Technical interviews about software topics.
Developer Relations at Google with Luke Mahe
The last 15 years have seen the emergence of cloud-based developer APIs and services as dominant components of the developer toolchain.

Developer Productivity with Utsav Shah
By most accounts, demand for software engineers exceeds supply. Not just anyone can develop this skill set to the level required to deliver enterprise-grade production code. For those that can, companies are incentivized to take extra measures to ensure software engineers are as productive as possible. The pace of business is often throttled by the
Modern Data Infrastructure and Tools with Leigh Marie Braswell
The first industrial deployments of machine learning and artificial intelligence solutions were bespoke by definition and often had brittle operating characteristics. Almost no one builds custom databases, web servers, or email clients. Yet technology groups today often consider developing homegrown ML and data solutions in order to solve their unique use cases. Today’s modern data
