The Stack Overflow Podcast - Transcripts
For more than a dozen years, the Stack Overflow Podcast has been exploring what it means to be a developer and how the art and practice of software programming is changing our world. From Rails to React, from Java to Node.js, we host important conversations and fascinating guests that will help you understand how technology is made and where it’s headed. Hosted by Ben Popper, Cassidy Williams, and Ceora Ford, the Stack Overflow Podcast is your home for all things code.
Cassidy and Ceora are joined by Ben Holmes and Nate Moore, developers on the core Astro platform, to talk about the new features they’re working on, what they love about docs, and the role of open source in their work.
On this sponsored episode, our fourth in the series with Intuit, Ben and Ryan chat with Deepthi Panthula, Senior Product Manager, and Shan Anwar, Principal Software Engineer, both of Intuit about how use self-serve chaos engineering tools to control the blast radius of failures, how game day tests and drills keep their systems resilient, and how their investment in open-source software powers their program.
The team talks about voice-to-code features, how game developers built accessibility into God of War, and why lab-grown meat is officially safe to eat (hail seitan!). Plus: this YouTube channel is a strong contender for the most entertaining robotics content on the internet.
The home team talks about how engineering blogs create real value for software companies, a game-changing accessibility controller for PS5, and how to build a universal computation machine using Tetris. Plus: Is this podcast responsible for Instagram’s decision to boot the shopping tab from the home feed? Maybe!
In this sponsored episode of the podcast, we talk with Anil Attuluri, principal software engineer, and Yasen Simeonov, senior product manager, both of Intuit, about how their engineering organization uses a service mesh to solve problems, letting their engineers stay focused on writing business logic. Along the way, we discuss how the service mesh keeps all the financial data secure, how it moves network traffic to where it needs to go, and the open source software they’ve written on top of the mesh.
On today's episode we chat with Prof. Gregory Kapfhammer, Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Allegheny College, and a specialist in the subject of flaky tests. He breaks down his definition of what makes a test flaky, how you can solve for it, and automated solutions that take some of the guesswork and busywork out of avoiding them altogether.
