BookBytes 41: Seven Languages in Seven Weeks - Haskell
Jason has dipped in and out of Haskell over the years, Adam did very little of the problems, and Jason teaches Adam a lot about functional programming.
BookBytes 40: Seven Languages in Seven Weeks - Clojure
Going through Clojure was an eye opening experience for Jason, and for Adam it’s intriguing, but the learning curve is very steep.
BookBytes 39: Seven Languages in Seven Weeks - Erlang
Jason loved tinkering with Erlang, they both read a little bit of Learn You Some Erlang, and Adam had a hard time with concurrency.
BookBytes 38: Seven Languages in Seven Weeks - Scala
Adam loves how it supports functional and object-oriented programming, Jason said it would take a long time to really wrap his head around it, and Adam had a hard time installing and running it.
BookBytes 37: Seven Languages in Seven Weeks - Prolog
Adam remembered using Prolog in college, Jason felt like he had no what he was doing, Adam thought it was fun and mind bending, and Jason felt like writing a Sudoku solver was like having cheat mode on.
BookBytes 36: Seven Languages in Seven Weeks - Io
Adam thought Io is a weird language, it changed Jason's perspective, and Adam thought the interview with the creator was insightful.

A dev book club - brilliant
I learned about this podcast when Safia mentioned it on the Women In Tech Show. What a great idea and helpful addition to my podcast roster. I'm listening to the episodes about Rob Conery's Imposter's Handbook now, and it's been close to 2 years since I read that book myself. This podcast is serving as a refresher, while also providing different perspectives and offering new rabbit holes to fall into. I'm loving this, thank you all!
Perfect Companion to other Developer Podcasts
I was confident that I had subscribed to every developer podcast I needed. It seems like many angles from tech, to community, to interviewing, ETC was covered. And then I found BookBytes and realized the hole that was missing in my lineup. I read tech/business books all the time, so this podcast was right up my ally and now it's part of my regular rotation. Looking forward to being part of the BookBytes club for a long time!
Sounds like a great way to connect to the authors of some great books!
