Noteflight Marketplace, featuring Friend John Mlynczak (Season 3, Episode 6)

This week Robby catches up with John Mlynczak, Managing Director of Noteflight, about their new Marketplace platform and the state of digital music publishing. 

My opening monologue that usually introduces the show and guest was lost in an epic battle with my MacBook this week. Enjoy, instead, an awkward cold open, brought to you by Roomba and the Amazon Echo.

Taking Notes with Drafts, featuring Greg Pierce (Season 3, Episode 5)

Apple Education Event, with Friend Chris Russell (Season 3, Episode 4)

Task App Showdown, with Friend Craig McClellan (Season 3, Episode 3)

Craig returns to the show to talk about how we manage tasks, and the apps we use to manage them. There is a strong emphasis here on two of the premium task apps for Mac and iOS, Things and OmniFocus. 

This episode isn't so much a showdown between Craig and I or one app and another. It is more a celebration of the great features of pro task apps that we depend on to manage our teaching careers. For me, there is an ongoing showdown between these apps in my mind, as I constantly contemplate which tools best help my brain to stay focused on the task at hand. It was fun to process that with Craig.

Dorico, featuring Daniel Spreadbury (Season 3, Episode 2)

Daniel Spreadbury, Product Manager of notation editor, Dorico, joins the show.

Once we got going, this conversation ventured into great detail on the subject of Daniel’s start at Sibelius, using the different modes of Dorico, user interface design, the challenges of software development, the future of Dorico on mobile, and much more.

Daniel’s articulate thought and meticulous attention to detail made this a really fun episode to record. You can hear Daniel’s inner nerd pour out over every side of the product. From the backend code, to the user experience, to the customer support.
