Episode 28: c2c-programming? – Hadoop , Django , Scala, Tornado : A programming heavy session

Atom starts off by filing his Hadoop world report and then we launch into a discussion of Django, Tornado and how functional programming is probably the messiah that will lead us as we transition to the realtime web. Finally we talk about what all of this means for life science developers.

[Recorded on October 4th 2009]

Episode 27 : After a Hiatus

We emerge from an hiatus with a programming heavy chat: Deepak and Hari start off discussing Haris recent programming experiences as he wrote an app to create protein crystallization grids. Are we there yet?- We discus Rich Hickeys talk at the recently concluded JVM language summit  and slide further into other things code and coding. Finally we discus Greg Petskos recent commentary about Twitter in Genome Biology.

Episode 21 : Interview with Ricardo Vidal , a triple time zone pajama party

We have missed recording c2cbio the last few weeks but we are happy to be finally interviewing Ricardo Vidal.  Apart from blogging on his My Biotech Life blog , Ricardo recently started as “community liason” at Mendeley. We talk about  Mendeley, the social aspects of sharing and tracking what we are reading and whats on the horizon for the platform . We then go onto chat about the usual c2cbio mix , synthetic biology , science blogging in a post-twitter  world, how blogging still opens doors and other things online-science.
