What's Going On with the NetBeans Podcast?

You might have been wondering what's up with the monthly NetBeans Podcast. My co-presenter and brilliant technical podcasting guru (who can record & edit great quality podcasts in his sleep), Lloyd Dunn, is no longer working at Sun. Therefore, in the absence of Lloyd, who also owned the recording equipment, I'm not able to produce any more podcasts, until we find an alternative mechanism for (1) creating podcasts and (2) editing them.

I've been told that the NetBeans Podcasts are considered valuable to NetBeans, and to Sun, and that alternative options are being considered. So... the podcast will be back! It's just out of action for a bit while we reshuffle things. (Probably Lukas Hasik will be the new co-presenter!) In the meantime, you can listen to the previous editions here. Interestingly, there have been 49 episodes so far. The 50th, newly constituted, will certainly be an interesting one. If/when it happens, Roman Strobl, who originally started the concept in NetBeans, will definitely be invited for an interview!


For the JavaPosse we use very cheap "recording equipment" -- we use $30 USB headsets to record our own feeds while we talk on Skype, and then mix the individual feeds with the free and excellent Audacity. (Live recordings are a different matter...)

recording equipment isn't problem but the mixing and post processing to get the best quality from the recordings. And the NBpodcast is divided to several sections that are recorded separately. Thah makes this task even more difficult...

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
