Thinking in Code:
Bruce Eckel Interviews Software Luminaries
Creative Commons License ©2006 MindView, Inc.

This is a series of interviews that I did, many a few years back, before podcasting became commonplace. My original intent was to turn them into a CD, but I had a few release issues and it got put on the back burner and forgotten for awhile.

In the meantime, podcasting got big and more people got fast bandwidth, so I finally just decided to release them for download. Although they are a few years old, the material is fairly timeless.
