Sometimes we need a little process to get the job done. Mike and Chris discuss the challenges of getting things done your own way, while adapting to the needs of the job, or the project. Plus practical advice on building a better workflow can naturally lead to better communication, and setting proper expectations.
On heels of our discussion of burnout Chris and Mike discuss a lead cause of burnout: a lack of focus. For developers, focus can mean a lot different things: raw concentration, choosing a single platform, or sticking with a project even when the grass looks a whole lot greener elsewhere.
Mike and Chris tackle the challenges of burnout, the signs of approaching discontent, the issues that can aggravate it, and what you can do to combat burnout and get back to work. Plus we answer some of your questions, ask if its no big deal that iOS 6 is more evolution than revolution, and much more!
Chris and Mike take a look at joining an open source project, the formerly brown Ubuntu as a developer platform. Dell is getting ready to launch Sputnik, but should you jump on board or take a big old bite of a Macintosh? Plus should the release of the iPhone 5 and the Lumia 920 turn developer heads?
