Creating a podcast does need a lot of work to be done before getting a good result.
When I saw the podcast from James Robertson about interfacing “VisualWorks” to “snarl” – an open source notification system, I thought, that I wanted to have that under VASmalltalk, too.
But I do not want to have the network API, but the Windows-only solution – just because I do not want to have open sockets and firewall problems. The network API is much easier than the Windows-API only solution – all this (external) memory management – ugly.
It was also a reason to create a first podcast – and to do the first steps.
I hope, that you enjoy it – and please send me tips to make podcasts better or what you would like to hear about VASmalltalk.
