    Ep. 013: DevOps: Super Lucky if There's an Api with Chris House

    Ep. 013: DevOps: Super Lucky if There's an Api with Chris House

    Chris House is our special guest and his job is to take care of all the things that you never think about. What happens when devs don't think about monitoring? What is "ops" like when people don't talk to each other? Spoiler alert: it can suck, but Chris knows how to fix it. If NT 4 is working out great for you then maybe isn't the episode for you.

    Also: Jorge hates Lee's new bag. Jorge will do your out-of-office emails for 6 months if you win our new contest. What it takes to earn the right to work in your underwear.

    Ep. 012: When We Think No One's Looking with Alex Jantz

    Do you like horror movies? Wait, who cares? I'll tell you who cares: it's Alex Jantz and he has a specific set of skills. And by that I mean data analysis. Are you going to "visit a bedroom" tonight or will you be left "shopping for tires?" Alex will let you know. Also: Is "Time to Hadoop" part of your relationship game? And a Release Mode first as the guest turns the tables on game time by challenging Lee and Jorge!

    Ep. 011: Not a Neccessary Evil with Jason Sich

    We’ve got developer, presenter, and conference organizer Jason Sich! He talks about writing software for a company that cares about … software? We get into language choices, the issues surrounding organizing conferences and speakers, and really a lot about the kind of things that developers decide to put up with (or not) when they choose their career path.

    Ep. 010: Let Me Talk About the Cucumber with Pete Richardson

    It's automated testing with Pete Richardson! The gang talks end-to-end testing nirvana to make smoother days and restful nights. Also: Plenty of tooling is discussed and we refrain from saying "boogers" until about minute 18. Lee gets in a jab at Eclipse. If you don't like Javascript maybe you should try VBScript ca. 2001. Jorge likes manually allocating data to processor registers.

    Ep. 009: Backend Development (For Buildings) with Erica Flannery

    Ep. 009: Backend Development (For Buildings) with Erica Flannery

    Big software projects are hard to estimate. Turns out, the same goes for buildings. Structural engineer Erica Flannery talks about estimates, budgets, and how buildings really get made. Hint: when a mommy and daddy building really love each other... If you think it's going to be a dry episode, it starts getting a "chippy" early, a little punchy at 30 minutes, and by 45 minutes it's an all out free-for-all. Also: Jorge says code coverage sucks. Metaphors are rarely perfect, especially when engineers are involved. Jorge: "I wasn't actually IN the dumpster" Erica: "Just your face?"

    Picks of the week:
    * Erica: Weber gas grills
    * Jorge: Typerdrummer.com
    * Lee: “The Failure of Agile” by Andy Hunt
    “The Pragmatic Programmer” by Andy Hunt and David Thomas

    Ep. 008: Not Just a Bunch of Friggin' Endpoints with Tim Wondergem

    What even is architecture? The gang talks distributed architecture (with a domain-driven design chaser) with developer and consultant Tim Wondergem in a special episode recorded live on-site at the Wondergem Compound. Also: Lee is allergic to WSDL. Tim doesn’t like otters. Lee and Jorge may owe basically everybody an apology. Sorry everybody.
