Freeform discussion of various programming and tech subjects
#13 Seed: This Week in Tech
Since the last podcast iOS9 came out so we review some of the basic stuff that stuck out. We move on to a much more interesting subject of what Microsoft is doing with it's Azure service and how it's leveraging linux, and why that shouldn't surprise you. We explore some initial thoughts on the fact that Nginx decided to have a conference and how that could be good (or bad for them). Finally we close it out with some thought on the lottery and prime numbers.
#12 Seed: Cars and Tech
We have cars on the minds and we take a minute to realize how lucky (or coincidental) it's been that our software development career has led to an unusual amount of exposure to vehicles that the general public or the next developer would otherwise not have. We also cover a story on a project with a car manufacturer that is also kind of a dev horror story.
#11 Seed: Markup and Mathematics
We were out on recovery after getting caught up in an LA County Norovirus mini outbreak. Exploring the thought of never having to write markup again and talking about how mathematics is super underutilized in software development.
#10 Seed: Digital Assistants
Wondering where search engines went wrong, the void digital assistants such as Siri, Google, and M, are trying to fill (and Cortana and Echo, though they aren't mentioned explicitly), and how these changes may impact us through digital advertising.
#9 Seed: F1
The first podcast recorded with the new audio set up, (working out the kinks). We start of talking about the technical feats of Formula 1 and general technological development in cars. We also diverge into mentioning software development projects with massive reach, end up covering points about career trajectory and what a fulfilling career could be. We also regale some personal career experiences as well as commenting on the general half life of a software engineer.
#8 Seed: Ramble On
A stream of consciousness that starts off with the music developers listen to and contents they consume, then morphs and evolves into a conversation about what programming could be, traverses that mind-loop to a simile about what asking a dev to build you a site is like, takes a second to take criticize the state of affairs of current web development, makes a pit stop on MaidSafe, and ponders on the technological singularity.
