[e039] Stack Overflow 2021 Developer Survey Review
It’s that time of the year again. Curious to learn more about the new surge of developers and how that affects technology?

Every developer should have this in their toolbox. DbSchema, a database designer, gives a visual representation of your database.
A database represents not only raw data, but the relationship between that data. DbSchema articulates this relationship in a visual and accessible manner that breaths fresh life into usually dull diagrams.
This makes it easier for everyone, especially non-developers, to comprehend and contribute to what is seen as many outside, as a dark art.
Thank you Dragos Pruteanu for creating a vital piece of software. It was great having you on the podcast.

Unique and Approachable
Most tech or business podcasts cover startups or the Fortune 500. This one helps those companies in between. They peel the curtain back in complicated topics and make them easy to understand. Plus they know how this works with Private Equity owned companies which is an added plus. Keep it up!
These guys are good!
Terrific podcast! I love how the hosts take complicated -even intimidating for folks like me - topics and make them simple. I look forward to listening and learning.
