The Software Process and Measurement Cast 603 features my interview with Austin Chadwick. Austin and I talked mobbing, but perhaps more importantly to me, Austin talked about the impact of finding joy in everything you do.

Delay! show art Delay!

Software Process and Measurement Cast

A quick update for readers and listeners: both the blog entries for Saturday and Sunday and the podcast episode scheduled for Sunday, May 31, 2020, are delayed due to issues with my month old laptop. It has decided to no longer boot (second time in one month that this issue has occurred). Since I was traveling this weekend I was not able to pull out the back-up machine until now. Rest assured, I will have things back on track beginning Tuesday.

Duncan and I talked about reactive design patterns, adopting a reactive architecture, and how writing a book changes your outlook on life.  It was a really cool discussion that covered technical and non-technical topics.

Note -- I am sorry for missing a week. I did not expect a new laptop (less than a month old) would have its motherboard and SSD fail. I am thankful for backups! 

Duncan’s Bio:

I specialize in the design and implementation of distributed systems using the tenets of the Reactive Manifesto with Scala, Akka, and the Typesafe stack. I believe in responsible design through functional programming with an abundance of test coverage. I love to code, present, and help others work through the challenges of distributed computing.
