In this episode of Herding Code, the gang talks about what happened last year and what they think will happen in the years to come.  Oh, and K Scott brings us the first lightning round of 2010!

  • How will the guys manage the show in 2010?  Google Docs and listener requests?
  • Are you bitter because today’s coder has little appreciation for how rough devs had it 10 years ago?
  • Phone wars. Big, smart ones. Will Android dethrone the iPhone?
  • Place your bets!  Biggest box office hit in 2010: Ironman 2 or The A-Team Movie?
  • You don’t see the Fail Whale quite as often, but it’s still fun to listen to the guys continue to complain about Twitter and its clients.
  • Next ten years – will C# continue to rule the .NET roost?
  • Ever ask WolframAlpha “Who uses this site?”
  • What secret project is John Lam working on?  Will IronRuby live on?
  • You love maps, right? K Scott does too.   Who knew?
  • Ever wonder if the iSlate will take over the (Kindle) world?
  • Are you planning to improve your skill set in 2010? How?
  • Really? Jon’s default search engine is Bing! How’s about that Infinite Scroll!
