    Connecting Your Devs' Work to the Business | A Conversation w/ Shopify, Slack & Stripe

    "Is my team solving the right problem?" 

    To answer this seemingly simple question, we assembled a panel of some of the smartest engineering leaders we know and asked them how they answer this question with their own teams.

    Featuring Rukmini Reddy, SVP of Platform Engineering at Slack, James Stanier, Dir. of Engineering at Shopify, and Smruti Patel, VP of Engineering at Apollo, the following conversation debuted in front of a live audience at the Interact engineering conference. 

    Originally an exclusive conversation for Interact attendees, we listened to our fans and decided to drop the full conversation as an episode of the podcast. 
    Items of note: 
    This panel was filmed in October prior to many of the recent layoffs that have been in the news. When this panel was recorded Smruti Patel worked at Stripe. She has since taken a job with Apollo.

    The Journey to Code Mastery w/ Marqeta's CTO, Randy Kern

    The Journey to Code Mastery w/ Marqeta's CTO, Randy Kern

    Randy Kern, CTO at Marqeta, thinks that every engineer should "go deep" - all the way to understanding the transistors if you have to. He implores us never to be satisfied with black boxes, believing that it's not only risky not to understand what your code is really doing, but it's not fun either.

    We love this episode because Randy's joy is infectious. He reminds us why we got into software engineering in the first place. If you've been looking for a reminder yourself, this is the episode for you.

    Startup Growth & Metrics: What to Measure & When w/ VP of Engineering & Leadership Coach, Laura Tacho

    Startup Growth & Metrics: What to Measure & When w/ VP of Engineering & Leadership Coach, Laura Tacho

    As your startup scales it's not enough to know what to measure - you have to know WHEN to measure. Metrics that are important in one growth phase might not be in the next.

    To help us make sense of it all, we invited Laura Tacho onto the show. Laura is a VP of Engineering & Leadership Coach, and an expert when it comes to startup growth and metrics, having worked with over 125 different companies.

    We love this episode because it takes a team-first approach to metrics and then relates those metrics back to the growth of your organization. Whether you are a seasoned engineering leader or an IC trying to understand where your team is headed, this unique take on metrics will set your team up for success - and happiness - in 2023.

    Educating the Next Generation of Cloud Engineers w/ Google Cloud's Head of Developer Media, Forrest Brazeal

    Happy New Year and welcome to Season 3 of Dev Interrupted! 

    We couldn't think of a better way to kick off Season 3 of the podcast than with the immensely talented Forrest Brazeal. 

    Not only is Forrest the Head of Developer Media at Google Cloud, but he lists being a writer, speaker, cartoonist, cloud architect and AWS Serverless Hero, among his many accolades. 

    To top it all off, Forrest is an all around great guy with a passion for education and advocacy. That's why he's working to help educate, train and develop the next generation of cloud engineers. But he needs your help. 

    Listen as Forrest explains why so many great engineers get overlooked by companies - and how to stop it.

    It’s Not Open Source, It’s You. Where Open Source Risk Comes From w/ Sonatype

    It’s Not Open Source, It’s You. Where Open Source Risk Comes From w/ Sonatype

    Picture this: an auto manufacturer with no clue what parts are in its supply chain, where those parts come from and no ability to recall those parts if vulnerabilities are discovered.

    That’s not a reality consumers would accept. So why do organizations (and manufacturers!) tolerate it when it comes to software? 

    On this week’s episode of Dev Interrupted, Brian Fox, co-founder & CTO, and Stephen Magill, VP of Product Innovation, join us to talk about Sonatype’s State of the Software Supply Chain Report. 

    Listen as Brian and Stephen explain the ins and outs of open source risk management, how companies that aren’t open source maintainers can do a better job protecting themselves and why cybercrime is like “VC funds for the bad guys.”

My favorite engineering podcast

The best engineering podcast for engineering leaders. I love it!

SeekingAlphaAudio ,

Season 3 is off to a great start

Dev Interrupted should be a go-to resource for engineering leaders, devs who want to level up, and anybody who is interested in what's happening in the world of engineering - or in hearing from some of the best leaders in the world. I love the intentionality with which the showrunners have developed the show - from adding to Dan Lines's hosting with his co-host Conor Bronsdon, to evolving the topics and format of the show, and ESPECIALLY by leveling up the audio production and bringing in video elements. Great show, can't wait to see where Season 3 takes us.

Always Insightful!

One of my favorite leadership and engineering podcasts. It’s a must listen for aspiring or current engineering leaders!
