Enterprise Geeks Podcast – Post SAPPHIRE Cooldown

 

Although Van Halen rocked the last night of SAPPHIRE, it was the developer license announcement earlier that day which stole the show

Season 4 Episode 14

Its taken us a little while after SAPPHIRE to get our schedules to align enough to be able to record a podcast, but in this episode we look back at the event and share some of our experiences. Keep in mind we aren’t the typical attendees, since both Craig and I worked extended times on the show floor pods.  We therefore share some of the common questions we were hearing from attendees.

Craig also breaks down the new Developer License which was announced at SAPPHIRE. Finally free, perpetual click-through developer licenses – something many in the development community have been requesting for a long time.

As we prepare for a summer break we also look ahead to upcoming events over the summer (like the fact that Rich, Craig and I will all be in Walldorf at the end of June) and even preparations for TechEd. Believe it or not, we are already in full content creation mode for TechEd and we have some amazing new content already being cooked up.

Enterprise Geeks Podcast – Code Jam and SAPPHIRE/ASUG Annual Conference Prep

We are ready to rock to Van Halen at SAPPHIRE in our kilts

Season 4 Episode 13

Its luck episode number 13 of season 4 — if only we could have done the recording last Friday the 13th.  After several weeks of travel, we finally got most of the gang together to record a podcast.  We discuss the SAP Database and Mobility press conference from the previous week as well as upcoming plans for SAPPHIRE/ASUG Annual Conference. Craig also announces the new Code Jam events and talks about his vision for where this series of events will be headed.

Enterprise Geeks Podcast – Before We Hit The Road Edition

After what Craig saw at CeBIT, could thought controlled gaming be right around the corner?

Season 4 Episode 12

After a couple of weeks off our podcast schedule we return to record again before several of us hit a bad travel schedule.  We hit major topics around the iPad 3 announcement, Win8 preview, and CeBIT conference. If you want a little more SAP centric topics, don’t worry. Over the next few weeks Craig and I will be recording podcasts from DKOM and Mastering SAP Technologies which promise to just be dripping with SAP only content.

Enterprise Geeks Podcast – Programmers’ Valentines

If that doesn’t say “I Love You”, I don’t know what does

Season 4 Episode 11

Warning: After several weeks of no technical problems with Pamela Call Recorder for Skype, the software has decided to go crazy once again. This podcast contains a slight skipping echo on my voice only. Unfortunately since Craig couldn’t join us this week, we didn’t get a backup recording and must post with this technical problem.  I apologize for the technical snafu but figured the only other alternative was to not post at all this week.  If anyone has suggestions how to fix this in Pamela, I’m certainly listening.

Enterprise Geeks Podcast – Moon Men and Magic Bullets

And that’s about as political as we get…

Season 4 Episode 10

We have  a wide range of topics this week as we come about as close to political as we care to when we discuss Newt Gingrich and his plans to establish a permanent moon base.  We also talk about new self guided bullets and what it must be like to write software for them.  There’s also the little matter of the Facebook IPO and the big news that Craig is now back working for SAP.

That’s one path to Geek Fitness

Season 4 Episode 9

In the spirit of New Years’ resolutions, we focus on the hot topic of how fellow eGeeks can get/stay in shape. Dan and I share some of our tips as well as some of the tools we use.  Please feel free to share your own tips in the comment section.

Craig also found an interesting article from mid-2011 which talks about the top gadgets of the year so far.  We use the power of hindsight to comment on (ridicule) these top choices.
