A Talk with Bruce Badger: Podcast

March 21, 2010 12:00:05.045

This week Michael and I spoke to Bruce Badger - long time open source contributor to the Smalltalk community. He's the author of the widely used PostgreSQL database driver and of the PDF document library. If you listen to the podcast, you'll also learn what other projects Bruce has up his sleeve.

We spoke a bit about the OpenSkills project, and about open source licensing - what license Bruce uses for his code and why. We also covered Sport - Bruce's cross dialect portability library, and what Bruce would like to see happen in that direction. It was a fun talk, and we'd love to get Bruce back on the podcast again.
