    Ethereum Rescue

    Ethereum Rescue

    Today I talk to Dan Robinson about trying to get someone their money back on Ethereum. He's going to be battling this murky world of blockchain high-frequency bots. Along the way, we'll learn how trades are executed on Ethereum and a bit of game theory and political philosophy.

    It's an entertaining peek into a world that seems like pure science fiction to me, a world where nobody's in charge, where there's no regulation, and where these forces of greed and idealism are in direct conflict with each other.

    Reinforcement Learning At Facebook with Jason Gauci

    Reinforcement Learning At Facebook with Jason Gauci

    If you ever wanted to learn about machine learning you could do worse than have Jason Gauci teach you. Jason has worked on YouTube recommendations. He was an early contributor to TensorFlow the open-source machine learning platform. His thesis work was cited by DeepMind.


    But what I find so fascinating with Jason is he recognized this problem that was being solved the wrong way and set out to find a solution to it.

    So that's the show today. Jason is going to share his story.

    2020 Year End

    2020 Year End

    Welcome to the year-end episode. Today is all the bonus questions. Often times I have questions that I want to ask guests, but they don't quite fit the overall theme of the episode. So today we're going to do a whole episode of those extra questions.

    I have previously recorded questions for Brian Kernaghan, the creator of AWK among many other things. I have questions for Sean Allen, who works at Microsoft Research, and a couple of other people.

Best software engineering podcast

Title says it all. I’ve listened to a handful of different software-related podcasts, and this is the best one I’ve heard. Lots of history and computer science theory complemented by ideas that can also be applied in everyday practice.

Amazing Podcast About Software Development

Adam brings in a wide variety of guests, presenting engaging conversations about the very art and nature of software development. Regardless of where you are in your journey or where you work (frontend, backend and everything in between) there are insights to be gained.
Additionally there is a really vibrant slack community for the podcast. I can’t recommend this one enough!
