Following this years CITCON ANZ 2009 in Brisbane, Mark sits down with fellow kiwis Nigel Charman and John Hurst to discuss:

  • The transrelational model in databases and database scaling, Sybase requiring stored procedures for metadata, and using unitils to automatically disable constraints during testing.
  • Releasing from branches
  • Jetbrains MPS and the Charisma bugtracker which is now in EAP.
  • Wikis for documentation
  • Python, Delphi, and embedded scripts in databases
  • White space or tabs?
  • CITCON (we actually talk about it!)
  • Token commits, pre-commits, and continuous integration

WARNING: This episode is a long discussion - you might need some coffee.
