    LB Labs: Solving The Pull Request Problem w/ Continuous Merge

    LB Labs: Solving The Pull Request Problem w/ Continuous Merge

    Fact: The state of pull requests is broken and we finally have the data to prove it. In our latest LinearB Labs episode we reveal the information that has led us to the inevitable conclusion that pull requests have become a massive source of toil, bottlenecks and a huge barrier to shipping.
    Better yet, two people who have been thinking about how to attack this dev workflow issue – Dan Lines and Ori Keren of LinearB – are ready to actually propose a solution: continuous merge.
    The next step in CI/CD, continuous merge is the concept of creating lanes where pull requests can be merged based on their risk. Plain and simple, pull requests should not all be treated the same.
    The first step in continuous merge proposed in the episode is the dev tool gitStream, which automates and optimizes merging pull requests based on risk and level of attention required.
    A game-changing conversation, this episode is the first time you might hear about continuous merge but it certainly won’t be the last.

    Why Devs Break Up with Their Bosses w/ Oliver Wyman's Carolyn Vo

    Why Devs Break Up with Their Bosses w/ Oliver Wyman's Carolyn Vo

    Everyone who manages a team would like to think that their employees admire them as individuals and as leaders. That you make an impact on those employees while they work under you and long after you end up moving to new companies and opportunities.
    One such engineering leader who has mastered the mix of manager, friend and mentor is Carolyn Vo. A Partner and Head of Engineering at Oliver Wyman, Carolyn is one of engineering’s leading advocates on the benefits of creating a culture of approachability, tinkering and healthy levity. 
    In fact, in our conversation, Carolyn makes a strong argument that without honing the art of approachable management, not only does productivity suffer, but engineers are consistently looking for the door.
    One of our liveliest pods to date, we hope you can absorb Carolyn’s insights and energy no matter where you are on your leadership journey.

    The Art of Letting Your Devs Step Up w/ Equinix’s Rajah Kalipatnapu

    The Art of Letting Your Devs Step Up w/ Equinix’s Rajah Kalipatnapu

    Like every other team-based profession, engineering needs leaders. But identifying a true, tested and proven road for taking a programmer and putting them in a position of managing projects & priorities is still a work in progress.
    That’s why I was so excited to speak with Rajah Kalipatnapu, Global Head of Product Engineering at Equinix. 

    One of the most experienced minds in building world-class engineering orgs, Rajah credits his success with focusing on different ways to incrementally identify leaders and empower them to be the managers their business needs and their colleagues admire.
    From his unique perspective on creating CEOs for features to dealing with beloved employees who can’t code up to the teams’ needs, Rajah’s theories on how and when to let your developers step up to the moment need to be heard.

    How a Trained Therapist Diagnoses Healthy Dev Teams w/ Engineer & Entrepreneur, Kelly Vaughn

    How a Trained Therapist Diagnoses Healthy Dev Teams w/ Engineer & Entrepreneur, Kelly Vaughn

    Not only is Kelly Vaughn one of the pioneers in building thought-leadership content for the developer community, she’s one of the rare programmers who comes to the craft with the background of a trained therapist.
    From knowing what content devs need to grow to being able to recognize the cognitive-behavioral impacts of the developer experience, Kelly Vaughn is truly one of our most unique guests to date.
    In our conversation, Kelly leveraged her background as a therapist to explore what dev orgs should be doing to recognize developers as unique human beings, with their own feelings, motivations and biases.
    A discipline-crossing discussion, this pod is invaluable if you’re thinking about what a healthy dev team should look like as well as how to build one.

    The Dangers of Shipping at All Costs w/ CEO & Cofounder of 33 Teams, Drew McManus

    The Dangers of Shipping at All Costs w/ CEO & Cofounder of 33 Teams, Drew McManus

    In a field like engineering, to have a truly unique 30,000-feet view of the profession, you need someone with 30 years of experience in adapting, innovating and creating in the space.
    That’s why we were so excited to talk to Drew McManus, CEO and Cofounder of 33 Teams.
    An engineer who’s helped shape the formative years of Apple, Adobe and so many more companies you have on your phone right now, Drew McManus is now advising rapidly growing dev orgs across the world at 33 Teams.
    Drew is an oracle (no pun intended) on how to see dev orgs as living organisms, identifying the structural, psychological and technological maladies keeping teams from becoming who they aspire to be.
    In our conversation, we touch upon everything from tech debt, to unlocking creativity to the all-too-common danger of shipping at all costs.
    If ever there was a way to download 30 years of engineering leadership in one hour, this is it.

    What a Healthy Relationship with Open Source Looks Like ft. GitLab's John Coghlan

    What a Healthy Relationship with Open Source Looks Like ft. GitLab's John Coghlan

    There’s an open secret about open source: Developers use it. Teams use it. Businesses use it. But no one really thinks about how they contribute to it.
    That’s why we jumped at the chance to get a state-of-open-source discussion with Gitlab’s John Coghlan, Senior Manager of Developer Advocacy.
    Someone who joined the open source community with the goal of making developers’ lives better, John came to the table with a wealth of insights into just how individual engineers leverage open source, how businesses leverage it and, most importantly, how to make our relationship with open source better - not just for you and me, but for the community as a whole.
    We hope you find this candid conversation on how to be thinking about using open source in the right ways as empowering and insightful as we did!

Fascinating

Very interesting subject matter

Excellent podcast with different perspectives

I’m really enjoying this podcast for all the different perspectives in each episode. As a dev leader it’s great to hear about real world topics which software teams deal with on a regular basis. I’ve especially enjoyed the episode on hiring devs on the autism spectrum, a topic which should be discussed more openly in the industry.

I’d recommend this to anyone in software looking for a good listen.
