Sorry for the late notice, gang. Since I run the techcast and I'm consumed with various education admin / teaching responsibilities this week, we're going to take a break for one week. We will resume next week, and will also start pushing some ETE podcasts as well. Stay tuned, and as always, thanks for listening to the techcast!

We held an open podcast on the evening of April 8th at the happy hour reception of the 2010 Philly Emerging Tech show. I had invited James Ward and Michael Cote to sit with me, and see what developed. Well, beyond the happy hour food and beer, which flowed freely, so did the conversation. Adam Coombs from Infegy sat down with us, and later Ed Burns from Oracle joined the table.
We had a great time with a wide ranging conversation. I hope you enjoy it.
Standard disclaimer for a live broadcast: Of course, the opinions expressed are our own, influenced by food and beer, and not those of our employers...

Chariot TechCast ETE Podcast #2 - the Web Framework Shootout of 2010
Our last web framework shootout at ETE was in 2008, and we felt it was high time for another meetup. Since then, Rails and Merb have merged, JSF 2.0 was released, Grails has become more mature, Spring has moved into annotation-driven configuration in a big way, and there are still a ton of choices for an architect to make when choosing a web framework.
This year the shootout is led by Robert Hanson, author of Manning's GWT In Action, who was a speaker on last year's podcast. This is a Not Safe For Work download, as it involves some cursing and stronger statements, but overall it's no worse than you'll hear when meeting up with a few of these guys at a bar.
Speakers in this shootout include, in no particular order:
Music for the podcast was performed by Chariot's Andrew Oswald.

Chariot Solutions TechCast - ETE 2010 Conference Session #1 - Keynote Session from Michael Coté, analyst from RedMonk
I first ran into Michael Coté's work back in 2008 when we put together the Chariot Cloud Con East conference. Among the many grandstanding blogs about cloud computing at the time, RedMonk was a place we could go to read about emerging trends, such as Platform as a Service and Software as a Service.
