Audible Ajax Episode 22: Joe Hewitt on Firebug, Firefox, and iUI

Category: Firefox, Interview, iPhone, Podcasts, Utility

This is Joe Hewitt week. We were fortunate enough to find some time to chat with Joe about a myriad of topics.

These topics ranged from:

  • Firebug: How Firebug came about, tips and tricks and hidden toys, and YSlow
  • Browsers: We had a fun chat about the history of Firefox, and how Gecko and Webkit compare these days
  • iPhone: How Joe got interested in mobile development when he never had done before
  • Misc: We also explored topics such as JavaScript 2, and how you can turn yourself into a 24 hour coding machine.

I had a really good time chatting with Joe. He is a solid bloke, and we all give him a hand for giving us Firebug.

Go ahead and listen to the interview or subscribe to the podcast.

Who would you like us to interview for upcoming shows?

How about an interview with Nate Koechley from Yahoo about the new YUI?

Nice! Thanks for this. Keep the podcasts coming, Dion, these are great …it’s awesome to hear his insights from the titans of Ajax development, like Joe Hewitt, in this format. (Firebug is great… I’m loving experimenting with iUI as well:

as always, thoses damn podcasts are not text translated.

As a result my deafness don’t allow me to be aware of anything he has to say.

Why the hell do we read *everyday* *everywhere *some “tips” to improve accessibility to blind people and even to ppl with a disablity but not mine… WHY ?

pfff: Thanks for the feedback. Yours is the first request we’ve received about the accessibility of our podcasts. I’ll see what we can do about transcription. We’ve actually experimented with this in the past, but frankly we don’t have time to transcribe the casts and the two services we’ve tried generated a ton of serious typos and required a lot of clean-up.

But, now that I know some folks are feeling excluded, we may decide that faulty transcripts are better than none.

I’m not normally into podcasts but I must admit I really liked this one because of all the Firefox+Firebug insight. Keep up the great interviews!

ps. where are all the other women doing ajax code?!
I dabble with dhtml and such but virtually no ajax skills.
I need role models!

Thanks for the webcast. Unfortunately the levels are way off – I have to turn the sound way up to hear the voices, and then when you guys laugh it’s so loud it blasts my eardrums. I don’t know much about audio production, but maybe you could even out these loud bits somehow?
