    In this week's This Developer's Life that's what I take a look at, from 3 perspectives:

    Mike Moore

    (Ruby developer) talks about personal skills for solving problems, including the ability to ask a different question.

    Javier Lozano

    (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.

    Scott Hanselman

    finishes things off with a story about what happens when trouble finds you'

    Some Notes:

    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.

    Oops.

    I changed the logo - a name change will come soon. Worry not - the RSS will stay intact, as will the iTunes link.

    UPDATE

    • I've remastered the episode and removed some of the music.

    Soundtrack:

    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.
