Weekly show from a couple of people in Toronto.

The 416 Show – Episode 24: We’re Talking About iOS9!

Welcome back to another episode of the show! This week we cover two very different topics; iOS9 and what work is going to look like in 10-20 years.

We have our first real piece of follow up from last week’s episode, Chris gives his initial thoughts on iOS9. Nael and Chris get there wires crossed when talking about certain features.

We then get into a pretty long conversation about work, should we get more time off? What will happen when robot’s are doing all our jobs for us and we completely mess up the ending of the show (it turns out pretty hilariously in the end so lol!)

Thanks so much for listening and stay tuned for more episodes!

The 416 Show – Episode 23: Would You Like to Play a Game?

This week’s episode of the show is almost 100% focused on the big September 9, 2015 Apple Event!

But before that, we cover a couple of quick bits of follow up. Including Nael’s recent Bocci and Kube experiences and Chris had a bit of a brain fart last episode that he get’s to make up for.

For our main topic we cover all the big topics, Apple TV, iPad Pro and the new iPhone 6S. We ponder the pencil, wonder why certain features have taken so long to make it to various products, agree that the Mac will never get a touch screen and Nael convinces Chris (sorta, kinda) that Siri will in fact come to the Mac!

Thanks so much for listening and stay tuned for more episodes!

The 416 Show – Episode 22: Summer Vacation is Over!

Summer vacation is over and Chris and Nael are back!

This summer turned out to be an especially busy one for both of us, hence the 2 month break. But we are back for the fall with our summer vacation recap!

So a couple of big things happened this summer. Chris got married and Nael found himself a new job. Pretty big life events for both of us, so we hope your still subscribed and ready for more new episodes!

I also goes on a bit of a tangent about my meditation habit and how it’s progressed over the last year or so. If your in to meditation you might like this portion of the show.

Thanks so much for listening and stay tuned for more episodes!

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.

The 416 Show – Episode 19: Listen, The Internet’s In Beta

On this week’s episode of the show Chris is joined by Drew Minns! Drew is an instructor at HackerYou here in Toronto, husband and an all around smart guy!

We talk about education, being senior developers and what that means to us as creators as well as covering topics like productivity, time management and mentoring. The type and style of teaching that Drew does at HackerYou, and Drew even asks Chris a few questions (which Chris may not have been expecting!)

Near the end of the episode we get into some meta topics around being a developer, a topic that I am particularily intersted in.

Big thanks to Drew for joining me this week, go let him know how much you liked it on twitter!

This weeks episode almost didn’t happen. If not for the last minute save by Jason Little it might have just been Chris talking to himself for an hour, probably not all that compelling :)

Hope you enjoy this episode!
