Episodes and show notes available at friday.hirelofty.com. An unapologetic show about the culture and chaos of software engineering from the makers and breakers of digital products at Lofty Labs. We build software with Python and Django, Ruby and Rails, Golang, whatever frontend framework we're forced to use because it's popular this month, and anything else to get the job done right. Then on Friday afternoons we have a beer and talk about our regrets on this show.
We Can't Stop Hiring and Now We're Outnumbered
The Lofty team has been growing like crazy. Alan, Casey, and Tyrel reflect on our growth, how we're managing it, and how to prevent being overrun by the New Lofty hordes.
Uncle Blake teaches us how to trust Microsoft
Blake Johnston, the Captain to our Tenille, joins us to talk Microsoft's move on Discord, why you don't need your caps lock key, and how to make a better Box than Box.
Sometimes you smear, sometimes you spread w/ CK Hicks
Casey and Tyrel are joined by CK Hicks of Crema to discuss why Zoom calls can be so exhausting, how to stay plugged in to emerging tech as an agency, and if having a white table cloth disqualifies you from being a decent BBQ restaurant (it does).
Reading in the future sucks, but new team members don't!
As the team braces for the great snowvid storm of 2021, we introduce the newest member of the Lofty family, Daniel, who has sadly been chained to a PC for work for the last several years. You can hear the relief of working on a Unix system in very word he utters.
Understanding Django-CMS w/ Mario Colombo
Mario Columbo is the President of the Django CMS foundation, and he chats with Casey, Austin, and Tyrel about Django CMS and its role in the Python ecosystem.
New Year's (Dev) Resolutions: 2021 Edition w/ Blake Johnston
Happy new year, we're talking resoultions!
If you like money and hate tech
I like these guys because they share my hatred of tech but share my love of making money.
Not a normal tech podcast
This is a refreshing non-tech tech podcast. The Lofty team talks about development and their processes, but it isn't overly-technical or campy. It's refreshing to hear real devs talk about real dev work.
Funny & Smart
I find my boyfriend to be very funny and smart. The bits of the shows that I have listened to are amusing. 5 stars!!
