Pragmatic talk about software design best practices: design patterns, software architecture, coding for performance, object oriented programming, database design and implementation, tips, tricks and a whole lot more.
How to Scrum
We discuss the parts of the scrum process that we're supposed to pay attention to while Allen pronounces the m, Michael doesn't, and Joe skips the word altogether.
What is Scrum?
During today's standup, we focus on learning all about Scrum as Joe is back (!!!), Allen has to dial the operator and ask to be connected to the Internet, and Michael reminds us why Blockbuster failed.
Show Recursion Show
We dig into recursion and learn that Michael is the weirdo, Joe gives a subtle jab, and Allen doesn't play well with others while we dig into recursion.
Specialize or Bounce Around?
It's been a minute since we last gathered around the water cooler, as Allen starts an impression contest, Joe wins said contest, and Michael earned a participation award.
Why is Python Popular?
We dig into all things Python, which Allen thinks is pretty good, and it's rise in popularity, while Michael and Joe go toe-to-toe over a gripe, ahem, feature.
Game Jam Lessons Learned
We step back to reflect on what we learned from our first game jam, while Joe's bathroom is too close and Allen taught Michael something (again).
One of my favorite programmers' podcasts
I found these guys while searching for something on design patterns in audio format. I hope they'll continue and finish the series on the topic. The podcast is a well mix of fun, theory and stories from programmers' daily life.
Tediously long and without time stamps
These guys are prone to bringing up fairly relevant but too abstract topics of the programming realm. Perhaps, the latter is to blame that they just lose track every now and again and start chatting about something not related to their subjects. Thus, their podcasts are too long and could definitely be shorter, if they stuck to their topics. To cap it all, time stamps are not provided in the notes and therefore listening for 2 hours turns into constant skipping to finally reach the relevant pieces.
