Software Unscripted, A weekly podcast of casual conversations about code hosted by Richard Feldman & sponsored by NoRedInk.
Programming and Industrial Design with Greg Wilson
Richard talks with programming teacher Greg Wilson about different types of beginner programmers and how they learn most effectively, what counterintuitive aspects of programming languages they tend to find more or less difficult to learn, and about the surprising relationship between software architecture and industrial design.
Lambda Set Defunctionalization with Ayaz Hafiz
Richard talks with Ayaz Hafiz, a contributor to the Roc programming language, about a very specific topic in the Roc compiler, namely lambda set defunctionalization (including explaining what that term actually means). They then zoom out to talk about why more languages don't try to implement techniques like this in general.
Implementing Databases with Glauber Costa
Richard talks with Glauber Costa about how to implement databases that can do millions of reads per second, how hardware changes have affected the tradeoffs around relational and NoSQL databsaes, and what people mean by Big Data.
The Return of Hypermedia with Carson Gross
Richard talks with HTMX creator Carson Gross about some of the ways in which modern web development has arguably regressed over the past 15 or so years, as well as Hypertext, Hypermedia, HyperCard, HyperView, HyperScript, and even some other topics that don't have hyper in the name.
Go and Functional Programming with Lane Wagner
Richard talks with Lane Wagner, a Go backend engineer and founder of boot.dev, about Go's design and about functional programming.
The Roc Programming Language with Richard Feldman
José Valim hosts this episode, and chats with Roc Programming Language Richard Feldman about the language.
