We’ve started adding transcripts to our podcasts! If you’d like to see this continue, we need your support. The cost of commissioning a transcript is about a dollar a minute, which means for a typical episode we pay between $30-60. Our podcast doesn’t have sponsors like you might see elsewhere, because we’ve decided to focus on communicating as directly as possible with our listeners and readers. So here’s the pitch: pledge at least $1 each podcast, and if enough of you do this to cover at least half the expense of transcription for the podcast episode, we’ll make sure it continues.
Our latest issue is in the shop and online now! Issue 4: Legacy systems focuses on how systems and code change over time, and how we maintain them. In this issue we have tips on how to maintain legacy code bases effectively, a history of the GNOME project and how it relates to urban change, a case study on working with legacy data, and other interesting and informative articles.
