The 416 – Episode 21: Space Grey Edition

On this week’s episode of the show, I’m joined by iOS game developer and Mozillian Darrin Henein!

Darrin is one half of the team that created the highly addictive and super fun iOS game Lastronaut (well over a million downloads) in his spare time, while spending his days working on the mobile version of Firefox for Android and iOS!

We talk a lot about what it’s like to work on something in your sparce time, how to keep motivated to work on it, how to know when that thing your making is ready to be used by the rest of the world and what’s it’s like to have something exceeed your wildest expectations

Darrin also get’s a little inside baseball with the processes, tools and tricks that Mozilla uses to co-ordinate and manage a large distributed team.

The 416 Show – Episode 20: Accidental Nap Podcast

Nael is back for this week’s episode of the show!

We talk about a range of topics including Ramadan and how Nael is dealing with his coffee addiction while not being able to eat or drink during the day, roman numerals, show titles and various other meanderings.

The main topic of the episode turned out to be productivity, one of Chris’s (and it turns out Nael’s) interests and passions. From personal productivity to productivity at work and the tools we use to try and achieve productivity.

We also touch on last week’s episode of the show where Chris got to talk to Drew Minns, and near the end of the show we discuss the new DevTO Code of Conduct.
