Join us as we get back into the world of Open Telemetry. Piggy-backing on previous conversations from the Google SRE series as well as DevOps, metrics and instrumentation is a key component of understanding what’s happening with your systems. Follow along as Michael, Allen and Joe dive into Open Telemetry’s Metric offerings.[Read more…]
We’ve mentioned in the past that the code we write isn’t maintaining heartbeats or being used in life-critical settings, but what if your code is? NASA happens to be a company who has code that is life and mission critical and it’s very possible it won’t even be accessible once it leaves earth. In this episode, we explore what has been deemed “The Power of 10” for writing safety-critical code.

Get a behind the scenes intro to some of the interesting conversations we have before we even get into the content. We’ll be jumping into the meat of this episode and looking at the specifics of tracing using OpenTelemetry. Before we do that though, we should probably find out what special 2-liter containers Outlaw uses that can somehow trap the bubbles for more than 24 hours after opening, find out if Joe is alone in liking flat carbonated drinks, and maybe Allen has fallen off his rocker for suggesting that the ONE THING that is metric in the USA should be converted to empirical measurements. Maybe leave a comment on the episode to join in the fun. To see the full show notes and/or leave a comment, head over to…
In this episode, Allen, Michael and Joe discuss the latest update with the Reddit saga, software for designing audio and reproducing analog sounds, an open-ended interview question and tips on how to be a great leader.[Read more…]
Last episode, it might have been said that you can become a senior engineer in just one short year. Our amazing slack community spoke up and had some thoughts on that as well…we revisit that, and what does senior even mean?! Join us for that and much more as Allen plays more with ChatGPT, Michael talks business sense with new customer acquisition costs, and Joe will do just about anything to make troubleshooting an application easier.

We’re back after a brief break for a busy month of May, and we’re here to talk about some pretty cool stuff happening in the developer world. Outlaw took vacation and can remember nothing, Joe introduces us to Sherlocking, and Allen discovered what all the fuss was about with Chat GPT as a software developer. If you find some of this interesting, come hang out with us on Slack and share your thoughts![Read more…]
In this episode we talk about several things that have been on our mind. We find that Joe has been taken over by AI’s, Michael now understands our love of Kotlin, and Allen wants to know how to escape supporting code you wrote forever.[Read more…]
We’ve got a new / old opening…Allen goes off / on script? Michael denies Joe the “swing” vote, and Joe is all in on AI assistance[Read more…]
There’s this thing called ChatGPT you may have heard of. Is it the end for all software developers? Have we reached the epitome of mankind? Also, should you write your own or find a FOSS solution? That and much more as Allen gets redemption, Joe has a beautiful monologue, and Outlaw debates a monitor that is a thumb size larger than his current setup.[Read more…]
As software developers, it’s probably an understatement to say we spend a LOT of time at our keyboards. All three of us hosts of the show have had a number of keyboards over our careers either to address the pains that come with typing all day, or wanting that feel that only the sweetest of mechanical switches provide. Even with all the keyboards we’ve used/seen over our collective time behind a computer, there may not have been a keyboard more anticipated by at least two of us, Michael and Allen, as the Moonlander by ZSA. It was SO anticipated that both of us included it in our 2020 Developer Shopping list![Read more…]
