Building Accessible Websites on a Podcast with Brian Hogan
JAMISON: Hello, friends.
CHUCK: Merrick Christensen.
CHUCK: I’m Charles Max Wood from Devchat.tv and this week, we have a special guest and that’s Zach Kessin.
ZACH: Hey everybody.
CHUCK: Did I say your name right, Zach?
ZACH: Yep, you got it right.
ZACH: Oh, okay. So yeah, I’m Zach Kessin. I’ve been a software developer for close to 20 years, on the web, close to 20 years now. My first web app in PHP version -- oh, not PHP, in Perl version 4 with mSQL, because MySQL didn’t exist yet. That was, like, 1994. And let’s see, I’ve been doing web applications ever since. Worked in Boston area, in London and then in Israel for about 10 years now. I’m also the author of ‘Programming HTML5 Applications’ and ‘Building Web Applications with Erlang’, both published by O’Reilly. And my interests include functional programming, code generation and concurrency in Erlang. So, well, that’s a different show. That’s sort of my background. And I work at a small Tel Aviv startup called Product Structure that we build [inaudible] components and workflows that will be self-optimizing on your website. So, that’s what we’re doing. We’re launching it soon.
MERRICK: Very cool.
CHUCK: You just launched your own podcast, didn’t you?
ZACH: Yeah. I just launched my own podcast called ‘Mostly Erlang’. It’s going to cover Erlang and occasionally other functional languages like Haskell and OCML. We had our first, we recorded our first episode last week. And the first episode is called ‘Building Skynet’. And the second episode will be on the Webmachine framework, which is an HTTP framework, backend framework though, to do semantically correct Webmachine.
