It's been out for about a week or two week. Old week-old excellent. I mean the have been the they release candidates but this is like the official as he is here so i'm likely going to end because obviously because of the time cast pop machine whibley. We're recording this in advance of time. So there's likely going to be time. Tony said hey. So when dot net call superseded by don't at five so please bear that in mind everyone who's listening we're regarding this couple months ahead of time but So festival before we talk about anything right. You've set yourself you've been in this this whole this industry for for almost twenty years right to vote for me. I'm you know. That's that's i mean for anyone. That's a long time right. That's that's a whole bunch of innovation that has happened since then like twenty years ago with talking about dot net was like an intranet based technology for inside of the business and now it runs a huge portion of the web. You've got as you. all suppose azure. I'm not sure how. What the official brennan nell right or wrong way okay. So we've got as your as you that that whole thing. And that's that's running dot net presumably or you can ruin your dot net thing on it and and we've gone from like i say we've gone from small web services to scaled micro services and video games and consoles all running dot net. You can never internet on fridge which is just blows my mind. I've gotta got a bunch of raspberry pies somewhere around here that are controlling my bet soon. I just bought a house. So we're excited about you. Know making our whole house smart enabled so i'm excited to start using dot net korir on a bunch of raspberry pies and the you know controlling controlling how long my stepdaughter gets to use the internet. So it's gonna be fun. It's brilliant is one of these technologies the just scales almost everywhere. Are you talked about the raspberry. Pi oko another respite. Pi four hundreds pien inside of a keyboard Is one big folk kit. And i've been using that to do sorts of crazy don net things of the past weekend. I'm teaching roberta. Who's not a developer code with it so it was like. Hey come on what i do. And he's just just the keyboard and while he came over before they Before the unfortuna- say over in the uk. We've had like a lockdown so nobody can go anywhere and so he came over a few days before that and we couldn't get a moment times we staying here for the duration so by the time you're listening to this. Hopefully he's going home. I thought to keep me busy. Teach him to wrestle. Code is totally all right. That's that's fun but then so if we're looking at almost twenty years in the industry what a in your opinion. Some of these innovations that have really changed the game. I mean we talked about chaperone being collaborative bringing everyone together. Dot net clearly has changed a whole bunch of stuff. Is it purely a microsoft thing you thinking or is it just a his aesthetic. I think for me. I i love tech but i also love the people in tack and i think for me. What's with what i've loved. That's change is sort of how we work together. So i remember when i first started in tak started a working for this We built the first installation of of of this insurance company allstate s- Their first online web presence So we built their i kind of web application and bad took hundreds and hundreds of people and it was all these very very very siloed teams. Right there is a huge team of leg database administrators. I have no idea what they did. There is a huge infrastructure team. And i have no idea i i mean i got a chance to like talk to some of them. But there's a huge infrastructure team. There is a huge Devops will be call them the the bill guys but the cuge build than a team and there was all these teams That came together to build this amazing web application but we were all really really really siloed. I felt like and It was such a very everything was so very very very specialized whereas you flash forward today and I feel like the development team and You know infrastructure engineers and Site reliability engineers while there there's different fancy titles for everyone but that teams like shrunk significantly and and and you know we all work really really well together. it's not kind of this like staunchy kind of separation of people it's it's a much more collaborative team. We work much closer together Because i think the tools and technologies have evolved in such a way that everyone can kind of sort of work together much better. So i think that part's been super super exciting. And because of that we were able to get you know it's it's more satisfying you can see applications getting released. You know all the time. I mean you get huge. Companies like netflix. They're releasing features like every day. So it's really exciting to see the pace and end the change of how like software and how technology evolves and then. I also think Just be the the amount of information and of you know how to get Involved in tak It's come to a place where i'm excited that so many people like you're talking about your brother. You're literally decision whom how to code and so literally you know a cup. After lockdown he can apply at microsoft and get a job at burnside. Apply to microsoft. So i i love this. I love this. I love because of i came from. I originally from chicago came from you. Know modest modest family and a lot of people around me or modest living. And so i really loved that technology has started to become a equalizer providing a lot more people opportunities To be able to code be able to change and thereby getting great jobs and then they're thereby kind of really changing their lives so it's not. I love seeing really kind of technology for all encoding for all This whole push for that. That's what's really got me like super excited about this industry now.

Widening the IT Talent Pool

"Explored some of the issues surrounding diversity. In tech or better stated lack of diversity in tech an area we have not dug into yet is the talent pipeline and the role it plays in building diversities in our teams and our companies. This is your host jeff ton in this episode. We're going to speak with nicole crane. Nicole is the ceo of tectonic a software development company that is a certified b. corp and which has diversity as part of its core mission. Tectonic is the creator of the first software development apprenticeship recognized by the department of labor. Welcome to the show nicole. Hi jeff thanks so much for having me super exciting yes. I'm really excited to dig into this. Because when i learned of tectonic in the role you were playing as having that apprenticeship. I just couldn't wait to dig in and understand more about how that works but before we do that. I'd love to know about your journey. What brought you to tectonic. And then we'll get into what tectonic does in itself. But i'd love to start with your journey turn so i actually started my career in silicon valley in I actually work for very large cable operator back in the day but i quickly moved into the startup world and you know all things technology back in the day regardless of industry and as i progressed through my career you know certainly started facing the same challenges that most companies did in that we couldn't find good talent or we were constantly competing for the same pool. People in about four years ago. I moved to boulder colorado for an opportunity with sas company and again the same thing. We're competing with talent especially when google moved into town and then You know. I was in the market again in looking and i came across tectonic and i was like what genius idea And having lived the side of trying to find talent fast enough in qualified enough of like. Wow i now have an opportunity to go from the other end and help others. That are facing the same challenge by extending the offering that tectonic head. So i was. I was super excited. By 'cause i was like i can't believe somebody hadn't thought about this sooner. So tell me about tectonic itself first of all. What do you do Tectonic do and give me a little bit of the background on the company. How came to to have such an important role in diversity cheer so tectonic is in outsourced custom development shop so we are All onshore here in the us and then we do everything from quick projects to staff augmentation technology teams and then the more interesting piece of that is the apprenticeship program that we run to effectively develop software developers so when heather terenzi started the company. Geez about fourteen years ago it was really just a development shop and she ran into the same problem. Everybody else has which is. Where do you find. Good talent that you can bring on. And she had this notion of well. Why don't i just teach people to do the job. Hence the apprenticeship was born about four years ago for three and a half four years ago and the idea was to bring folks in give them classroom training and then migrate them into the development teams where they can have the on the job learning portion that would allow them that real world experience and then progress through says where it started and then she also they ran into some situations where clients ra like. These folks are fantastic. Can we hire them and in the notion usually in most companies is non compete non solicitation. Because you want to find good people you don't wanna lose them but in my experience if people are going to leave they're going to leave regardless of what agreement you have with your client so why not enable that journey for somebody and that's really

What are you going to do. you're going to either. Go get a big dog. You're gonna put cameras up. You can put an alarm system. The problem we have today is that we're reactive versus proactive and cybersecurity has been that way for last year. I would say ten years of not fifteen years as very reactive and we're still reactive today. Even though we're being pushed outside of our comfort zone i mean. Think about kobe. Nineteen it was reactive right. We had to move quickly to To accommodate a remote workforce bauer coming back and doing what trying to figure out what holds that.

A Proposal To Burn Ethereum Transaction Fees

A Proposal To Burn Ethereum Transaction Fees

"So a proposal to ben a theory of transaction fees. This is coming from an e. Ip which i will link in the show notes feliciano e ip stands by theory improvements proposal. So now i'll do is. I'm going to read just the abstract on the summary from this thing. And then i'll give you my comments on it. So i actually came across this on git hub. This thing. was originally created in april two thousand and nineteen and has been in development since then and this is all according to harvard and give hope they've logged all of their calls developing development team and if the regulating the less meeting they had on this particular thing was The thet december twenty twenty. So this roy up to date in fact the less meeting that they had at the summary notes for the goal from the december he says generally feeling is that there was enough robust analysis and research with this improvement to begin discussing the next steps in the process i e how to move forward introducing too old cord avs and the theory of maintenance exciting. So that's how close they says to going onto the maintenance right. I think perfected over the of the last year or something booked with talking yet. So they're improvement. Proposal fifteen fifty nine fee market for one point out so. This is an improvement for the existing chain while ago gates shoes on so the simple summary is this is a transaction pricing mechanism. They includes a fixed pad block network feet that is bend and dynamically expands or contracts block sizes to deal with transient congestion. So what does that mean the problem. We have right now. They've got a difficult forming problems with the existing model. The fed will quote is a mismatch between volatility of transaction fee levels and the social cost transactions. The basically say that you one minute. You can have a Network free that's two hundred times what it was a minute ago right depending on just massive spikes in demand for network resources and stuff like that which seemed ridiculous. It's completely unpredictable. At second problem. Is it ends up. With needless delays for uses so does no good as socially unproductive as they call it. Where was the slack in the system to meet block by block demand while that would be met by so the listrik book sized that goes up if the blocks full and goes down if the blocks unfaithful pretty sweet scandal like the big oin difficulty. Adjustment mechanism is for blocksize. Rather than mining difficulty kind of kind of climate also says the problem is the inefficiencies of first price auctions. So what that means. Is that The minute of its to use sophisticated algorithms to estimate what fee to charge the uses of the wallet. And even though they're you know that just doesn't work. Right you end up overpaying the fee or you think you can get confirmation fifteen seconds and it takes three minutes and then you have to submit the transaction again with a high of face. Just it's just a mess right. And then the third thing is they will they call the instability of blue with no block reward. And they say well think about in the long run blockchain bitcoin. They intend to switch to rewarding minus entirely on transaction fees. You know when the bitcoin blocker would reaches next to nothing and they said will there were no issues with this kind of thing instability and so on selfish mining attack vectors and does no good solution for this at present. So what they're proposing to do is twofold one is have. This elects the block size thing where grows books of fold and shrinks of block saw you know novel and then also introduced a different pricing mechanism for transaction fees which would be that would be to to transaction fee going forward one would be this fixed a transaction fee pueblo. Which again go up and down with the blocksize. So you pay that and that base based transaction fee pet blog which would be absolutely known that would get burned right so like i spent boom johnson. Then if you wanna make sure that said your transaction gets into the blog than you can include an additional minor. Bribe as they call on top of the base fee said the minor didn't get any of the because we know that gets burned but they would get the minor bribe and the block reward so they still get two sources of revenue. The blocker would that remains the same They get the minor bribe and then they base fee gets burned. Okay well you might think well as because she's gonna cause the same problem as we've got now no it's not because was different now. Is that the book. Size is going to expand and contract so even if you don't include a minor bribe your wallet will know what the current fixed block transaction fee is and it will know what the next one is as well. So that means that in your wallet when meta mascow. Whatever will you're using. It will be able to quote you very precise transaction fees and the predictability of how soon that will go through and get confirmed. He's also much more set in than is now so that's does really right. You want the detail on how this works. Technically they've even got technical specification and a bunch of solidity code solidity code of how this will work including houses going to be backwards compatible. And how do you order. Transactions and blahdy blahdy. Bob so does that well. If you want my comments on this area. I think this should have been the design of a theory from day. One in fact. When i stood at dairy month old. This was high worked. A thought will gas right. if it's fuel surely is being burned and destroyed and took me quite a while to find out that that wasn't the case to find out the miners. Who gained all these fees on the blogger would which i four was bombing. The second thing is that if this does get implemented nobody does. It will be a massive economic boom for the theory token as an a theory in token hold. I'd be well pleased with this. Especially this would have a big effect on theory and stop the flow ratio. Which of course is top of my mind right. Now since i'm studying under safety and moose and his new book fiat standard. I'm a fan of the standard at any way. But you know that's what sir. I'm studying day to day right now. So i'm always thinking slow. Soaked floor ratio so this proposal would mean that the stock of a theory and will be constantly being reduced to offset some of the inflation for the mining rewards at the minute. He's just constantly inflating with booker woods. there's no destruction. there's no system level destruction anyway might accidentally send some their into the wrong address or whatever but the system doesn't doesn't create any deflation and this would do so on that point while we're talking about you but if i go to f gas station dot info it does have a leaderboard of the biggest guest banners right so actually lofton's articles the the They put on. The side is cold gas burners but as we know until this is implemented this proposal they don't banning gas at all alley just fees going through the contract to the minus with the number one. Let's call him guest bene- right now on the network is the union contract and in the last thirty days the amount of transaction fees going through that contract is twelve point. Seven million dollars worth of ethereal. Oh near enough to day. Two thousand f has been spent on transaction vs pretty significant amount if this proposal was implemented that would mean that in the last days unique swap would be responsible for destroying the two thousand ethereal just brilliant bending they two thousand theorem just from the fees that uses paint to use union swamp great and then tether another twenty six thousand theory would be banned in the last days because of that. So if you wanna in theory times these they say two thousand if theory of the what would ban twenty six thousand. That ted would ban if you want in. Us dollar terms it means units will be bending fifteen million dollars of theorem everyday days and tether will be betting ten million everyday days. I think those would go though. Remember is the capacity of the network would increase with this elastic book size so every time a block is full the next book slightly bigger so absolutely balmy so when when when the network is congested well more transactions go through every book which means more theory and guest band so the busy of the network is the more fees get panda. The big of the fees is self fulfilling prophecy. So i'm of course i'm talking from an economic point of view. If you're in a theory of togo you'd you definitely want this to be implemented because it it. It makes a theory more scarce doesn't it because it's bending the stalk of a theory all the time

It's team player base is dwindling with with less than two thousand players online as of this writing. Players want some sort of roadmap showing what new content is coming in win. What they've gotten is a bit vaguer developer. Crystal Dynamics is dedicated to delivering new story in mission content for the game, but it's not clear when that's going to happen I reached out to crystalline Amex earlier today regarding the lack of content and dwindling player base in response the developer sent a lengthy statement from studio heads. Scott amost. We're not gonNA read all of it but I'll give you a few pieces of here. At to our players every day we fight to make the best game possible our community. We have a great community management team across on Amex and squaring X. who funnel all your concerns, suggestions, and feedback to the development team. Daily we are listening we are making fixes, improvements and additions as fast as we safely can to make Marvel's avengers the game we aspire to be. As such, we have a number of new content pieces coming in the weeks ahead including a totally new warzone mission type CAU- tacking on riffs a new outpost as jumping off point for the new story missions in the future and aims cloning lab, which requires a coordinated high level group of four players to beat the new.

How I Built Resilience: Sandra Oh Lin of KiwiCo

"On these episodes, we talk with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're coping during this very challenging time and today we're gonNA hear from Sandra. Olen, the founder and CEO of Kiko Kiko makes arts and science projects for kids and ships them out in monthly subscription boxes or crates in March when students began learning from home Sandra's company a spike in orders, and it's now shipped over twenty million boxes around the world I spoke with. Sandra from her home. In the bay area is trying to keep up with demand. Tell us a little bit more about Kiwi Co for people who don't know what what you do tell us about your your company. Yeah. So we design and deliver hands on experiences for kids, kids of all ages. So we have different experiences and products that we develop for Newborns and infants alway through to kids at heart. So teens and even grown ups and these hands on experiences they range. So science experiments, games, kids making play projects that encourage imaginative play. And they're all center around this idea of how can we encourage kids to see themselves as makers And I. Think the the best known as the Kiwi crate and inside like you get pipe cleaners and different OV- like Styrofoam balls and I think that's probably the best known product that you guys make. Right the Kiwi crate. Yeah. Yeah. I mean that's our flagship line. So qe crate is geared for early elementary age kids. So five to eight and it's very project base for Kiwi crate. There are at least two different projects and it's usually one that's a science and engineering focused project and one. That's more be more of an art in creativity designed focus project. So let's say one project overall. It's about arcades and one project might be you create a mechanical arcade cloth that you can actually grab things with and the other side of the crate might be a project where you're making your own yarn pom Pom Creatures, and then you're actually taking your claw, you're trying to grab those creatures as well as whatever else is around your house too. So it's a combination of discoveries along with hopefully A. Little Bit of delight and a whole bunch of fun which I love and tell me I i. know that you launched this in twenty eleven and at the time I guess you were like you were in charge of the fashion portfolio. For Ebay. How did the idea come to you? So it was born mainly out of personal needs. So my my career has spanned consumer products and technology mostly ECOMMERCE. So it started my career in India proctor and gamble and then had been at pay pal at. Ebay but when we started the company, so two thousand eleven, my kids, my oldest two kids were almost three and almost five and I really want to give them especially the hands on activities. It was a way for them to really see themselves as producers and not just a passive consumers as kids who could actually kind of problem solve and make something, and so I started to pull together different and inspiration and I was like, Oh, my gosh, is taking a long time like I need to. Amortize. My effort and so I would invite friends and their kids, and one of the MOMS actually said, you should start a business around this and it was one of those things where I think long story short is that we found that there are a lot of parents who are well intentioned very busy. They want enriching activities for their kids and if it can come. To them in a convenient format from a trusted brand, and that's something that actually really resonates and then if you think about it from a business perspective, if you can get a subscription service to work, it works really well right and so if you consider all the elements of subscription service or you're considering lifetime value if you're able to drive down their cost of Acquisition then you're able to provide something that is not only valuable to the customer, but ends up being something that works really well all the business side to I I imagine when the Middlesex business for a moment I mean I imagine that when it became clear that the pandemic was GonNa shut down huge parts of the economy like most business owners you probably. Anticipated a downturn for Your Business and first of all, how did you prepare for that possibility? Well, to be completely frank, it was a little bit of madness say kind of the beginning. So we were a little bit ahead of the curve and having folks work remotely. But then as people started to shelter in place was definitely a scramble you know we had to see. What the impact would be to the business, and so we've definitely became more conservative. So very quickly we decided to basically pull back or remain conservative on marketing spend. We were looking at things like hiring and figuring out what we wanted to do that. So we held on hiring but then we're also tracking the business and what we actually started to see pretty. Quickly is a pretty decent uptick in the business. I think the combination of parents being home needing something to engage kids we happen to be a good solution, and so we started to see an uptick in the business and then accordingly had managed to the business based on that demand at a pretty dramatic to I think, right? Yeah. So I think you had mentioned. I kind of in the beginning that we shipped out over twenty million crates now, and so if you look at the first ten million crates, we hit that Mark Actually in January twenty nineteen, and then in the next eighteen months or so we actually shipped out another ten million crates and you can imagine kind of the celebration of the business and some of that. Is Because of acceleration that we saw on the business given the pandemic and the demand that was their I'm not surprised spoke with the CEO of dream box who told us that they have seen a doubling of on boarding on onto their platform it's a math platform for elementary school kids. I spoke to Sal Khan a few days ago of founder, the Khan Academy. I mean, they're seeing record numbers of students on their platform I mean as you have seen this kind of surge in demand, how have you been able to meet that demand? I mean, for example, have you had any challenges sourcing supplies? Yeah. So we've definitely had different challenges associated with with meeting the demand I. Think the great thing is that our team has been incredibly responsive and making sure that we shoring supply chain putting in the appropriate orders to make sure that we had the inventory available and I think when it's kind of regular times. To a certain extent, it's almost like your utilities or you know you expect the water to be there in the electricity work and similarly expect that you're going to have product to ship, and so we had to be very proactive about making sure that some of these things that we may have taken for granted and pass were there available to us that we could actually serve the community fulfillment was definitely another area that we had to really shore. Up and make sure that we have the capacity and then customer care I. Mean Obviously we WanNa do an excellent job of serving the customer and making sure that their questions are answered etc and so there was a certain amount of capacity that we were planning for in March April Etcetera May June, and so we had actually scaled add up pretty significantly. Let's go to some questions we're getting in from folks watching system cows, Zimmer he asks via twitter. How do you develop your kids and how do you test them with kids? Yeah. So we have interestingly to product design and development teams. So we have a physical product design and development team, and then we have a digital. So the digital is creating ecommerce platform or content platform. So the software and then our physical product design team is really comprised of folks with mechanical engineering backgrounds, industrial design. We have someone who actually worked on space satellite system. This is, and so these are the folks who are accepting the different projects that could to the kids prototyping testing, etc, and a big part of what we've done at Kiko even since you started it in my garage actually is that we are always testing but children. So in every office that we've had, we have a sizable room and four to eight times a week kids are coming in to test the products at various stages and that is. Something that is absolutely critical for us. We may assume that a project may be engaging. It may not. We may assume that a material is something that is malleable enough for preschoolers hands, but it may not be, and so it's just a critical step in. So as we've actually been working remotely, that was a big challenge to figure out, and so it's been pretty amazing. We quickly decided to actually purchase three D. Printers, laser cutters, etc that we. Then distributed to different product designers, and then on the testing side, we ended up actually either shipping or having a hand off locations for kids to pick up and test materials, and then do them via video conference and so we actually ask for different camera angles to see what the kids are doing because depending on the age of the kid it's not so much that they're going to tell you what's going on you actually have to observe. What's going on in? So that's definitely been an area where we've had to figure out how to get things

"Welcome back to another edition of the Fitness Lab Pittsburgh Aka fit lab PGE podcast. We are a podcast that has ethos moving a lifestyle not just an activity. We want to give a big shoutout to Richard Butler for. US to today's guest and a big shout out to today's guests for being one of the first fit loud pg guests who has agreed to appear via zoom rather than US travelling to her or her traveling to us. Thanks covid for decreasing our ability to cross bridges and go through tunnels to meet people. We can still take advantage of technology learn about neat movement events in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania area today we are with justice. Jessica Curry. She is the director of special events for the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania, and we're going to find out about how she got involved with the Special Olympics. What exactly the Special Olympics is. If you don't know and I know I, WanNa know how the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania ended up headquartered. In Pittsburgh I was surprised to learn that what I was doing my research and I think she's got a special events coming up. This got an acronym as far as that you could participate in virtually with other special Olympic athletes. So Jessica, thanks for taking time to talk to loud PG H. Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate it. Bye Favorite question I always want to ask people that I interviewed for PGA H. in that I always do is are you a Pittsburgh native if you're a Pittsburgh native? Why are you still here if you're not a Pittsburgh native, what brought you to? Pittsburgh. I am I have a Pittsburgh native born raised. And Baptized on Super Bowl Sunday. So you know Pittsburgh girl and. Nineteen seventies I'm giving away my age now but yeah, Pittsburgh girl born and raised scold out of state and coming back about it's probably been about fifteen years now that I've been back in the city of Pittsburgh but I did the unthinkable. I was in North Hills kid and actually crossed a tunnel and went through earth room whether tunnel cross the bridge I believe just moved South Hills when we came back, which apparently is something you don't do here. I know he's interviewed a couple of people who've done that and one of them said that her mother still refuses to come see her in the South Hills from the North Hills and say one way trade or a one way car ride that way because mom apparently does not go south and great. It's fifteen minutes. It's such an easy drive. Really. and. I'm always curious when we interview people for this. What draw drew you into being involved with what you do your with these Special Olympics what was your background to get you in this where you somebody who you are in high school made you you took an adapted class or volunteer said boy this is a really neat thing I want to be involved with this or is that something that maybe happened afterwards or a little bit later on in life? He also interestingly I did not study any kind of adaptive movement or anything like that through high school or college my degree's actually. Public speaking and writing. And I worked for the development team. So I, do a lot of both development. We obviously do fundraising for Special Olympics had been working in nonprofit for a long time if worked for a substance abuse clinic in the animal shelter. And then most recently Special Olympics I've been here for five years now and. When I work for a nonprofit, having a mission having 'cause is something that's really important to me. If I'M GONNA give all he knows so much time and attention. It's GonNa have to be to something that I really truly believe in the Organization is 'cause is absolutely something that I do believe in I grew up with a cousin who is an athlete and were only six months apart. So this organization has actually been part of my family and my life since we were children. Our Age starts about seven where we start training younger children on appropriate eating habits. It's a young athletes program than getting them ready, and then they can start participating as they get older. So she had started at a very young age and is still active where. We're going to be forty five. So, she's been doing this for a really long time. So this is literally been in my life forever. Here's. Ano- know I WANNA learn more about that because I seem to recall at some point reading somewhere in a blog or something like that that there are some special Olympic athletes who are sixty plus years old who have probably been competing even longer than your cousin is yeah. Yeah we do. We have athletes ranging in age from seven to into their eighties. We are fit lab Pittsburgh were podcast that promotes movement. We always like to find out the activities that people. Do themselves that we interview even if they're working for specific companies or specific specific on prophets, I, know we interviewed a lady in the past he said, well, I'm not really an athlete I dance three or four times a month and I swim I walk US I don't know you are an athlete I. Tell people when I teach health classes at universities like your goal is to be able to do whatever you WanNa do when you WanNa do literally until the day you die not have that fear. So I'm curious. When you were growing up, were you in active can't or are you somebody who wasn't active and maybe became active a little later on in life? Yeah. Always been inactive kid I always participated in sports all different Tennis softball. docker. you name it. I was never afraid to try it. Physical activity was something for me is just a very natural part of my life and something that comes easily to be danced in gymnastics for very long time since I was little and. That type of physical movement is something that just has always been very natural and very comfortable for me, and if kept doing things as I've gotten older definitely changed the things I can't do they used to. Buy I'm still still active still out Aaron Indefinitely. Still. Moving.

Interview with Aaron Upright, cofounder of Zenhub

"I think it's important to recognize. That this is really hard problem to solve in that. There's multiple solutions. probably I have. I don't know. Maybe don't agree with that, but I think there's multiple solutions at depends on your team. It depends on You know what works best for your particular type of product. It's interesting that you are building a product that enables other people to build their products. Have you found that? The people who are using as in hub are building particular types of products. Are they building MVP stuff, or are they working more towards in the larger into the scale? Were there multiple iterations in what do you think is is kind of the sweet spot for your product? Yeah, it's a really good question. I think when we first started that our interpretation of who our audience would be as much different than it actually ended up being an. Now even completely different is. We've kind of grown as a business evolved our product as well. When we first started then how I think because of the way that we really integrated into source code management platform being hub. That this kind of style of project management could be really powerful war on teens that were really focused around in smaller products are really maybe focused around bringing products to market, had smaller development teams, and really just wanted to work in an autonomous way, but what we actually found that there was a lot of teams out there that were actually struggling to manage their. Their projects in a way that we're more connected to their code basin that didn't necessarily correlate with the size of the team or the complexity of the project. We started to see teams from all different sizes of organizations, all different verticals in industries that were really interested in using this as a solution to help bring project management closer to the code and so. It's. It's really interesting, you know. We thought that this would definitely be a a tool for the. Small to mid market companies, but really you know we have representation across a lot of very forward thinking startups, but also some massive massive customers in fortune, fifty fortune ten companies, even that are using this at a really transform the way that they're building software. So that's been been really exciting that we get to interact with so many different types of audiences in so many different types of companies, even that are building so many different things in so many different spaces makes total sense I think. It's helpful for people to know kind of what the philosophy is before we continue this discussion because I think we're going to get into some some important questions about for example, making estimates and you know establishing reference points and that kind of thing, so can you of given a maybe a thirty thousand foot view of what is the philosophy behind Zinn hub? Yeah, it's a great question. So I think to give a little bit of background around who we are as a tool on kind of what we do is while we are a project management solution. Really End to end. That's built in get hub in really that comes back to this core philosophy that we have is is. Our have of. How do we make life? It easy as possible for developers in allow them to really focus on that meaningful work. That's really a core part of our mission in that that concept of focusing on meaningful work is actually something that we've included in our mission as well. You know what I mean by meaningful work is. Is that type of work were? Were developers are actually you know coding and and spending time on that rather than updating project management tool in really wanted to take a lot of those really high friction parts of the process of writing and developing code or or developing software. We're having to go back and update project management tools to keep the organization informed in to kind of make sure that the. The project is moving in the right direction so a really core philosophy for us as a product is. How do we help? The people that are using our products spend more time doing that meaningful work more time doing the work that they love rather than having to update different tools and keep these systems and processes up to date for the rest of the organization.

"What are the upcoming features? Gabon mobile that you're focused on right now. Some of the big ones Bryan talked a little bit about the notifications support I. think that's pretty important to us right now. One of the big ones that we are committed to to reaching at least a V., one of support by the end of the year would be get enterprise support. And get help has a ton of of large customers they use on premises. Installs of enterprise to build build APPs to build their tools to just run their software development teams. Some of these companies you know have tens of thousands of employees, and we really WANNA find a way so that those people can also just as much as the open source, open source or get hub enterprise cloud users have been able to use our APP to build and collaborate on software. We want to do the same for on premise customers. Well. Is there anything else that you guys would like to add about where you see? Get hub going or what changes you anticipate around the Social Network for developers? Think, we're seeing just more and more this liberation from the laptop and the desktop and I think if we project out, you can just imagine the workflows we've talked about becoming better and smoother and faster around triaging and collaborating reviewing discovering I think we can just go so deep. There I'm excited also about like the massive amount of people who have yet to discover get hub, and who aren't developers yet, and what role can get help and like. Finding them projects to learn from and contribute to overall just build more software better faster more securely. It's like this really virtuous cycle that I think we can speed up and make it feel a lot more fluid away from a computer, because not everybody has five thousand dollar Mac books like if we can, but that on a phone, we unlock a lot of software development capabilities for a lot more people, so it's a little, high level and vague and May tibial fluffy answer, but that really is our our approaching this like we can see a lot more activity. HAPPENING ON MOBILE APPS over time, and as people transition to just not needing that keyboard all the time.

Defining AI Readiness

Artificial Intelligence in Industry

Defining AI Readiness

"So Joel before we start talking about companies caught up when it comes to a readiness think it's important to get your thoughts on what Ai Readiness implies one of the pillars one of the parts of readiness at an enterprise level. Yeah When it comes to think through a readiness to pieces to it. The first is typical. And understanding the science of machine learning. And I think that is one. That's what the different choices out there. L. Services Today. You can go on a journey. With, if you've got that scientists in house, you can begin to use some of the really powerful advanced machinery tools. Fantastic, but there's also been a lot of investments made around managed. Ai Services that can take care of a lot of the data size for you so that what you really have to focus on the customer. And bringing the right data to the problem and allowing these services. To help you find the answers and help you move faster as your folks get skilled up and get more and more bad data science expertise underneath their belt. I think the other piece though has really interesting it as you think about readiness, though is the readiness of the business, because what's really important about machine, learning is that it's not just a technical problem. And what I chat with customers, a lot about is really making sure that S-. When we sit down to talk about she learning problems, and what's what machine learning problems, WanNa tackle within an organization. Is that. We have both business experts, subject matter experts and technical at the table. Because you have so much such machine learning success is based on the data that you bring to the problem and understanding what data is important. As well as understanding. What actually makes for a good prediction. If we build a model that recommends things that just aren't feasible. Don't make sense in the context of the business than that models on helpful. And so. Really assessing that both the business organization. He's value in machine. Learning the Technical Organization is ready to pursue and invest in it are two has of that readiness problem that customers need to consider and make sure that both sides of the organization are on board. Who after that Kral? Okay. This is an interesting way of slicing it I've had a lot of people put together more pieces, but I kinda like this. Really simple serve two halves to the whole deal. You're talking just to clarify here. The tech side of the house, as it were and the business side of the House as it were with us. Be The colloquial way to refer to these these parts and kind of their agreement and communication. Yeah I. Mean I think an example here would be? If the organization was resume parcels. And say that we really want to begin to engage in. Providing better, pro recommendations or better offers to our customers or better content if we're warm and media space, it's really important that in that case your product teens or your marketing teams are on board that initiative at they're going to be at the table helping craft one best solutions going to look like as much as it is of course that the development teams at the table thinking through how to implement it. Because? When you have these machine learning solution set, you're building to go. Do these things like engage your customers a much better way? These are now. Customer facing business outcomes that you're trying to pursue and making sure that these business experts are there with you and helping to guides, the solution on that I found to be really important and making sure that the the models that get bills are actually bottles that get used. Yeah the cross functional Ai, team dynamic is brand new for a lot of enterprises, especially at the level that Ai requires, we often talk about the education gap of the subject matter experts, even knowing their needed I'm more or the business leadership, understanding basic a I use cases basic AI terminology understanding how these teams to work the point that you just said there that you can't just give them the specs and let him off in a room, and then they plug it in. You know it's. It's not a plug in here. There's a pretty pretty iterative collaborative process to happen to do anything recommend products. deliver service. What is closing education? Gaps look like talking about the business side of the house. I'm wondering if you. Have noticed anything about what companies are doing and try to level up that part of the I. Guess the understanding. Gap Yeah. There's an pattern that I've seen emerge within organizations beginning through this. Actually just to take a step back, I think what's been really interesting to watch. In is the evolution of machine learning over the past few years. Because? Quite honestly, your went from machine learning being an aspirational technology to something. That's mainstream extremely fast. We're finding that to your point. There is a lot of education has to happen.

I do the blogging. I have we have a podcast about wordpress four photographer so I hope that that kind of stuff right. So I'm I'm sort of the email marketing. It's kind of that. That guy on the guy who gets to your the thing I was hanging out with you. Get to be the face of the company. That's cool. Well let's talk about that so I have the tease. I talked a little bit about wordpress and galleries and all that stuff. So one of the reasons why you and I are having this interviews and you guys who you're about to or you have already depending on where you watch. This rolled out the ability for photographers to kind of in a way replicate what some other players in the cloud. Image storage space. You're doing like smug Mug and Pixie set excetera in terms of building galleries and assigning priceless to those galleries and allowing customers to come in and purchase from either a password or unpasteurized protected area. Which what you told me before. We even started that up until just now has not been possible. Take me through that. Because I'm one of those people I use Mug Mug. I still have my Pixie set account as well and some others And I'm a wordpress user. This week in photo is run on wordpress. Obviously be nice to have the power to have that in house to me. GimMe Gimme the gist of what you guys built. Yes so as you said Thirty thirty five percent of the Internet runs on wordpress. So thirty five percent of photographers are using wordpress. And many of them are using wordpress alongside something like smug monk and it's all good and well if that's what you want but for photographers. Who Want to do everything in one platform that they control? That is a wordpress site. You now have the solution to not only sell in and sell prints and digital downloads. But the prince you have the option to automatically had this refilled by a print lap and the first pre lab we integrated with is White House custom color. Nice and more will be on the way of course but for now. That's that's the only one that's there and the cool part is that yes next Gen gallery built on is a Free Plug. It has about a million active users. It's one of the most popular press ins ever. Definitely the most popular alary plugging is the fastest gallery plug in and it's more than just your typical gallery. Plugin display your photos. It has a full gallery management system in it and that system kind of gives you this it will. It definitely gives you the separation of galleries and not. Everything's in one media library folder. It's all separated and it allows you to fine-tune everything to put in different image tags. Which will import your exit data. So you'll have any keywords. What become tex which means you can create galleries based on tags? If you want we have You know titles and descriptions and things like that and when you the this gallery that you've created and you want to attach a priceless it so you create a price list as some prince from the lab. Some print options and we by default automatically pick the most popular prince from the lab. And then you can add more. You can even do at all if you want to destroy everything once and and that's your price list. If you want to add digital download you can do that and you attach that priceless to the gallery and you once you sell you sell your Princeton. You don't think about the part of come mattress. You don't have to think about The the the the printing the the the editing that comes after that 'cause you know you don't have to worry about replacing inks all that fun stuff on that. So you know like I said before having having been in being a user of these cloud based services the in this is a completely appropriate question especially for someone who's intimate with wordpress and and image making and how stuff goes but the word press. Yeah it's it's almost the defacto standard on the web for for many many many sites out there myself my my sites included but the double edged sword of wordpress is giants got his amazing robust community. Anything that you can imagine you can build and or configured to do but in my opinion or in my experience that's also the Achilles heel of wordpress because there's always updates and plug in conflicts and you know okay you. You're not really bill. If for me it feels like you're not really building on a on a stable foundation. You're building on a foundation that can reconfigures itself every now and then you gotTa make sure everything that's on top of it is good to go. How does how do you guys mitigate that with next Gen and Gal next-gen Gallery and the other services you offer so that if I do put my mission critical business and galleries up there and I have a bride? That's coming in that. Wants to see and by prince she's going to be able to see those and give me money so. I just what you said that that there's sort of this Achilles heel I like to say that We're presses amazing because it can literally do anything but it's also a sometimes a pain the butt because it can literally do anything from so so yes there can be conflicts with different plug ins. Yes you have to worry about. Updates at image league on top of potential complex all the time we get a lot of people coming in that might have a bug here and there and we have a team that troubleshoot said and and can handle those and we have a development team that is fast and we will address any conflicts or bugs that come up that are that need immediate attention if you're having if we're having a conflict with a plugin like you which has happened in the past then that's a plugin that is popular enough. We have to address it. We know that plug in is installed in pretty much every photographers website. We have to fix it. So but if it's if it's a conflict with the plug and then might have a hundred users total well that's not a priority because unfortunately there's not many people using a small amount of people. Yeah yeah so we have to go with with what is impacting the majority

Microsoft Xbox Series X News

"Confirms. It's twenty twenty plans and teases the xbox series XS boot up sound Microsoft shared a blog post this morning setting the table for the upcoming year. While reminding everyone that there will be a stream on Thursday showcasing xbox series X. Games. There are a few specific big beats from the blog. Post though event on Thursday is apparently the first of many planned monthly events quoting from the blog post starting with the May seventh episode of inside. Xbox we will be showcasing what happens next in the world of xbox every month which is why we're calling it. Xbox twenty twenty. These monthly moments will take place throughout the rest of the year and will be away for us to engage connect and celebrate with you about what's in store for the next generation of gaming including what's next for xbox series xbox Game Studios xbox Game Pass and Project X Cloud. Every month will bring something different. Stay tuned to xbox wire for more details the post also touches on Halo Infinite with Microsoft writing our goal remains to launch xbox series x and Halo Infinite. This holiday which says two things to me one is. They have no plans to delay anything yet. Despite various Kovic nineteen issues and to Microsoft is putting the two side by side as a package which I think is smart. The best way to launch a new system is to couple it with a great gain like a breath of the wild or halo combat evolved which is what the original xbox launched with the xbox series acts and halo infinite seemed to go hand in hand to the point where. I wonder if one was to get delayed. Maybe it would mean that both got delayed. Microsoft also writes in the block post in July. We will dedicate time to focus on the incredible games coming from xbox game studios a number of our studio teams are looking forward to sharing. I looks at New gameplay insights from development teams being optimized for xbox series X and brand new game announcements. We cannot wait to share this. Initial look at what some of those teams are working on this to me says we can expect another big reveal of various games in July which is passed the somewhat arbitrary former e. three June zone but still ahead of the launch of the new console. It also says to me that this is where the big reveals will happen and we might not see any major game reveals or announcements on Thursday. But I am eager to be wrong. I hope Thursday is a showcase for a lot of really exciting stuff. One of the most interesting parts of the block post though is a sixteen second video that plays what may be the xbox series XS boot up sound. Microsoft doesn't explicitly say this is the xbox series XS boot up sound but the videos description on youtube reads boot up a new episode of inside xbox. This Thursday may seventh at eight. Pm Pacific Time for a first look at gameplay from our partners for the xbox series x and then if you turn on the closed captions on the Youtube video of the sound reads new xbox sound in brackets. Here's what it sounds like. A if it is in fact the XBOX series XS boot up sound which I think it is then. I think this is a fun way to reveal it. It's one of those small things that you're curious about when it comes to a new console and ahead of any major revelations related to the system. I like learning what the thing will sowed like when I turn it

"So often times when there is resistance to change when people start seeing the effect of change and so that might be in their own skill sets, but it might also be in your ability as an organization to release things faster dog. Or you know to to you know, the massive reduction of Escape defects cuz you had moved things left or so. What sort of what sort of metrics do you look at? And do you use those metrics to sort of create that enthusiasm and drive success? Sure. So we do a pretty big Matrix program that we're and I always say we're starting it. We always have always used metrics but we've used more of the traditional activity or task-based metrics what we're trying to move is more into in values to metrics and in one mistake that that I guess I'm responsible for is I kept calling him that box metrics and I should have rebranded them internally as before value delivery metrics where it's your how often how long it takes you to go from checked in code until it gets a customer your frequency of delivery You're a Mean Time to resolve and your frequency of change failure. So the poor metrics that the cold war is going to happen devastated that popped off. We're trying to really move towards into end metrics because it doesn't matter. You know how quickly one person does things it is how quickly they move through the value stream in for example in the old waterfall World. It might look really good. If a development team dropped their time from four weeks to three but they've added six weeks to the QA team and then two more weeks to the monitoring team. Are you really saving anything? There's no but if you would even if but if you were to say hey, look at them being spent one more week and we can save six weeks down Downstream. That's much better. But unless you're really looking at the whole value screen. You don't always see those efficiency gains. I know for sure and I really like, you know using that term value and really driving this as value and and unfamiliar with those metrics and and and appreciate them quite a lot. It's our ability to release. It's our ability to get stuff to customers and and and you know, the faster we can do that the the better assuming we're meeting those quad. Requirements and you know, so it's all interwoven. But so so are there are there, you know, you you set off over time. You said Targets on these metrics. Is there a a drive to you know release in a week or I mean and know there's many different platforms. You probably work with that have their own historical construction and other concerns and compliance concerns about changing but often times or do you you do you rally the team towards metrics or it's it's more of a month, you know over over-arching theme..

"Established company, or maybe you are adopting a project from someone else, or you may even be entering into an open source project. And as you enter into that project, you face a whole mountain of. Understanding gaps. You have to develop some kind of sense for the culture of the people who have worked on that software. He have to develop a sense of places in the software that. Have a lot of churn. The have a lot of change happening, dangerous places, places where people are afraid to make changes, perhaps places where people are less afraid to make changes. In how alternately the software got this way. How did he get to the place that it's at today, both good and bad. I don't have a perfect data set to prove this theory, but I do have anecdote. And I think a lot of developers at least have experienced a similar event a similar project. And it does agree with the way that people work. The average software project, I would imagine looks a little bit something like this. If places in that software that are new and they're exciting, the people who are working on those new and exciting things. They're probably doing two things, one writing code that gets the job done and to quickly refashioning some of that new code so that this new area, this exciting area. It's perhaps the cleanest part of the project. And then you're going to have other places in the code that are simple. They make a lot of sense, and therefore because they've been seen so many times because they're straightforward, they're also relatively clean. These areas tend to have tests that cover them because the tests are easy to explain. The use case is easy to explain. There's probably some documentation though. It's probably spotty. Unfortunately, the arguments is probably not going to cover every single method every single class every single component every use case. And it's very likely that some of those methods or classes or components are use cases have changed since that documentation was written and most likely than documentation didn't get updated win. Those things changed. And if your project is like most other projects than you probably have some tests that really don't make a lot of sense, they work, but you're not really sure what they're testing. They seem to be just kind of adding to the coverage metrics, and then you have other tests that work very well. In fact, you probably have a small number of very. Involved in a Gration tests. These took a long time to write. Maybe they're relying on a significant number of other libraries or some intense setup tactfully test that integration and those tests are things that you're very proud of and you protect as development team, and then there's other places where in order to write a test for that particular feature, you would need to go through the same rigor as you did and those particularly important integration tests, but we haven't done so for one reason or another, those other areas are not nearly as well covered as some areas are. And if you're code is like most code and you probably have some really weird language, both in the documentation and in the code itself, some strange naming perhaps some words that the company that the software was developed four or the group of people or the platform that the software was developed. For those words, the language of those people that culture has made its way into the coat. And finally, you likely have some areas of the code that have a lot of obstruction. A lot of indirection. The things that are loading are passing through a whole host, a long list of perhaps parent classes. For example, maybe there's a lot of inheritance or maybe there's a lot of deeply nested composition that's happening. Perhaps your rendering tree is really quite deep even though in a given file looks shallow. And so to wrap your mind around this code base to understand everything that's happening in this code base and to be able to work on this, go base with confidence can be really intimidating and the way that it got this way. The the thing that happened to put this code in this state. Is really what happens in every project. It's very simple. It's the fact that humans are taking some kind of direction and implementing that direction in code. The reality is that humans approach coding as humans..

"The development team is aware and we'll be addressing this in the future. So I wouldn't stress out too much about these various tests that you're seeing online right now because I think it's just too early to even really know. And honestly, I mean, if you were going to be rendering a bunch of video, would you also start playing fortnight at the same time? No, you wouldn't? Because that was only I don't know who you saw do that. I didn't see anyone doing that. Same thing. Most video editors know when you're rendering you don't do anything else. You leave your computer alone, right? I'm just saying the win these tests are they're using these things in sort of ridiculous ways. I think a lot of times they're doing things that you wouldn't normally do. And so I don't know just point taking the are trying to push the computer to the max to see where where it starts to falter. So in many real life scenarios, you're not gonna have to worry about these thermal issues because, well, let me back that up. I think that in some in some for some people, you will have to worry about thermal issues. If you're a video editor in particular, either the test that you're you're seeing are valid because they push the CPU to its limits, and they hold it there to see what it will do. And that is what happens when you are in coding something and your CPU has to sit there and turn and turn insurance for long periods of time. Now, if you're trying to play at the same time, I think that's, that's asinine. There's no reason why you do that because no one is ever realistically, realistically going to encode and play. For night at the same time. You're total idiot. Sure. People try it for sure. They might try it, but no-one no-one has as part of their workflow. I mean, again, as a video person, when your computer is rendering, leave it there, you don't go do something else because you know it affects it pulls cycles away from the right. So anyway, point taking Louis, don't try to render and play for night at the same time. Whereas you call the quick. Reminding me. Don't try to play quake nights and render a video on your Cinna bench FX XP pro cut us her at the same time. So hard to remember. That's. Easy target list on this home pods story just really fast, and then we'll move onto listener questions. This story. Where is it? There we go home pied OS twelve beta software said to support multiple timers. Oh my goodness. Can you imagine a life or you could have multiple times than your own pot coupons? I can sit four timers, total one, and you also have new call features anymore. I don't know how accurate this is. I'm just putting this out there in case you have a home pod. You might find this interesting as the owner of a home pot. I await apple adding new features because as you know, the home pipes don't do much right now French tech blog. I generate Sean reports that a beta version of the software currently in internal testing enables users to make Kohl's an answer them from the home pod and ask Siri to find your iphone and set multiple timers on the home pot.

"Say i'm i'm somebody who's working with the development team and maybe we brought on somebody who's maybe struggling a bit and you know sometimes i've seen where developers can really spin wheels and maybe not raise their hand and say hey i'm stuck i need help to your point about saying i don't know right because maybe it just feels like the solution is just around the corner if one more does compile it again and just see this time and and whatever but how do you coach people out of that spinning wheels mentality first off you have to create a culture around you where it's it's okay to not know and that it is really team based someone should as soon as they feel like they're stuck feel like they can ask for help to have that open relationship to say i've never done this before have you do you have any suggestions for for how i could do it and as someone who is who is mentoring and managing those kinds of people you have to keep your eyes open for for the signs that they're struggling or where can you interject yourself in in a way that your helpful not in a not in a derogatory or negative way but did you build them up and you let them know that it's okay to make mistakes and you've made you've made very similar ones i've i've made more mistakes than than than i could possibly count and you just have to emphasize that you know you can make mistakes that's fine just learned from them and we'll be we'll be better next time as we work on it i've found that when you've got an maybe somebody new somebody maybe fresh or than three months their focuses a lot on like i got hired here i supposed to know everything and you know he can be stressful because you don't want to get fired because you don't know the answer this thing but you don't know for sure you don't know exactly what the culture is like you had a couple of hours of interviews but you're also maybe bringing some baggage from another place and so you're sitting there and you're like oh man i gotta get to take this home over the weekend or something because i can't not know what this is and what i've found being a leader within those developers as being the first person to say i don't know and saying it a lot in order to help create that culture do you find that that'd be helpful for you yeah i i definitely find it to be helpful you you describe me as a full stack developer but i do have a tendency to prefer and know more about the front end so frankly when i when i work with the guys that i work with now i'll be there and i will oftentimes jump into a back end problem and i will ask them for help you know be hey guys how would you do this you know look how i did this what would you do better and one thing that we do is we sit down as a group pretty much every week and we have a group code review or we come in and we say okay what what did what did people work on in the last week they wanna show off to other people are asking other people had ideas to share about how to do it better and like i said just building that culture where the whole team is able to communicate and talk about better ways to do things because if you're not having those kind of discussions i guarantee there is someone on your team that is spinning their wheels and feeling like their stock and they they just need your support and and they will do they will agree part of the interview processes that code review or co challenge right right what some advice that you'd give somebody that's maybe creating co challenge for the first time or maybe they're getting some i don't know hit and miss on their current co challenge what are some of the things that they should be really focused on for that.

"To talk about how to build grow and manage development team and just a heads up this schmidt list is going to take a break for the next two weeks while i prepare for some upcoming talks you can see me at the founder sale at we work on may seventh or at the twin cities product conference on may seven and that's all the news so here's my talk with anthony all right well welcome tony to the show thanks for coming by thanks for having me so tell me how did you get into development how did you did you always want to grow up to be a programmer yeah i i don't know that that was ever a vision i had i think it goes back to sometime in the mid eighties my my father was a was a developer when i was a kid growing up and he had a computer and we added in the mid eighties and i fell in love with what it could do you know i remember i remember you know getting a mouse and thinking how absolutely stupid it was thing who's gonna use this how do i get back into the terminal and as grew up i had that love of computers and started to discover the world wide web was able to you know at that time right click view source and it was everything you needed to know to learn and as i was growing up also had another passion and that was music and i had an opportunity to pair those two things and i started making websites for free and all the bands i was playing in and then ended up making websites for bands that i was playing with and the knowledge just kept growing from there and eventually somebody said hey you seem to know what you're doing would you like to do this professionally and then i did i find it interesting because i mean i know there's lots of like apps out there that teach kids how to program and this and that but i don't think you know as much as in the late eighties early nineties people had to deconstruct a lot of things in order to learn as much as they do these days yeah i think there's there's a lot more fundamentals and programs out there that that kids are anyone can learn from to learn how to do this i believe very strongly the programming is is a trade can be taught to anyone someone can sit down with the right materials can learn how to do this just like you can learn how to be a plumber electrician i joke sometimes with folks just like plumbers and electricians maybe someday in the future developers will have to be licensed as well because of how important the internet is going to become or has become to everybody's lives yeah absolutely i've thought about that i've talked with many people before and i think it makes some people uncomfortable since the practice right and doesn't seem that ridiculous to me frankly if it's certain type of properties i mean maybe it does make sense i mean healthcare dot gov or some important portals out there maybe you need to have a certain level of provable in order to work on those things and some of those things exist today if you look at you know the world of healthcare with something like hip or high trust you're starting to see these standards that organizations are held to not necessarily individuals but organizations and i i could definitely see that sort of transferring down to individuals at some point yeah because there's i associate and'red and some other things already right but of course but you know in terms of the individual person versus the organization i wonder if maybe in the future that that makes more sense but there's still plenty of unlicensed plumbers electric out there i myself am one of those same here i've installed a water heater before oh man that's advance yeah it took only ten hours in four trips to home depot so that that is actually pretty good yeah i felt actually pretty good about that yeah i'd never sweated pipes before but that that's an interesting process talk about a trade to learn that was interesting you can learn anything on youtube yeah exactly let's talk about what you're doing these days so you've been a programmer and designer for quite a while very full stack and but nowadays you're the.

"What are you doing getting stuff done if we started looking at more than information we might find that what we thought we were going to get done doesn't matter but weirdly there's this strange signal that's popping up over here on the side and that kind of leads me to this thing that a friend of mine turned me onto a few years ago called design of experiment so it's an industrial engineering concept okay where if you're trying to say i want these results if you don't control the whole ecosystem like if you have a digital population of three million you can't just sample six people you can sample small subset of people figure out whether the u i is right but you're not going to be able to sample six people and figure out is that the right result you want right so if you start getting more visualizations out there more analytics than you might find that what you thought was interesting not but there's this weird signal over here now that's really going to ask some of those leaders to take a leap of faith because they're going to be like the ones that don't get the data we're going to have to do some educa i think this is going to be significantly more difficult than the agile stuff was share because it's more and big you ass there's more mythical certainty like we gotta just get it done much that drives our whole ecosystem in the back of everyone's mind there's this weird pressure of like low people are building right i don't that's not gonna go away overnight now that's going to take a long time to change because again back to how people are incentivized is a big part of it i find that if you're if the development team is incentivize on turning through points then that's what you're going to get if they know that they get a good if they get good marks for because they were churning through they had this much velocity then that's the type of development team you're gonna you're gonna get i invested a million dollars in this erp system to track story points and things so what do i what do i do now confirmation by she'll be more story points that must be good i must be good points like inherently didn't start out wrong idea of customer value was baked into the points the whole.
