Programming Throwdown educates Computer Scientists and Software Engineers on a cavalcade of programming and tech topics. Every show will cover a new programming language, so listeners will be able to speak intelligently about any programming language.
140: Developer Burnout and Infrastructure as Code with Ronak Rahman
Burnout in the tech industry is a very prominent concern among both leaders and developers alike. Ronak Rahman, Developer Relations Manager at Quali, joins Patrick and I in this episode to share his experience, and why having the right infrastructure in place can prevent work-life erosion (plus sticker shock with cloud service bills)!
139: Scientific Python with Guido Imperiale
Coming off the heels of the scientific python conference, we are delighted to have Guido Imperiale, OSS Engineer at Coiled, to talk with us about this exciting space, including his own work on Dask, remote work benefits, and how distributed computing with the latest Python tools has allowed him to manage large data science projects with ease.
138: Fixing the Internet with John Day
In the second part of a two-episode special, Professor John Day continues to share his stories from the early days of the internet. From the debate surrounding IPv6, different methodology around network design, and John’s own career advice, there’s tons of wisdom and practical experience to be gained here!
137: The Origins of the Internet with John Day
Computing has certainly come a long way from punch cards and literal system bugs – yet there is so much more to learn. Professor John Day shares his stories from the heyday of the computer revolution, the challenges that they faced, and what he’s been up to lately, among others. This first part of a two-episode special is a rare treat with a pioneer, and one that people in the tech industry shouldn’t miss.
136: Metaverse with Daniel Liebeskind
Decentralizing the future can often lead to missing out on genuine human communication. Daniel Liebeskind, Cofounder and CEO of Topia, talks about how they’re working to avoid that pitfall while building the foundation of a better online experience. Whether its his lessons from Burning Man, keeping the human spirit alive in today’s technological frontier, or how Topia fits in the future, Daniel has something for listeners.
135: Kubernetes with Aran Khanna
Not sure how to take the website or service you built on your machine and put it in the cloud? Kubernetes is by far the most popular system for deploying applications, but it is also pretty intimidating for new developers. In this episode, we are joined by Aran Khanna from Archera to explain how Kubernetes works and how you can go from n00b to expert in Kubernetes in less time than it takes to say "works on my machine"!
Educational and also great fun!!
The more I listen the more i love these guys. As I’m just getting into the world of programming I find the style of this podcast is great. Short excursions into many different topics. Some fascinating discussion with a dash of humour thrown in for good measure. Keep up the good work!!
thanks keep it up
really enjoying listening to the old episodes. thanks for your time! as a scientist working on improving my engineering skills, please keep focusing on giving us exposure to new concepts, their pitfalls, differences between tried and true paradigms and hype. especially enjoyed the topic content for concurrency and functional programming! more like those! thanks again
Great podcast. Nice mix of chatty humour and useful tips! It both brightens and provides insights on my London commute :)
