A caffeinated podcast about making and fixing mistakes in code.
Time traveller Cecelia Martinez discusses frontend development and debugging with Bojan and Jason. Even so, the question remains: is that programming book from the future that Bojan bought from the rummage sale going to be useful in the end?
Logs, anyone? Bojan and Jason chat with Itamar Turner-Trauring, the creator of the eliot logging library in Python.
Jason and a particularly floral Bojan chat with Reuven Lerner about teaching Python, and the worst bugs they've seen (and caused). Meanwhile, Annie tries to undo a unicorn magic glitch of her own.
Tomasz teaches Jason and Bojan how to navigate tradeoffs in code, while Annie struggles to manage the temporary unicorn horn she's been stuck with.
A portal outage won't stop Andrea Goulet and Naomi Ceder from coming into the café for coffee and conversation. Listen in as they discuss empathy in open source software development.
A little chaos is a wonderful thing. Miko Pawlikowski chats about chaos engineering, and how breaking things deliberately can actually make your code more stable. So how do you engineer this chaos in a helpful way, and how can you get buy-in from your manager and clients? Also, what's with the coffee today? Tune in to find out!…
Lily Mara pops into a slightly-more-chaotic-than-usual café to talk about Rust, and it's a far cry from the usual "let's rewrite everything" you may be expecting. While she chats with Bojan and Jason about refactoring to Rust, Jess and Annie try to figure out how to make the most of the latest magical glitch.…
Max Guernsey III stops in to discuss requirement writing, motion over progress, and how to prevent bugs, rather than fix them. How is that even possible? How is scrum involved? And what is the unicorn getting Bojan for his birthday? Listen in for these answers and more.
Despite the crimes against pizza being committed by the unicorn, Marco Faella comes by the café to discuss seven principles for making code better. Is it possible that software can be truly good? Can code golfing make you a better developer? Will the ANSI committee ban pineapple on pizza forever? Listen for the answers, and way too many anchovies.…
Programmers learn by doing, right? Felienne Hermans chats with Bojan and Jason about how READING code may actually be even more important. So why it's so hard to understand someone else's code? The answer may be found somewhere between Shakespeare, trombones, and your ABCs. Now if Annie and Jess can only get the patrons to stop hacking their new ro…
Sedat Kapanoglu swings by the café to talk about "street coding," while the café's new barista, Jess, arbitrates a wager between Bojan and Alan Turing. Listen in to learn more about the realities of changing requirements, the secret to true user privacy, and how it can be possible that monoliths aren't evil! (No, really!)…
Somewhere in the midst of an infinitely recursing café, Ned Batchelder joins Bojan and Jason to talk about the wiles of testing and code coverage, and how to answer questions online without scaring off the new kids.
As sheep flock to the café, JeanHeyd Meneide stops in to talk about the C and C++ Language Standards, programming history, and spooky bugs.
April Wensel talks compassion and empathy in coding, while Marta negotiates with an army of enraged squirrels.
Amidst magically changing decor, Naomi Ceder chats with Bojan and Jason about old school hacking and how to give great conference talks. And the unicorn sneezes on...
Amber Vanderburg and Laís Carvalho stop into the café to discuss debugging teams, promoting diversity, and creating safe spaces. Turns out, that can have a big impact on code, too! Meanwhile, Marta tries to keep the café's power supply stable.
What do MRI scans, wood turning, and interpersonal networking have in common? They're all topics that Joshua Jacobs knows a thing or five about. Join him, Bojan, and Jason as they discuss everything from floating-point numbers in supervillain plots to the possible reasons why a statistician might have a beef with a programmer.…
Vaidehi Joshi stops into the café to help fix the temporal stabilizer, and stays to chat with Jason and Bojan about teaching, teams, and where bugs come from in the first place.
Anastasiia Tymoshchuk joins Bojan and Jason to discuss all things team management: blame vs. accountability, debugging the cause of a problem, zombies, timers and...planking? Maybe SHE can figure out why the espresso machine is dispensing garlic sprinkles.
Amidst a unicorn-caused fall of fruit, guest Cheuk Ting Ho discusses what developer advocates (avocados?) really do, and the role they play in preventing bugs.
Guest Moshe Zadka joins Jason and Bojan to unpack the mystery surrounding what DevOps and site reliability engineering actually are.
Things are a bit timey-wimey at the café as M. Scott Ford chats with Bojan and Jason about legacy code, test refactoring, and what it means to be a "mender".
In the series premiere of The Bug Hunters Café, software developers Bojan Miletic and Jason C. McDonald chat about their bug hunting experiences across various languages, and some of their biggest coding mistakes.
Beginning March 2021, Bojan Miletic and Jason C. McDonald bring you a brand new podcast about bugs and software development. Grab your favorite hot beverage and join us for conversations with developers from all over the world.
