MTJC podcast is a show about mobile development. Each week Jaime Lopez, Mark Rubin (sometimes Greg Heo and Tammy Coron) and myself, Tim Mitra, will convene from across the continent to discuss iOS and Mac development. We discuss current issues to find out what developers are talking about, what their apps are about, what they are using to create their apps and what advice they have for other developers (or those looking to become one). We also have news, notes and tech tips for developers.

Great podcast...

Great content, great discussions and very relevant topics.

 joltguy ,

More than just good!

Since I discovered this podcast it has quickly become one that I absolutely listen to every week. MTJC consistently features lively conversation about timely Apple development topics with a group of friendly and knowledgeable developers. In addition to all the great insights you’ll likely discover some useful links as the guys run through their “picks” each week.
