“Seetharaman Narayanan” isn’t the only great-sounding name to grace the Photoshop splash screen over the years, and now Zalman Stern (who ported PS 2.5 to PowerPC, then left, started a company, and helped create Macromedia Contribute) has found his way back home. Both engineers joined their boss Dave Story plus George Jardine & Jeff Schewe to chat recently. George writes,
Assembling a cast of some of Adobe’s most interesting and talented engineers, this podcast attempts to crack the lid, if only just a little bit, and allow you a peek into some of the issues and thinking around our cross-platform development. We’ve included Zalman Stern, who has worked in the bowels of Photoshop code and just a few other world-class desktop applications… now working on Adobe Camera Raw; Seetharaman Narayanan, who has been crafting some of Adobe’s most ambitious cross-platform code for well over a decade; Dave Story, our VP of Engineering, who is training our focus on the big picture, to keep us firmly planted as leaders in the industry as we move into the 21st Century of application development; and finally, Jeff Schewe…. just to make sure the customer voice is always being heard!
As always the podcast is available via iTunes (search for “Lightroom”) and via this RSS feed. And maybe next time we’ll get Nkono Boyomo to sit in on a talk. 🙂
