Mono 2.0 Released

Not that I'm a big .NET fan, but I read through the Mono 2.0 release article at Ars Technica and I'm intruiged. I'm a mac guy, so the 2.0 beta isn't out yet. However, they do have a 780 MB VMWare instance, running OpenSUSE with the Mono 2.0 toolkit installed.

I'm downloading it and will kick a few tires. If I find anything particularly interesting I'll update the blog.

New Podcast episodes online...  DreamIT!

I've published three new podcasts for the Chariot Tech Cast. They are:


  • Snack Feed - these guys are writing a media sharing web application where you can favorite media and view what your friends are watching. Technologies include PHP, MySQL and some Python processing. Interesting approach. Audio Feed Here. Their website is www.snackfeed.com
  • PhrazIt - This team, led by three college sophomores (from MIT and Harvard), is kind of a mini-messaging and voting application all rolled into one. The application is written in PHP. They were recently covered by TechCrunch. Audio Feed Here. Their website is www.phrazit.com.
  • Finally, we spoke to TapInko, a portal for buying and selling physical ad space. This platform is .NET based, and we had a good discussion about application development and the life of a startup. Audio Feed Here. You can visit them at www.tapinko.com.

    Thanks to all of the interviewees and to Chris Cera of Vuzit for setting them up. Coming up next on the podcast is an interview with James Ward of Adobe on Flex and AIR.
