  1. Stacey Mulcahy Takes us Behind the Scenes at Workshops | Ladies in Tech

    Ever wonder what it’s like to run a workshop? Speaking all day comes with a new set of rewards and challenges, find out more about those as Stacey Mulcahy joins us on the podcast. We’ll talk about how public speaking differs between all day workshops versus an hour-long talk. We’ll also talk about what makes a workshop successful, how to plan one, and how to come up with topics to speak about.

    Stacey Mulcahy is a Microsoft Technology Evangelist for Windows 8. She’s also really into physical computing – working with the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBoard and the Arduino.

    Stacey has spoken at over 45 events on a variety of topics that range from technical to workflow and process. Stacey has spoken at conferences like FITC in Toronto, Vancouver and Amsterdam, Reasons to be Creative, and Halifax Pop Explosion.

  3. 110: With Julie Ann Horvath - ShopTalk

    This week we were joined by Julie Ann Horvath, designer and developer for &yet. Julie has recently been the subject of tech news headlines because of her public resignation from her previous employer (Github) due to sexism and harassment. It’s a heavy and traumatic topic, but we’re thankful to Julie for sharing her experience so we can grow as a community and prevent these types of unfortunate events in the future.

    We talked about (roughly in order):

    5:15 Story behind Julie’s GitHub exit (Full Story: TechCrunch)

    News’n’Links’n’Drama:

    28:37 Brendan Eich resigns as Mozilla Corporation CEO

    Note: Within minutes of wrapping this episode, Brendan Eich stepped down as CEO.

    Q & A:

    38:09 Do you have any advice on where to look for jobs where an experienced front-end developer could learn from their co-workers and be challenged?

    46:52 Since there are a lot of web development languages to learn and many developers know the usual HTML, CSS and Javascript. Which language would you say is a niche market to learn for hire?

    50:48 I feel like I may have too much on my plate for the year: should I ask my team for more help?

  4. Rupal Patel: Synthetic voices, as unique as fingerprints | Video on TED.com

    Many of those with severe speech disorders use a computerized device to communicate. Yet they choose between only a few voice options. That’s why Stephen Hawking has an American accent, and why many people end up with the same voice, often to incongruous effect. Speech scientist Rupal Patel wanted to do something about this, and in this wonderful talk she shares her work to engineer unique voices for the voiceless.

  10. David Weinberger on knowledge

    David Weinberger, senior researcher at Harvard Law’s Berkman Center for the Internet & Society and Co-Director of the Harvard Library Innovation Lab at Harvard Law School, discusses his new book entitled, “Too Big to Know: Rethinking Knowledge Now That the Facts Aren’t the Facts, Experts Are Everywhere, and the Smartest Person in the Room Is the Room.” According to Weinberger, knowledge in the Western world is taking on properties of its new medium, the Internet. He discusses how he believes the transformation from paper medium to Internet medium changes the shape of knowledge. Weinberger goes on to discuss how gathering knowledge is different and more effective, using hyperlinks as an example of a speedy way to obtain more information on a topic. Weinberger then talks about how the web serves as the “room,” where knowledge seekers are plugged into a network of experts who disagree and critique one another. He also addresses how he believes the web has a way of filtering itself, steering one toward information that is valuable.
