Xebia KnowledgeCast Reboot

Laurens Bonnema

Podcasts are a passion of mine. I love to listen to them, and I love to create them. But, not unlike writing, what I love even more is thinking about creating podcasts. I'm a natural born procrastinator, but I'm recovering. That is why I've volunteered to reboot the Xebia Podcast by Serge Beaumont and Robert van Loghem.

The Xebia KnowledgeCast will be a bi-weekly podcast about software architecture, software development, lean/agile, continuous delivery, and big data. Also, we'll have some fun with stickies!

In this first episode, Guido Schoonheim explains why he has high hopes for the Xebia KnowledgeCast Reboot, before sending me off in search of content.

Then, Jacqueline Evers shares her views on work-life balance. For some reason, a lot of lean/agile coaches seem to suffer from a lack of it. Why is that? And what can you do about it?

Third up is our first regular section in the Xebia KnowledgeCast: Fun With Stickies by Serge Beaumont. In this episode, Serge talks about the ISAS acronym he uses when coaching lean/agile teams. The acronym stands for Identity, Stability, Autonomy, and Scientific.

Then, DevOps guru Mark van Holsteijn explains the gist of his session on On Demand Infrastructures For Continuous Delivery. According to Mark, we need those infrastructures for something like DevOps to really succeed.

Finally, Olav Maassen shares some information about his new book "Commitment," a graphic novel about Real Options he wrote with Chris Matts and Chris Geary.

The feed is currently being vetted by Apple. Within a few days you'll probably be able to find the XKC in iTunes and other podcast directories. Can't wait? Get the feed now!

Your feedback is appreciated. Please leave your comments in the shownotes. Better yet, use the FiRe field recording app from Audiofile Engineering to send in a voicemessage as an aiff, wav, or flac file so we can put you ON the show!

The jingles used in the Xebia KnowledgeCast are made by audionautix.com.

All interviews are recorded in double mono with a Marantz Pro PMD661 recorder using an AKG D230 dynamic mic or a Rode NTG2 condenser mic on a boompole resulting in a 96.0 kHz, 24-bit wav file. The fun with stickies section is recorded using the FiRe field recording app from Audiofile Engineering and transferred through SoundCloud.

Post production is done on a Macbook Pro using LogicPro with a light voice over filter resulting in a 44.1 kHz, 16-bit mp3 file.

    Nice to see another computer engineering podcast! (I was starting to get tired of "Illegal Argument" and "Unsupported Operation" ...)
    I hope you also listen to the recent http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2013/05/31/187374157/episode-462-when-patents-hit-the-podcast ...
