Let us know your thoughts via Slack, Twitter, or email! Our podcast errs on the side of technical rigor. Whether the topic is distributed databases, microservices, Soylent, Uber, or Dwarf Fortress, we try to separate hype from substance, deferring the narrative to the guest.

“You’ve listened to podcasts where you gotta fast forward 8-9 minutes in before the actual meat happens.”
“I would say that the vast majority of people see programming more as a science. But to get the best work out of yourself, you have to be thinking from an artistic perspective. So it makes sense to make your north star, as an engineer, some sort of artistic goal.”
“Software is this really unique field that is growing so rapidly that people are almost forced to specialize into one subdomain – and that kind of stratification is good for your job and for your employers, but it’s not necessarily good for you as an individual trying to grow in the field of software.”
