The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

In our 13th show, I interview Delphi Product Manager Nick Hodges on the future of the Delphi programming framework, how its new corporate owners are treating it and get answers to listener questions about Delphi.

I offer a startup tip: How 2009 is going to be the year you (yes you!) create video as easily as you email customers, Pat’s tip this week is don’t forget about Visual C++ for native code applications and Pat has two good email tools for startups using Windows.

  1. Hi Guys

    Love the concept, but I have real trouble getting a FULL episode. When I am downloading it, it is extremely slow (4KB/s). Get some decent hosting please.

    Also, a visible rss/atom feed link somewhere would be nice (not all of us want to have the pile of crud that is iTunes installed).

    Keeps the shows coming🙂

    Regards

    Scott

  3. Hi Bob. Good interview. Bummer you guys threw in a Visual C++ advertisement right after the interview, though!

    • Pat’s tip was less an advertisement and more a tip to windows developers who may have tuned in to hear Nick.

  4. Bob is correct that I wanted to make sure existing .NET developers who happen to already know C++ don’t forget that they have access to a tool that does native code as part of the msdn subscription they already have. It was kind of a personal reminder – sometimes I forget that C++ is still a viable option.

    That said, J.D. makes a valid point – it was somewhat obnoxious. I tried to make up for it by mentioning a Delphi app in the tool that followed, but that’s still pushing it. In the future I will avoid highlighting a Microsoft product that clearly competes with the product a guest just talked about unless I’m discussing it with the guest. To do otherwise is a bit rude.

    That reasoning informed my thinking for the interview with the Adobe evangelist – I’m not going to pitch Silverlight on that show (instead I asked the Adobe evangelist to give his thoughts on Silverlight).

    Point taken.
