In this week's This Developer's Life that's what I take a look at, from 3 perspectives:
(Ruby developer) talks about personal skills for solving problems, including the ability to ask a different question.
(Microsoft developer) talks about teams coming together as a 'band of brothers', solving problems that may, or may not, exist.
Tamar Cohen (Java developer) shares her story of the unsolvable bug - something she had to solve as the exploration of other planets depends on it. She works at NASA, programming planetary rovers.
finishes things off with a story about what happens when trouble finds you'
I've been asked by the producers of This American Life
to kindly change my logo as well as podcast title. In retrospect it seems rather obvious that I should have thought about this - but the short answer is that I didn't know if anyone would really care about this podcast. I also didn't expect the attention it's getting.
I changed the logo - a name change will come soon. Worry not - the RSS will stay intact, as will the iTunes link.
- I've remastered the episode and removed some of the music.
If you like any of the songs - please support my efforts to stay within 'Fair Use' by buying them' I'd very much appreciate it.
