TPDP038: COBOL Development on the Mainframe
In this episode I'm joined by Elizabeth Joseph from IBM, and we discuss COBOL.
I know what you're thinking. Why are we resurrecting a dinosaur of a programming technology for this podcast episode? While the programming language is one of the oldest, it is still very relevant when it comes to modern development, more particularly mainframe development.

TPDP037: Writing Tests in a Development Project
In this episode I'm joined by repeat guest, and awesome developer, Corbin Crutchley from Unicorn Utterances.
The topic of this episode is on testing, and I'm not talking about taking exams, I'm talking about writing tests in your development projects to produce much better final products.
If you've ever been curious about the differences between unit tests, integration tests, end to end tests, and all of the other possible types of tests that might exist, this episode is for you. It doesn't matter if you're a new developer, a casual developer, or expert developer, knowing how to write tests will greatly benefit your career.

TPDP036: Machine Learning, AI, and Data Science
In this episode I'm joined by Upkar Lidder from IBM, and we're talking about modern machine learning.
Do you process a large amount of data and manually make decisions on it? There's a good chance that you could be leveraging machine learning to reduce your workload and make more accurate decisions. Learn about what machine learning is, how it differs from artificial intelligence and data science, and what you need in order to be successful with it.

TPDP035: Developing on the Blockchain
In this episode I'm joined by Lennart Frantzell from IBM, and we're talking about the blockchain.
If you've ever been curious on what the blockchain is, why you should develop on it, or how to even develop on it, this is the episode for you. We clear the air on a lot of misconceptions that people have and show that it is more than just cryptocurrency and hype.

TPDP034: Containers, Virtual Machines, and Orchestration, Part 2
This episode is a continuation of the previous episode featuring Marek Sadowski from IBM.
In the previous episode, Marek and I discussed the history and use-cases behind virtual machines, containers, and bare metal deployments. We briefly discussed orchestration, but ran out of time when it came to getting into the exciting topics.
As part of the continuation, we jump into Kubernetes (K8s), a popular container orchestration tool, and how it differs from popular orchestration services like Red Had OpenShift. If you're looking to scale your organization, this is an episode worth listening to.

TPDP033: Containers, Virtual Machines, and Orchestration, Part 1
In this episode I'm joined by Marek Sadowski from IBM, and we're bringing DevOps into focus. More particularly, we're focusing on virtual machines, containers, and orchestrating them with tools like Kubernetes and RedHat OpenShift.
If you've ever had to deploy an application, you've probably asked yourself, what do I choose for deployment? Do I build my own hardware, use a virtual machine, or do I look into containers? What happens when your one application turns into one hundred applications? How do you manage those applications without bringing yourself to madness? Do you choose something like Kubernetes, or do you explore a managed solution like OpenShift?
This is a two part episode with this particular episode focusing on containers, virtual machines, and Kubernetes. The next episode in the series takes a spin at comparing Kubernetes to solutions like OpenShift for orchestration.
