Grains of Salt
We could all use some help making decisions. The advice we get isn’t always the most helpful. Sometimes, it’s easy to spot the bad advice. But what do you do when you can’t tell?
Two technologists share times of indecision where they had to figure out whether the guidance they asked for was really in their best interests.
All's Well That Ends Well
Big mistakes. Colossal setbacks. Bad days. We’ve all been there. But how do we find a way forward? The Compiler team shares two stories of unexpected challenges and happy endings.
People react differently when they hear the word “risk”. While there’s the possibility of reward, it takes a lot to step out of the comfort zone. The Compiler team asks if there’s ever such a thing as a safe bet, and hears from experienced risk-takers on the best time to take a leap of faith.
They say wisdom comes from experience. Starting out in the tech industry likely means you’re short on experience and looking for advice. One area where people could use a leg up? Learning the warning signs of a problematic project.
We hear stories from people who’ve figured out the hard way how to spot potential red flags, and what can happen when they’re missed.
Year In Review
It’s been a year of growth at Compiler, and we want to celebrate and share with our guests and listeners some of our favorite moments from the show. Thank you for all of the support, we’ll see you in 2024!
Learning never stops. But neither do our workloads. The constant influx of emails, messages, and tickets doesn’t leave much room for acquiring new skills—At least, not during our waking hours.
So, what do we do about it? The Compiler team discusses continuing education, its importance, and how to approach it with patience.
Great topics, great perspectives
I love the diversity of topics as well as perspectives of people in different tech roles. I appreciate the hosts’ efforts to stay on topic. I also really get the feeling the hosts enjoy discussing these topics.
Interesting but lacks standing
I listened to this podcast due to a recommendation from another tech podcast but it was obvious from the beginning that when when is very well produced it lacks the knowledge on the topic from the host. A technical podcast should be presented by someone who know the stuff. Is like a dev manager that has never been a dev trying to teach devs how to be devs…
Sharon and Brent keep it efficient, useful and fun
Red Hat is demonstrating their commitment to the open source and broader tech communities by supporting “Compiler” and “Command Line Heroes” podcasts and finding good hosts and best of all good topics.
