Carl & Richard talk to Rocky Lhotka about the latest incarnation of CSLA - version 4.5.5. The conversation starts out with a thorough refresher on CSLA, building business objects in portable, maintainable ways. Really portable - the objects even on run on phones! Rocky talks about making CSLA run on Android phones via Xamarin, but not on iOS - because of specific Apple rules. The conversation also dives into CSLA on tablets and tablets in the enterprise in general. It's a cool time to be a developer!

While at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, Carl and Richard sat down with Todd Morrison to talk about his experiences building sophisticated media apps using HTML, CSS and Javascript. The conversation starts out on HBO2Go, a Vertigo project to provide a 'second screen' experience around HBO on the XBox. From there, Todd digs into the continued evolution of web technologies, how responsive web design goes beyond dealing with different screen sizes and into different input options like touch and gesture, as well as screen distances - how does the ten-foot experience of the XBox change your interaction with the application? Lots of great thinking from someone at the leading edge of web apps!

Carl and Richard talk to Greg Shackles about his experiences building Olo - an online ordering platform for restaurants. Greg starts the conversation talking about the decision to move from a different mobile platform over to Xamarin so that they could provide support for the largest diversity of devices with the largest common code base. The conversation also digs into MvvmCross, a library for utilizing the MVVM pattern across multiple platforms - Greg takes advantage of MvvmCross to minimize the amount of unique code for each platform. Great case study of the potential of Xamarin!

Carl and Richard talk to Jacob Rossi from the Internet Explorer team about his experiences helping to develop HTML standards like Pointer Events. Jacob talks about how the HTML standards continue to evolve to deal with the changes in computing, including the diversification of input devices - how do you deal with mouse, pen, touch and gesture in a uniform way, while also taking advantage of the distinctive capabilities of each input method? The conversation digs into how the various browser makers, including Chrome and Mozilla (Firefox) work together to develop these standards, creating implementations in the browsers to test in the field, and then carry the learnings back to the group. We may only hear about how they compete in the market, but at the same time, they all work together to make the web a better place!

Carl and Richard talk to Justin Esgar about everything that goes into building a successful mobile app - not just development! Justin talks about his experiences building a variety of different mobile apps, mostly on the iOS platform. He digs into the challenges of getting a good idea together, outsourcing various services (including development), how to get your app accepted in the AppStore, how to actually market your app effectively, and what success looks like. Much of what Justin has done is in his book Appitalize on Your Idea, links in the show notes!

Domenic talks about the challenges of the 1.0 version of WinJS, working around testing limitations, and the open source libraries that Barnes and Noble built to solve the problems. And then the conversation digs deep into the next generation of HTML - Domenic talks about dynamic elements and how HTML continues to evolve. Great thinking about how to keep HTML technology moving forward!

At the Portland stop of the ModernApps2013 road trip, Carl and Richard talked to Shawn Wildermuth about his experiences building mobile apps across multiple platform (iOS, Android, Windows). Shawn talks about the advantages and disadvantages of straight native development, native development with tools like Xamarin, and hybrid development with PhoneGap/Cordoba/Icenium. Having customers with every solution, Shawn digs into the nitty gritty details of each development approach. There's no one right way!

The conversation starts out with an explanation of Microsoft LightSwitch, which is part of Visual Studio and focuses on making data-over-forms apps really easy to build. Beth digs into how LightSwitch creates HTML 5 clients and now has an option to create a responsive web design client using jQuery mobile, so that you can automatically make great mobile clients for your apps. The conversation digs into a variety of cool features of LightSwitch, including its ability to work with Azure, SharePoint, Office 365 and more!
