  1. Gimlet Media | » #19 Diversity Report

    If you were to walk into Gimlet HQ, there are a few things you’d probably notice right off the bat. First, it’s crowded – like a grungy dorm room. Second, the lighting… it’s not great. Not many windows. Third, it’s white. Really white. 24 of Gimlet’s 27 employees are white. In this episode, we look at diversity (or lack thereof) at Gimlet. And we try to figure out what diversity should mean for the company going forward.

  3. Episode 41

    Our topic for Episode 37 was originally on scaling self-service of configuration management (the source code kind, not the infrastructure kind!) good practices, but quickly morphed into a discussion of what organizations need to pay attention and foster to support their tools teams in their often-cited mission of creating a self-service culture and self-service infrastructure. Paul and Sascha square off over the notions of traditional “service” teams and the newer notion of integrated “tools” (“DevOps?”) teams. We also touch on warning signs for automating self-service processes, including in the CM space, really examining how and why you convert which processes into self-service, ways to get teams to buy into your self-service initiatives, and what’s in the best interests of the entire system that is your software development organization. Join us as we discuss the finer points of:
