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.



You'll be exposed to broad areas of information as well as deep dives into the guts of a programming language. Most topics discussed are relevant in any number of Object Oriented programming languages such as C#, Java, Ruby, PHP, etc.. All three of us are full stack web and database / software engineers so we discuss Javascript, HTML, SQL and a full spectrum of technologies and are open to any suggestions anyone might have for a topic. So please join us, subscribe, and invite your computer programming friends to come along for the ride.

    Understanding Git

    Understanding Git

    After working with Git for over a decade, we decide to take a deep dive into how it works, while Michael, Allen, and Joe apparently still don't understand Git.

    Stack Overflow 2022 Survey Says ...

    Stack Overflow 2022 Survey Says ...

    Once again, Stack Overflow takes the pulse of the developer community where we have all collectively decided to switch to Clojure, while Michael is changing things up, Joe is a future predicting trailblazer, and Allen is "up in the books"

    Site Reliability Engineering – More Evolution of Automation

    Site Reliability Engineering – More Evolution of Automation

    We're going back in time, or is it forward?, as we continue learning about Google's automation evolution, while Allen doesn't like certain beers, Joe is a Zacker™, and Michael poorly assumes that UPSes work best when plugged in.

    Site Reliability Engineering - Evolution of Automation

    Site Reliability Engineering - Evolution of Automation

    We explore the evolution of automation as we continue studying Google's Site Reliability Engineering, while Michael, ah, forget it, Joe almost said it correctly, and Allen fell for it.

    Site Reliability Engineering – (Still) Monitoring Distributed Systems

    Site Reliability Engineering – (Still) Monitoring Distributed Systems

    We finished. A chapter, that is, of the Site Reliability Engineering book as Allen asks to make it weird, Joe has his own pronunciation, and Michael follows through on his promise.

    Site Reliability Engineering - Monitoring Distributed Systems

    Site Reliability Engineering - Monitoring Distributed Systems

    We haven't finished the Site Reliability Engineering book yet as we learn how to monitor our system while the deals at Costco as so good, Allen thinks they're fake, Joe hasn't attended a math class in a while, and Michael never had AOL.

Great show! Subscribe now!

Hilarious, entertaining, and on the rare occasion, even informative. The current series on Google and Site Reriabelity Enjunering (SRE) is fantastic. Joe, Allen, and Michael add insightful perspective on each of the topics, filtered through the lens of their own professional experience. This distillation aids in understanding the ideas of SRE as they relate to the one or two companies (or your own career) that may have smaller scale than Google, all the while keeping you engaged and asking for more (much like a Costco cake).

You won’t be disappointed.

p.s. I hope they make me a guest host or I’ll update this to a 1-star review. Then they’ll see how averages are much more powerful than percentiles… ;-)

Very good and funny code podcast

I look forward to this podcast each week just to catch up on the news and here some dad jokes and programmer statistics. Very funny crew.

I’m binging on your podcast recently

I’ve been an on and off listener since your “I is for Interface” episode. I was but an entry level developer when I started listening and wasn’t particularly keen on the literature just yet, so I didn’t understand half of what you guys were saying. But now that I’ve been in the software industry for 5 years, I find myself going back to your past episodes and finally understanding and appreciating the bit of knowledge you guys impart within each episode. Keep up the good work, I’ve learned and still am learning a lot from you guys, while at the same time reinforcing good software practices from your episodes. Thanks again!
