Technical Podcasts

If there is something the web as surely changed, it was the way that software engineers need to work. It is now a crucial aspect of our work to be able draw from the huge internet knowledge base out there in an efficient way to get to the right answers. Part of that information extraction is related to the keeping-up-to-date effort that every developer is required to accomplish to continue to be productive. While previous a software engineer could rely mostly on print material, nowadays we need to rely as well on content available on the net. Podcasts are such a source that can bring an amazing amount of information to the mix of knowledge one needs these days. If you are a software engineer and have not jumped into the podcast wagon yet, I suggest you do so. Here is a list some technical podcasts that we hear at Tizra:
  • The Java Posse: a fantastic podcast on Java development. Containing news info update, analysis of tools, overall software development discussions.
  • Software as She Developed: pretty interesting podcast on software development. The author Michael Mahemoff is the author of the Ajax Design Patterns book so you can expect this podcast to bring in a good amount of that experience.
  • Audible Ajax: name says all, a really good podcast on Ajax.
  • Software Engineering Radio: good presentations on software engineering in general. Covering topics like agile development, SOA, development processes, etc.
  • Javapolis: one of the best Java conferences around. You can find podcast feeds for some of the presentations in here. A free way to "be" at the conference.
  • TalkCrunch: a really interesting podcast on web 2.0 companies.
  • Venture Voice: talks and discussions on entrepreneurship.
  • PodTech's Entrepreneurship Podcast: talks and discussions on entrepeneurship.
And the list will keep growing....

New Mobile-Optimized Template Simplifies Site Design

Pre-designed templates are increasingly popular as a quick way to get new Tizra sites launched, or to refresh the design of an existing site.  A key driver in both cases is keeping up with increasingly high user expectations for ease of use and visual appeal, particularly on mobile devices. To address these needs, we’ve released a major upgrade to our Bootstrap-based responsive design template. The new version makes it much easier to customize with your own colors and logo, improves mobile interaction with the latest version of the Bootstrap framework, and adds numerous other visual and usability refinements.

Existing Tizra customers can try it out now by selecting the “Bootstrap Responsive Template” in the PRESENTATION area. Or if you’d like to see a quick preview, take a look at this demo site… https://abedemo.tizrapublisher.com
