Episode 13: Dealing with the Press

While in Boston I had the chance to talk with Sally Khudairi. She drew on her large range of experience working with the press to provide some practical advice for individuals and projects to assist with their press interactions. An interesting listen for everyone involved with an open source project.

Episode 12: Ken Coar Lightning Talk

Resuming the posting of Lightning Talks from ApacheCon Europe, here’s one that a number of you have requested. It loses quite a bit to just have the audio and not see it, but it’s till quite fascinating. There’s just one in this episode, since it ran just a little long, and I didn’t want to edit anything out. You can see more of it in Noirin’s ApacheCon photos.

Here it is, roughly 8 minutes.

Episode 11: Axis2

While at ApacheCon Asia last month, I had the opportunity to speak with Rajith Attapattu about Axis2. He had just given a presentation about it, and I had a few questions about how things all fit together. Axis2 is the hub of the web services projects, with various other products plugging into Axis2 to provide various services.

The interview is HERE and is about 13 minutes long.

Finally, a reminder that we’re going to be at ApacheCon, and you should too.

Episode 10: Austin Preview

With just over a month before ApacheCon US starts we bring you a preview of Austin. We were lucky to talk with Jeff Loukas who gives us a flavour of what to expect. He has also written a short guide to Austin with even more information! Thanks jeff!

We look forward to seeing everyone in Austin!

Topics for Discussion?

One of the things we’d like to try at ApacheCon US is getting people together for some “table discussions”. Essentially we’d like to get people in the know about a topic together, sitting at a table and ask them to discuss a topic! Hardly an original idea, but as the discussions are usually lively at ApacheCon it could prove interesting!

While we can come up with a few topics, anyone care to suggest topics they’d like to hear discussed? If you have thoughts about who you’d like to have involved in the discussion you can include their names in the posting and we’ll see what we can do.

Why not post a comment with your ideas now?

Feathercast Merchandise

Now that we have a new logo and a new look, we also have some feathercast merchandise available via CafePress. The main aim of feathercast is educational, not profit, but money made from the sale of the items will allow us to improve our equipment. Hopefully this will lead to better quality podcasts!

We will also be donating some of the money we make from selling items to the Apache Software Foundation.

Why not go and have a look at our store now?
