EE Podcast

A very special episode of the EE Podcast is available for your listening pleasure!

For episode 80, Lea and I were at EECI 2012 US! A completely different episode than we've done before, we had a ton of fun with a record 10 guests participating in trivia challenges and interviews.

Episode #80

Our live and uncut episode from EECI is unlike anything we've done before!

We kicked off the show with a trivia challenge between three EECI attendees. Kelly Cook, Jean St. Armand and Aaron Sherrill competed to win a sweet prize pack including a Mijingo title and licenses from Pixel & Tonic and Mithra62.

The middle of our episode features interviews with EECI speakers. Eric Lamb and Ben Croker joined us to discuss add-on development, while Brad Parscale and Ryan Irelan discussed community.

We concluded the live podcast with a trivia Master's Tournament featuring EE pros Chad Crowell, Anna Brown and Michael Boyink who competed for the coveted “EE Master” title, as well as developer licenses from DevDemon and a year of hosting with EngineHosting.

Have a listen yourself!

A Million Thank Yous

If you were at EECI or paying attention to Lea on Twitter before the conference, you know we had a bit of drama: Lea realized at the last minute that her passport was expired. There were about 36 hours when we didn't think she'd be able to make the conference. Thirty-six hours of me freaking out and trying to come up with the resources necessary to pull off a successful podcast without my partner–in–crime.

While Lea ultimately made it to the conference, I wouldn't have been able to keep my sanity during those 36 hours without the incredible people at EECI who offered help and support without question:

  • Ryan Battles, who was 100% ready to help with anything I needed … from pinch-hitting for Lea to doing a speaker interview.
  • Laurie Ruggles, who tolerated my bitching and whining on Sunday night.
  • Ryan Masuga, who helped me come up with potential folks to act as guest co-host.

And a huge thanks to our trivia prize pack sponsors, who (literally at the last minute) chipped in licenses and titles for our trivia challenge winners:

  • Eric Lamb, Mithra62
  • Brad Parscale, DevDemon
  • Nevin Lyne, EngineHosting
  • Brandon Kelly, Pixel & Tonic
  • Ryan Irelan, Mijingo

Stay Tuned!

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
