This week kicks off with an explanation of Chris’s so called grooming habits. Amos explains how to properly cook fried eggs. The guys remember the early days of the show and comment on how their audio quality was somehow even worse back then.

Amos is trying to figure out the best way to give back to the community. The discussion moves towards the social contracts of open source which Chris thinks is a thorny topic. Chris encourages people to contribute in whatever way they feel is best even if it means not writing code.

Chris rails against the programming communities obsession with hero culture and the toxicity of “rockstar programmers”. The guys discuss ways to try to build successful teams. Spoilers: the first step is not to hire a bunch of people who want to build RPC when all you need is a blog.
