Planet Argon Podcast, Episode 3: How We Manage Bugs

Posted by Wed, 11 Nov 2009 16:46:00 GMT

Earlier this week, we published Episode 3 of the Planet Argon Podcast. In this latest episode we responded to one of the ideas someone in the audience asked on this brainstormr, which was, “How do you manage bugs?”

We had a round table discussion about how we classify and prioritize bugs with our clients, ticketing systems, and other tools that we use to streamline this process.

You can listen to this on iTunes or online.

Planet Argon Podcast, Episode 2: The Letter Scotch

Posted by Fri, 30 Oct 2009 12:27:00 GMT

Earlier this week our new podcast was approved and is now available in the Apple iTunes Store. We’re also soliciting topic ideas for future episodes on brainstormr.

We posted Episode 2, The Letter Scotch, yesterday for your enjoyment. In this episode, we covered a handful of web browser tools that we use (and detest) to debug HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This included Web Inspector, Firebug, DebugBar, and a handful of other tools. We all have slightly different preferences, depending on the tasks that we’re working on and the team had an open dialogue about the pros/cons of each of these tools.

Bob Zurek, the Chief Technology Officer at EnterpriseDB interviewed me a few months ago for their new Database Radio podcast. It finally was published last week.
