The Mono Project

For our latest podcast, we caught up with some folks from the Mono Project. Miguel de Icaza, who among his many claims to fame is founder of the Mono Project and a Summer of Code mentor and organization administrator for 2005, 2006 & 2007, was joined by three former students for Mono: Aaron Tomb, Alan McGovern and Michael Hutchinson. Check out the podcast to learn more about Mono and the project's plans for SoC this year, as well as news on other Mono Summer of Code projects from 2005 & 2006. You'll also learn more about Aaron's work on defect detection for CIL bytecode, Alan's BitTorrent libraries, and Michael's creation of an ASP.NET project type for MonoDevelop.

Thanks to Aaron, Alan, Michael and Miguel for joining us, and a special thanks to Alan and Michael, both of whom are now mentors for Mono this year!

Thanks for another inetersting podcast in the series. I like the idea of interviewing all those students-turned-mentors. I think that being able to mentor a student is a nice way of giving something back to SoC, and I hope I will have the time to do so in the coming years.

Keep those podcasts coming, Leslie.

I took the time to listen to all of the podcasts (well there's just 3 at the moment :)). I was already positively surprised when Liferea had a play button to play from the feed. The interviews are interesting and motivating. Already hearing the voices of other developers or the organizers was great. Keep them coming :)
