Random Bits
Episode 15 – 01/28/2008
Guest: Jonathan Snook, Snook.ca
Background: Internet Entrepreneur, Developer, Ninja level 5
Total Time: 24 minutes

I was pretty stoked to get to talk to Jonathan Snook this week. Jonathan is author of Accelerated DOM Scripting with Ajax, APIs, and Libraries, and The Art and Science of CSS books. He also publishes columns for Digital Web Magazine, Sitepoint and of course his blog Snook.ca. You can see him this week speaking at Web Directions North on Ajax frameworks.

Once Jonathan and I got talking, it took a lot to get us to shut up so on the negative side, the talk will be split into two, but on the plus side, it was a great conversation. Part 1 is a more technical talk whereas part 2 we talk about the business side of freelancing.

Have a listen and as always, I appreciate your thoughts.

That is my new favorite RB podcast!
We are going to have to make Jonathan a regular on the show. That was too good, but way too short! I want part 2, part 3, part 4…

Jonathan, next time you are in Colorado let me know and I’ll take you out for a few pints. I want to hear more about the differences between the JS libraries. The only one I have used is YUI and I really like it. It’s very powerful and well documented, although huge.

Nice work Sara and thanks Jonathan.
