Description

Pragmatic talk about software design best practices: design patterns, software architecture, coding for performance, object oriented programming, database design and implementation, tips, tricks and a whole lot more.



You'll be exposed to broad areas of information as well as deep dives into the guts of a programming language. Most topics discussed are relevant in any number of Object Oriented programming languages such as C#, Java, Ruby, PHP, etc.. All three of us are full stack web and database / software engineers so we discuss Javascript, HTML, SQL and a full spectrum of technologies and are open to any suggestions anyone might have for a topic. So please join us, subscribe, and invite your computer programming friends to come along for the ride.

Some Fun APIs

Some Fun APIs

2021-05-2401:46:11

We couldn't decide if we wanted to gather around the water cooler or talk about some cool APIs, so we opted to do both, while Joe promises there's a W in his name, Allen doesn't want to say graph, and Michael isn't calling out applets.

We discuss all things APIs: what makes them great, what makes them bad, and what we might like to see in them while Michael plays a lawyer on channel 46, Allen doesn't know his favorite part of the show, and Joe definitely pays attention to the tips of the week.
How to Scrum

How to Scrum

We discuss the parts of the scrum process that we're supposed to pay attention to while Allen pronounces the m, Michael doesn't, and Joe skips the word altogether.
What is Scrum?

What is Scrum?

2021-03-2901:56:11

Show Recursion Show

Show Recursion Show

We dig into recursion and learn that Michael is the weirdo, Joe gives a subtle jab, and Allen doesn't play well with others while we dig into recursion.
It's been a minute since we last gathered around the water cooler, as Allen starts an impression contest, Joe wins said contest, and Michael earned a participation award.
Why is Python Popular?

Why is Python Popular?

2021-02-1502:20:49

Game Jam Lessons Learned

Game Jam Lessons Learned

2021-02-0101:43:34

We step back to reflect on what we learned from our first game jam, while Joe's bathroom is too close and Allen taught Michael something (again).
We discuss all things open-source, leaving Michael and Joe to hold down the fort while Allen is away, while Joe's impersonations are spot on and Michael is on a first name basis, assuming he can pronounce it.
We start off the year discussing our favorite developer tools of 2020, as Joe starts his traditions early, Allen is sly about his résumé updates, and Michael lives to stream.
Into the Octoverse

Into the Octoverse

2020-12-2102:04:01

It's the end of 2020. We're all tired. So we phone it in for the last episode of the year as we discuss the State of the Octoverse, while Michael prepared for the wrong show (again), Allen forgot to pay his ISP bill and Joe's game finished downloading.
We

We

2020-12-0702:14:56

We discuss the things we're excited about for 2021 as Michael prepared for a different show, Joe can't stop looking at himself, and Allen gets paid by the tip of the week.
We learn all the necessary details to get into the world of developer game jams, while Michael triggers all parents, Allen's moment of silence is oddly loud, and Joe hones his inner Steve Jobs.
We wrap up our deep dive into The DevOps Handbook, while Allen ruined Halloween, Joe isn't listening, and Michael failed to... forget it, it doesn't even matter.
The 2020 Shopping Spree

The 2020 Shopping Spree

2020-10-2602:18:45

It's our favorite time of year where we discuss all of the new ways we can spend our money in time for the holidays, as Allen forgets a crucial part, Michael has "neons", and Joe has a pet bear.
We dive into the benefits of enabling daily learning into our processes, while it's egregiously late for Joe, Michael's impersonation is awful, and Allen's speech is degrading.
We wrap up the second way from The DevOps Handbook, while Joe has a mystery episode, Michael doesn't like ketchup, and Allen has a Costco problem.

Very cool podcast. I read the book a while back and thought it was brilliant. But this episode made it even better. As good was the book was, you really nailed it home with your insights and interpretation!

I thoroughly enjoy this podcast. The hosts are entertaining, knowledgeable and have great insight into the management of developers as well as the work of developers. Tons of great resources are cited throughout and they try to keep a range of environments and languages in mind in all of their episodes.
