Geek Outs by Carl and Richard

 The guys over on .Net Rocks (a podcast about programming),, have a series of podcasts called Geek Outs. These shows cover a non-programming topic in detail, with Richard Campbell doing most of the research and Carl Franklin asking questions.

I thought I’d make a list of links to all the Geek Out shows, so I could find them easier and check off the ones I’ve heard (or listen again). The shows are sorted by date, with the most recent shows first. Enjoy!

Doing what you love and my 27 years at Cree/Wolfspeed

Working at the same company for 27 years is seen by some as bad for your career. Sure, I may have been able to make a little more money, but I do feel like I have mastered many of the skills I learned while working for Wolfspeed. And I don't think you truly understand a role until you have been submersed in it for a few years. When I started my career there were around 150 people working at Wolfspeed (then Cree Research). I started as a programmer, working on a shrink wrapped software application that controlled LED message signs. In my role, I worked on other software projects and was even involved in building an eight foot full color LED video screen. Very cool! Over the next twenty odd years, I have held many different roles and created some amazing things at Wolfspeed. I created the company's first public web page and also their first internal web portal. At last count, I have created over thirty five applications that are used for data parsing and analysis (and other needs

What Next?

 It's time. It's time to do something completely different. Starting in November, I will be retired from Cree/Wolfspeed where I have worked for over 27 years. I feel it is time to move on. With that said, I'd like to do something. Something other than software or database development. I'm not really sure what form it will take, but I am open to suggestions. I know that I don't want to sit at a desk all day. I'd like to do something that helps others or the environment. It doesn't have to be related to photography, but could be. If you have any ideas, let me know. Cheers, Wade
