Software Media with Charles Max Wood

Software engineers have a wide variety of media to choose from, including podcasts, blogs, YouTube videos, conferences. The amount of software engineering media that is available is growing and accelerating.

Eight years ago, there were not as many options for information about software. Charles Max Wood founded Devchat.tv to create a network of podcasts and other content for software engineers. Today, his podcasts include the popular shows JavaScript Jabber, Ruby Rogues, and Adventures in Angular.

Chuck joins the show for a conversation about software media. This was his second time on the show, with his first episode exploring his podcast JavaScript Jabber.
