I know it's been a while since CFConversations has released an episode - since February 24th, over two months. There are reasons for that, and for those of you that don't know what those reasons are, I've finally blogged about it, so please read it if you're interested. Bottom line, the short version is that I had gastric bypass surgery on 2/27. That entry explains what's been going on, although it may not explain why it's been this long. Thankfully, we're coming back!
Unfortunately, CFConversations went on hiatus, as I recovered from surgery. We had hoped to get a few podcasts out while I recovered, but it didn't work that way. As I have struggled a bit getting everything into my new schedule, the hiatus got extended. I've got more things to do, like working out, now that I'm serious about getting this weight off, but it hasn't left me much time for the podcast. I'm finally starting to figure out a balance, so it's time to return.
Before I went on leave, I recorded two interviews as part of our CFUnited series: One with Lawrence Cramer and the other with Peter Bell, which was recorded before his announcement that he was joining Railo. I haven't gotten them out yet.
Also, I just interviewed Sean Corfield, the latest to join the Railo team. That's going to be released as a three part interview, also part of the CFUnited series. We got through a lot of questions tonight, enough to split the interview into our first three-part episode.
Due to all the recent Railo news, the plan is to release as follows: Episode 31 with Peter Bell and part 1 with Sean as episode 32. The next two episodes I'm going to try to get out by cf.Objective(). I'll get out part 2 and 3 of Sean's interview as well, if I can, but I doubt it will be before the conference. They will probably wait until after cf.Objective(). Once all three parts of Sean's interview are out, I'll release the Lawrence Cramer interview, which would in theory be episode 38, and then any more we get.
At cf.Objective(), we're going to try to do three roundtables: Day 0 (the night before the conference begins, Wednesday night), 1 (Thursday night) and 2 (Friday night). If you are at the conference and would like to join in, you're welcome. Watch me on Twitter and I'll tweet where we'll do it and at what time. We're also planning to get more interviews while at the conference, as many as we can. I'll have a few people helping with interviews, so I hope we'll get quite a few.
So, sorry for the hiatus. I thought it would be 2-3 weeks, but it ended up a LOT longer. We're about to be back and we're coming back strong, better than ever.
