"The lunatics have taken over the asylum," announces Mark Stephens (@JavaPDF) in the NetBeans podcast opening chat. Mark's team at IDR Solutions and NetBeans community members from EPIK (Encouraging Programming in Kids) have taken over this edition of the NetBeans podcast. During JavaOne 2014 in San Francisco, they interviewed a range of developers who use NetBeans in one way or another, focusing on their coding stories and how they use NetBeans IDE.

Emily Hall from EPIK chats with Ken Fogel (@omniprof), about how he got into coding (from a "dead end job working in a mailroom") and became a teacher in software development in Canada. "Can you pick up coding later on in life?" is one of the questions Ken deals with. "Anyone is capable of learning to code at any time," he explains.16:50 / Emily Hall - Conversation with John Ceccarelli, Director of NetBeans Engineering
