.NET Rocks!

Blasphemy, I know. You might be thinking that I meant to title this post, “.NET Sucks!”, right? Sorry to disappoint my Java loving co-workers. Of course, I’m not speaking about .NET, but the excellent podcast by the name of .NET Rocks! I have yet to find another developer focused podcast so informative and entertaining. The amazing thing about .NET Rocks! to me is that it spends quite a bit of time covering topics like Open Source software and agile software development that some would consider anti-Microsoft. It gets even better when Richard Campbell and Carl Franklin discuss topics like SOA (and what it’s really about), Enterprise Architecture, Version Control and CI, or being “Code Complete” with Steve McConnell. Each of those individual episodes I reference are highly recommended listens, especially the SOA and Enterprise Architecture ones.

  • I can’t speak to .Net Rocks! but I do listen to The Java Posse podcast (http://www.javaposse.com/). I find it to be informative, up-to-date, and very entertaining. The hosts are very passionate about all things Java.
    I will make it a point to check out the .Net Rocks! podcast – I’m always looking to learn new things.
