Conversations in Software Development is a podcast intended primarily for students (at any level) who want to learn more about software development, especially if they intend to pursue a career in that field. More specifically, the goal of the podcast is to expose students to topics and ideas that they don't usually get to see or practice in a classroom setting, including many aspects of software development that are not related to coding. In each episode, we have a conversation with someone who is involved in developing software in some capacity (such as software engineers, product managers, CTOs, etc.), and who share their insights and thoughts on a specific topic.
