Oh, hey. A discussion show. Haven’t done one of those for a while. Bonus: recorded during the day so K Scott’s awake.
Download / Listen:
- K Scott asks everyone’s opinions on the GitHub / Ruby on Rails “mass assignment” debacle.
- Everyone talks about mass assignment binding issues in MVC frameworks, including Rails and ASP.NET MVC – is this a security issue in the frameworks, or the web developer’s responsibility?
- Jon says that it’s often tricky to debug negative cases, Kevin says that everything should be secure by default, and Scott K can go either way on it.
- K Scott asks us all who will buy the new new iPad.
- Scott K says it struck him that they were limited in demonstrating it by the projection resolution.
- Kevin wants one.
- Jon thought it was interesting that Retina isn’t a hard DPI spec, it’s driven by the expected distance the device will be from your eyes – can he get a Retina effect by just sitting far from his desktop monitors?
- There’s a discussion about the lack of a version number.
- Jon wonders if that high quality of display will show up on other devices, or if Apple bought all the pixels. Oh, and patents.
- K Scott asks Kevin if Samsung users laugh at him.
- Jon says that’s no longer a issue now that software updates brought 4G to this iPhone… magic!
- Jon mentions Upshot from the ASP.NET Single Page Application framework.
- K Scott talks about Sylvester and Zoomooz.
- Scott K talks about tiny libraries like Zepto, Ender, and the Micro.js list.
- Scott K talks about the difficulty he had in shutting down Windows 8.
- Jon says it’s all about search now… and what’s wrong with hitting the start button to power off?
- Scott K says we’ve been trained for decades not to do that.
- Jon says this is the biggest shift since Windows 95… there’s a lot of learning and unlearning to do.
- What about Visual Studio 11?
- There’s some discussion about the color and design aspects. Should there be color? Metro?
- Jon says at least it’s a lot faster, and he likes the quick search.
- Scott K said it worked fine once he figured out what it was for… and maybe there should be fewer items in the menu to begin with.
- Jon throws out a crazy idea – what about the ribbon interface for Visual Studio and kind of convinces Kevin.
- Scott K says the memory usage is still way too high. Jon asks if that really matters. After some discussion, Scott K says something’s slow in there.
- Oh, hey, the macro recorder’s gone now. Jon actually used that in Visual Studio recently.
- Kevin asks if there’s really no way to customize the install anymore. The gang all agree they don’t want to install stuff like C++ and VSTO. Jon says the blog post says that few people actually customize the installation, but Scott K doesn’t believe it.
- Scott K runs through some fun issues on the Visual Studio UserVoice.
- Kevin put up a bajillion issues on Connect long ago, most are Closed – Won’t Fix.
- Jon talks about a post about 24 bit / 192 khz audio he read. Nobody seems to care all that much.
- Jon asks everyone what they’ve been up to.
- K Scott’s travelling around and working on project that’s Ruby / Mongo on the backend and ASP.NET MVC on the front end. This freaks Kevin out.
- Jon’s been working on ASP.NET MVC / Web API release stuff and hacking on Code52 project late at night.
- Scott K spoke recently at NodePDX on is doing a bunch of crazy stuff at work around deployment.
- Kevin remembers what a DSN is when nobody else does.
- Somebody sneaks in a Sad Trombone. Jon is unable to figure out who is playing tricks and motions to adjourn.
