Episode 30 – Gaming Health

A blue moon must have occurred, because Michael M and Michael R are together in the same room for this week’s show. We do, however, miss Phaedra due to circumstances beyond our control. We look at gaming programming education and gaming your health. Michael R. gives a read out on the new class he’s been taking via Code School (check out Episode 12th – Going Oldschool from way back on July 8th). This class allows your to learn iOS programming without investing in a Mac. Then we turn over to discussing Michael M.’s desire to game his work outs, with a review of various devices which provide insights to your daily work out, etc.
