Nader Dabit: Avoiding Career Stagnation, Going From Mobile to Full-Stack to Web3.0, and Building w/ New Primitives
Nader joins Adam to discuss how he's managed to avoid career stagnation by going from mobile dev to full-stack web dev to web3.0. He also shares his perspective on web3.0 as a set of new primitives while Adam does his best to represent the side of the skeptic, as much as an Enneagram Type 9 can.
Laura Hyatt: All Things AWS IoT, Finding your Passion in Tech, and Oxford University is Really Old
Laura joins Adam to discuss her many IoT projects, her role at AWS as a Global Solutions Architect for Resilience Hub, how she's continued to find her passion in tech, and some facts about Oxford University. Spoiler: it's really old.
Matthew Bonig: Building Applications from Front to Back, Squirrel and Otter Dance Offs, and Lots of CDK
Matthew joins Adam to discuss his love for building applications from start to finish, how he transitioned into DevOps, his relationship with Eric (Ernie) Johnson and their many costumes, and his experience with the CDK. He wrote the book!
Renato Losio: Comparing Aurora Serverless Versions, Using Certs to Branch Out, and Forced Networking Through Speaking
Renato joins Adam to discuss the differences between Aurora Serverless v1 and v2, how he's used AWS certifications to learn topics he might not dive into otherwise, and the benefits of speaking at conferences when you're introverted.
Some podcasts I listen to purely for entertainment, others to learn. This podcast does both. I always leave these discussions inspired to build on AWS and try new tools and techniques. Adam is also entertaining and engaging as a host. Love the end of show games.
IGreat show - informative _and_ inspirational
Been listening to the show on Twitter Spaces when I can, am am _super_ glad the episodes are also distributed this way too.
The show has a nice casual vibe talking with guests I really admire, and has the right mix of biosketch vs. current projects vs. hot takes.
Sometimes it’s even a little goofy, but tbh I’m a little goofy so I think I might have found my people!
Just listened to the Ian McKay episode and Adam saying his wife makes fun of him for his podcast nerdery was, um, _relatable_. Keep doing wha you are doing!
Adam does a great job at making - what could be a boring topic - very interesting.
