  1. WebComponents w/ Alex Russell

    After my recent adventures in WebComponents I thought it would be fun to sit down with Alex for a quick chat.

    Alex has been working on WebComponent standards since the beginning. We touch on the history as well as some of the changes in programming style when you have to live in the same world that native HTML element programmers have always lived in.

    Episode 2: The Catcher in the Rye

    February 2, 2015

    Phonies watch out. This discussion of J.D. Salinger's Catcher in The Rye is extra long. Who'd have guessed that John Siracusa would have so much to say? Check into a seedy hotel and have a listen, won't you?

  3. Paul Thomas Anderson on WTF

    Comedian Marc Maron is tackling the most complex philosophical question of our day - WTF? He'll get to the bottom of it with help from comedian friends, celebrity guests and the voices in his own head. You loved him on Morning Sedition. You kinda liked him on The Marc Maron Show. You tolerated him on Break Room Live. Now, embrace him on a show from which he cannot be fired - WTF with Marc Maron.

    Episode 210: Stefan Tilkov on Architecture and Micro Services

    Micro services is an emerging trend in software architecture that focuses on small, lightweight applications as a means to avoid large, unmaintainable, monolithic systems. This approach allows for individual technology stacks for each component and more resilient systems. Micro services uses well-known communication schemes such as REST but also require new technologies for the implementation. Methodologies like the Twelve-Factor App provide a set of rules for the deployment and operation of such systems. Teams take care of several of those services and deal with separate business domains to make the best use of Conway’s Law. These business domains provide a more coarse-grained software architecture.

    In this episode, Stefan Tilkov discusses these new approaches as well as their benefits and drawbacks with Eberhard Wolff. Stefan is CEO and Principal Consultant at innoQ in Germany. He works as a software architect and is a well-known speaker at international conferences. More recently, he has joined Software Engineering Radio as a host.
