We chat with GitLab’s CEO and co-founder Sid Sijbrandij, about the GitLab model, the changes they’ve made since Microsoft purchased GitHub, his thoughts on that acquisition, and his compelling case for 100% remote work. Special Guest: Sid Sijbrandij.
After a bit of CoffeeScript reminiscing we get down to data and design.And discuss why the bot market has collapsed, and how Google is running the table in AI. Plus a few classic Coder moments, feedback, and more.
We get fired up about cloud lock-in, and attempt to find some common ground. But the overall framework for today's conversation is the important bits for developers from this years Microsoft Build and Google I/O events.
Focusing on a niche can catastrophically backfire when the market shifts, and Mike goes into full reviewer mode this week. Plus fresh out of Build the guys share the initial impressions of Microsoft’s big event, discuss their growing fear of Amazon, and resources for learning .Net Core.
The death of desktop apps has reached the next stage, but the long transition to WebAssembly is going to hurt, and why the crushing demand for good enough will force us all to live a life of "Progressive Webbie Things".
We revisit IBM’s total dominance over the PC industry in the early 80s, how they got there, and how we can apply the IBM model to current events. Plus a batch of your feedback, and a defeated discussion about the state of all desktop operating systems and hardware kicked off by Apple’s taking our beer away.
What we can learn from Mike’s first business failing in 2014? Mike shares some necessary balance to today’s celebrity CEO “stories”. And we discuss how having naive expectations, avoiding conflict, and a lack of focus can sneak up on you and hurt your business. Also some tips on how to change your expectations, embrace conflict, and maybe even be a bit ruthless.
What is focus for the software industry? And is focus always a good thing, or can it lead to tunnel vision? Plus we spend a bit more time saluting Sun Microsystems for their contribution to our industry. Plus some feedback, a bit of weekly Hoopla, and more!
Sun Microsystems was fertile ground for what might be the largest developer upset in ten years. We look back at some of the real innovations Sun brought us, discuss the latest developments in Oracle's suit against Google, and the massive shift Microsoft announced today. This is one of those episodes we’ll be referencing back to for quite a while.
Mike and Chris find themselves at similar forks in the road with their business. And they both share raw observations from the front lines of some hard choices. Plus some weekly Hoopla, listener questions, and more!
It’s a special Coder Super show with big announcements and we look back at five years of Coder Radio. We have witnessed a massive shift of power. And it’s been happening right under developers noses. From the slowly won battle for control of the server, to Amazon’s to control over the Internet.
Mike may have cracked the testing pitch, the harsh reason the Junior Developer is dying & a nice batch of audience questions and follow up.
This week’s Coder Radio is just like mom’s cookin', but with a taste of Kotlin.
Why the hell did Microsoft open source PowerShell Core, .Net Core, Visual Studio Code? What could possibly be in it for them? Chris goes onsite to ask what’s been on everyone’s mind & figure out what their angle is.
Plus the massive leaps Kotlin seems to be making, your questions, our answers & more!
