  1. Tech Done Right Episode 43: Rubyists in Other Languages with James Edward Gray II and Steve Klabnik

    Ruby is great. But it’s not the best tool for everything. On this episode, I talk to James Edward Gray II and Steve Klabnik. Both James and Steve have made substantial contributions to the Ruby and Rails community, and they now both spend lots of time using other languages. We talk about what makes Rust and Elixir interesting for Ruby developers to learn, what some other interesting languages might be.

  2. Software Defined Talk Episode 130: CROSS-OVER BONUS! Christopher Luciano on Kubernetes & Istio - Software Defined Interviews

    A sample from Software Defined Interviews: Why does kubernetes even exist, why don’t existing things work just as well for it? And then what kind of applications can you run on it, at least following the original intentions. Once we sort that out, we talk about the same for Istio. We also discuss hospital IT and how large companies like IBM decide which open source projects to work on.

  3. SE Podcast #02 « Blog – Stack Exchange

    Jeff, I was on the bus listening this morning, and I couldn’t wait to get off it just so that I could tell you (even though you probably already know) that for cross-cutting concerns and patterns you find yourself applying over and over again, like what you describe with your caching, you should really consider using aspects. Seriously, it will make your life easier, and your code more maintainable and pretty.

    There are several frameworks for AOP in .Net. I have used (but am not affiliated with) an excellent one called PostSharp ( that will let you factor your “check if this is in the cache – otherwise go fetch”-pattern out into one single aspect that you can then apply to all the places where you use this. In this way, if you ever need to change your caching strategy, you’ll only need to change the code in one place, rather than in a thousand of them. This also applies for your error handling, your transaction handling, and your performance tracing (guerrilla style). Aspects totally changed my way of coding, for the better.

    Love that the podcast is back, can’t wait for next week’s instalment.

  6. Is There Scientific Evidence For “Learning Styles”?

  8. Episode 258 | Jeff Atwood - Sharing the House

    Jeff Atwood is an Indoor enthusiast.

    He’s a legendary blogger and co-founder of Stack Overflow and Discourse.

    He considers himself a reasonably experienced software developer with a particular interest in the human side of software development, as represented in his recommended developer reading list. Computers are fascinating machines, but they’re mostly a reflection of the people using them. In the art of software development, studying code isn’t enough; you have to study the people behind the software, too.

  10. Nietzsche and the Nazis – Stephen Hicks, Ph.D.

    A Personal View by Stephen Hicks, Ph.D.

    Ockham’s Razor Publishing, 2006, 2010.

    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) is famous for his statement that “God is dead” — and for the fact that Adolf Hitler and the Nazis claimed Nietzsche as one of their great inspirations.

    • Were the Nazis right to do so — or did they misappropriate Nietzsche’s philosophy?

    • What were the key elements of Hitler and the National Socialists’ political philosophy?

    • How did the Nazis come to power in a nation as educated and civilized as Germany?

    • What was Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophy — the philosophy of “Live dangerously” and “That which does not kill us makes us stronger”?

    • And to what extent did Nietzsche’s philosophy provide a foundation for the horrors perpetrated by the Nazis?
