and I had fun talking to him.

ThinkRelevance: The Podcast, Episode 006

The latest episode of ThinkRelevance: The Podcast is up. On this episode, I had a chance to talk to Larry Karnowski, mostly about Relevance culture. Relevance has a very interesting set of practices and traditions that are a large part of both why it's so fun to work there and why we're so good at what we do (if I do say so myself). Larry is one of the key keepers of that culture, and he does a great job of explaining what many of those practices and traditions are.

Have a listen!

ThinkRelevance: The Podcast, Episode 005

Ever since I began thinking about doing a Relevance podcast, I knew that I was going to want to have Michael Parenteau on the show. Michael is head of our design department, and a designer himself. He has a great attitude, and brings both that and his considerable talent to everything he does. I happened to be down in Durham the week that we released the new website, which Michael had a big hand in bringing about, so I knew the time was right to have a conversation with him about it.

Check out the latest episode over at the ThinkRelevance blog!

ThinkRelevance: The Podcast, Episode 004

This time, I interview Aaron Bedra, who has left the company. And yes, we knew he was leaving when we did the podcast, which I think is really cool. I like working at a place where we feel comfortable posting interviews with people who have decided to go work somewhere else.

Check out the episode here.
