EE Developer Conversation

EE add-on developers Eric Lamb and Ben Croker have a message and some audio for you to listen to. They sat down on Skype, hit the Record button, and shared their thoughts about EECI and EE add-on development.

Hello EE folks,

Eric Lamb and Ben Croker here. Today we’re doing a bit of an experiment that we want to share with the community. From time to time the two of us talk over Skype about EE development, programming in general, and the industry as a whole (among other things). One day Ben came up with the idea to record our discussions with the idea being that we’d release a test to see if there’s any interest in the things 2 developers discuss. This is the result.

Now, this is just a discussion between 2 programmers about topics in the ExpressionEngine ecosystem. There are zero production values, don’t expect any theme music, an introduction, or even any sign off talk. To be frank, it is quite raw. Still, we think it’ll be interesting and entertaining at the least and show the perspective of two add-on developers when it comes to ExpressionEngine.

Lastly, we’d like to thank Ryan Irelan for allowing us to publish this on EE Insider and Lea Alcantara and Emily Lewis for giving us their blessing on this experiment.

Thank you and we hope you enjoy it.

well as we said, and as you could probably make out from the minimal amount of editing, this really was just an experiment. if there’s enough interest then we’ll definitely consider doing some follow-ups!!

Thanks guys! That was an interesting conversation. And I really like the rawness of it. Please go on with it!
