Getting a computer program to run the same in different environments has been a recurring problem since the earliest days of software systems. Software versioning, versions of dependencies, hardware configurations, and CPU instruction set differences are just a few examples of challenges engineers have faced to get their software to run in differen…
 
If you haven’t encountered a data quality problem, then you haven’t yet worked on a large enough project. Invariably, a gap exists between the state of raw data and what an analyst or machine learning engineer needs to solve their problem. Many organizations needing to automate data preparation workflows look to Trifacta as a solution. In this epis…
 
As the internet has grown, increasingly, we are consumers of services provided by corporations rather than owners and operators of our own systems. To many, this trend towards centralization is antithetical to the spirit of a free and open internet. Urbit is a new operating system and peer-to-peer network. There are several layers of novel ideas in…

Robotic process automation or RPA refers to software robots constructed to automate some business process. Perhaps the most ubiquitous example is adding filters to your email inbox. I’ve worked with a lot of salespeople that configure complex email follow-up campaigns when inbound emails come in, but even that’s a fairly basic example compared to w…
 
Everyone is becoming increasingly aware of supply chains for physical goods. Software has its own supply chain. A supply of open source solutions exists as does a demand for these solutions by industry. Both have surely grown, but it would be nice to have a way of measuring by how much. The State of Software Supply Chain 2021 is an annual publicati…
 
Relational databases have been a fixture of software applications for decades. They are highly tuned for performance and typically offer explicit guarantees like transactional consistency. More recently, there’s been a figurative cambrian explosion of other-than-relational databases. Simple key value stores or counters were an early win in this spa…
 
The lifeblood of most companies is their sales departments. When you’re selling something other than a commodity, it’s typically necessary to carefully groom the onboarding experience for inbound future customers. Historically, companies approached this in a one-size-fits-all manner, giving all customers a common experience. In today’s data-driven …
 
As cloud providers enable greater levels of specificity and control, they empower compliance-driven enterprise companies. This level of parameterization is downright inhospitable to a new software engineer and can be a cognitive barrier to entry for a senior professional with a great idea but limited time. Developers want to focus on their code, al…
 
Writing your application’s code is only half the battle. Getting it to run on your machine is a milestone, but it’s far from your code running in a production environment. There are an increasing set of options application designers have for helping to manage deployment, environments, and CI/CD. Encore is a backend engine for the Go language. One o…
 
Microservice architecture has become a ubiquitous design choice. Application developers typically have neither the training nor the interest in implementing low-level security features into their software. For this and many other reasons, the notion of a service mesh has been introduced to provide a framework for service-to-service communication. T…
 
Many software projects run the risk of evolving over time to a complex state that is inhospitable for new contributors to join. This is a dangerous place for a company to be. Either software needs to remain more accessible, or faster paths must be created to help them get on board. Today’s interview is with Kartik Agaram. We explore some of these t…
 
Climate modeling is increasingly important as supply chains, emergency management, and dozens of other efforts need to make predictions about future conditions and how they will impact business. Analyzing climate data requires geospatial systems, and those systems need a full-stack geospatial technology solution. Gopal Erinjippurath serves as CTO a…
 
Once a machine learning model is trained and validated, it often feels like a major milestone has been achieved. In reality, it’s more like the first lap in a relay race. Deploying ML to production bears many similarities to a typical software release process, but brings several novel challenges like failing to generalize as expected or model drift…
 
Internships can be an incredibly valuable resource to new professionals and are often the first professional work experience for many participants. It’s often the case that internship programs are suboptimal. Employers don’t always provide a clear path to success for the intern. Interns in turn don’t always have a resource to reach out for help or …
 
When creating a website, there’s no shortage of choices for how to do it. Builders must make strategic decisions about the language or framework they want to adopt. An important first consideration for many is selecting a web application framework like React or Vue. Motivated by a low page response time and good user experience, many developers wan…
 
Application observability is a fairly mature area. Engineering teams have a wide selection of tools they can choose to adopt and a significant amount of thought leadership and philosophy already exists giving guidance for managing your application. That application is going to persist data. As you scale up, your system is invariably going to experi…
 
Consumers are increasingly becoming aware of how detrimental it can be when companies mismanage data. This demand has fueled regulations, defined standards, and applied pressure to companies. Modern enterprises need to consider corporate risk management and regulatory compliance. In this interview, I speak with Terry O’Daniel, Director of Engineeri…
 
Thanks to the amazing books, blogs, videos, quickstarts, frameworks, and other software-related resources, getting started as a software engineer is easier than ever. Although you can get started in a day, it can take years to become a master of the craft and most practitioners describe it as a profession of lifelong learning. Titus Winters is a Se…
 
With a few impressive exceptions, software is rarely written by one person. It takes a team and as that team outgrows a single shared office, coordination and communication become emergent problems. There are lots of lessons to be learned from companies that have already found approaches that scale. In this episode, I interview Tramale Turner, Head…
 
Neural networks, in particular, deep neural networks have revolutionized machine learning. Researchers and companies have pushed on the efficiency of every aspect of the machine learning lifecycle. The impact of the trained models is particularly significant for computer vision and in turn for autonomous driving and security systems. In this episod…
 
Modern businesses run on the cloud and increasingly so they run on multi-cloud infrastructure. As any growing company can tell you, cloud costs can easily run far out of control. Today’s enterprises are trying to deliver new products and services at a fast pace. That needs to be done in a cost-effective, ideally cloud-agnostic way. In this intervie…
 
To many people’s surprise tech sales is not much of an art. It’s actually a regimented science where reps have clear step-by-step processes to bring in new business. Each stage takes the customer closer to the end of the deal and consists of learning more about the customer’s needs. A CRM is a database reps use to track this customer journey allowi…
 
The banking industry uses technology that some modern software engineers may regard as out of date or old-fashioned. Entrepreneurs wanting to create products in the banking space historically faced a steep curve to build software that could integrate with established banking systems. Christopher Dean seeks to change that. He founded Treasury Prime,…
 
The internet is a layer cake of technologies and protocols. At a fundamental level, the internet runs on the TCP/IP protocol. It’s a packet based system. When your browser requests a file from a web server, that server chops up the file into tiny pieces known as packets and puts them on the network labeled with your machine’s address as its destina…
 
Machine learning models must first be trained. That training results in a model which must be serialized or packaged up in some way as a deployment artifact. A popular deployment path is using Tensorflow.js to take advantage of the portability of JavaScript, allowing your model to be run on a web server or client. Gant Laborde is Chief Innovation O…
 
It does not matter if it runs on your machine. Your code must run in the production environment and it must do so performantly. For that, you need tooling to better understand your application’s behavior under different circumstances. In the earliest days of software development, all we had were logs, which are still around and incredibly useful. Y…

It’s used by millions of web applications and has a strong ecosystem of core contributors and library builders. In this episode, I interview Minko Gechev, Developer Relations Lead at Google. We explore several aspects of open-source software …
 
It wasn’t that long ago that companies scheduled downtime in order to release an updated version of the software running their website. That’s rare today. Most developers want continuous testing, integration, and deployment. While that comes with many benefits, it also places greater demands on quality engineers who can no longer gate all updates i…
 
The manner in which users interact with technology has rapidly switched to mobile consumption. The devices almost all of us carry with us at all times open endless opportunities for developers to create location-based experiences. Foursquare became a household name when the introduced social check-ins. Today they’re a location data platform. Ankit …
 
The React Framework has seen continuous growth of adoption since its launch. There are many reasons for that, but one reason is how relatively painless it is to use `react-create-app` or copy some boilerplate code and have a functioning, hot reloading, live demo up and running in minutes. There is, however, a long way to do between proof of concept…

This javascript framework is capable of powering a wide array of modern applications and remains fairly beloved by developers that use it. In this episode, I interview Kent C. Dodds, Softwar…
 
Modern business applications are complex. It’s not enough to have raw logs or some basic telemetry. Today’s enterprise organizations require an application performance monitoring solution or APM. Today’s applications are complex distributed systems whose performance depends on a wide variety of factors. Every single line of code can affect producti…
 
One of the most painful parts of getting started on a new development team is getting one’s environment set up. Whether it’s undocumented steps, overly complex setups, or simply the challenges of understanding how the pieces fit together, getting a dev environment up often feels like a chore to be suffered through in order to do what I want: contri…
 
The notebook paradigm of coding is relatively new in comparison to REPLs and IDEs. Notebooks run in your browser and give you discrete cells for running segments of code. All the code in a single cell runs at once, but cells run independently. Cells can be re-run, which is a blessing and a curse. The ability to run cells out of order can make it di…
 
Virtual meetings were growing in popularity before the need accelerated as a result of the pandemic. Gather is a place where you can create a space for your community today. Users who join find themselves in a shared virtual space that offers the ability to interact with other users as well as interact with the environment itself. In this episode, …
 
Imagine a world where you own some sort of building whether that’s a grocery store, a restaurant, a factory… and you want to know how many people reside in each section of the store, or maybe how long did the average person wait to be seated or how long did it take the average factory worker to complete their assembly task. Currently today these sy…
 
The gig economy involves independent contractors engaging in flexible jobs. Today gig workers often get work from centralized platforms that facilitate the process of connecting workers with employers in exchange for a fee. Some workers find the relationship between worker and platform to be adversarial in nature since the platform can establish an…
 
Venture capital investment has continued to flow into technology startups. No one builds technology from scratch.

Those that are popular can often take off and spawn a long history of remixes, variants, derivatives, and inspired works. In this episode, we interview Johan Unger, the founder of meme.com. They’re creating a platform for Meme Explorers to trac…
 
The last 15 years have seen the emergence of cloud-based developer APIs and services as dominant components of the developer toolchain. As a result, there has never been more power at developers’ fingertips. But making that power usable and accessible is a challenge that is shared between the providers and the consumers of these services. Google’s …
 
The expression firing on all cylinders dates back to the early 1900s and refers to a function of the internal combustion engine. This expression poetically applies to successful businesses as well. Each department must operate at peak performance and the couplings between departments need optimization as well. In this episode, I interview business …
 
Infrastructure as Code is an approach to machine provisioning and setup in which a programmer describes the underlying services they need for their projects. However, this infrastructure code doesn’t compile a binary artifact like traditional source code. The successful completion of running the code signals that the servers and other components de…
 
As our guest today points out, most enterprise software applications are essentially forms for collecting data. The tag and related components started appearing in HTML fairly early and those same concepts are still in use with modern web browsers. However, the technology for capturing state, validating input, and providing other common serv…
 
By most accounts, demand for software engineers exceeds supply. Not just anyone can develop this skill set to the level required to deliver enterprise-grade production code.
