Tom and Jim Podcast #1


  • Possibly we could write an article on one of the 'W' frameworks: WPF, WCF or WF.
  • The article definitely won't be what Anders would write, but it will have a viewpoint of an experienced developer handling the confusion of using a new technology.
  • There are other technologies we could look at: Adobe Air, Ruby on Rails or even the new development environment for the Apple iPhone.
  • Maybe we should take Joel's advice and learn C?
  • Software development gotchas are sometimes like an Indiana Jones booby trap.
  • A hardware profile idea that could be used to predict and report code performance before it even runs.
  • On development tools for the best developers in the world vs. the rest of us.
  • The best way to avoid negative feedback from users.
  • Home-grown software development advances vs. infrastructure enhancements.
  • C Flashbacks: K&R is a 274 page book and will take more than 2 hours to master.
  • The SuperKid scenario: taking on Web development, of course, he would build a social application.
  • Evaluating Ruby on Rails vs. vs. SilverLight...
  • Everybody's object-oriented...
  • Tom wants a certain kind of app to 'win'...
  • Keeping it managed vs conceding interop...
  • What level of OOP mastery is really necessary...
  • Tom's appalling sort/search solution...
  • Coveting the 'AI' nugget...
  • One Visual Studio to rule them all.
  • Tom and Jim judged unfit by the Java developer...
  • Shaking the test-driven trees...
  • Ironman and your favorite productivity tool.
  • iTunes movie experience.
  • More internet beer for Chris Maunder?

About the Authors

Tom Ollar
CEO Sagerion, LLC
United States United States
I read About Face by Alan Cooper in 1995 and immediately recognized it as a founding document for the future of software. I also recognized we had a long, long way to go - and yes, even with the advent of iOS, we are still not there yet.

At my company, Sagerion (say-jair-ee-on), we can take a look at your planned or existing software and suggest ways of making it better - lots better. We can develop down-to-the-pixel blueprints showing exactly what our suggestions mean. We can help manage on-going development to make sure the top-notch user-experience we've suggested really does get built. Now, honestly, how often have you ever seen all those things happen?

You may or may not already have great development going on - but what does that matter if you don't have great design driving it?

Feel free to contact me at, I would love to hear about your next ground-breaking project.
