Gov. Greg Abbott Should Go Forward With Building Wall Along U.S.-Mexico Border
"So a state has the power. Has the power To use private property. To pay for it. The market rate Under the fifth moment. I want you to look around. Look in your own community. You have schools. You're fired the department buildings you have police department buildings. You have libraries and so forth. This is an all land that was owned by communities. At times they've had to. Use private property. Called the takings clause of the Constitution. They take it. They're supposed to give fair market value for it, And it's supposed to have a real public purpose. The controversy in the Kayla decision was there wasn't a real public purpose. They were doing it for private. Developers.

Fresh update on "developer" discussed on With Friends Like These
"To victims of the massacre and then secondly to their descendants So that absolutely needs to Continue to be a part of the conversation We sort of really wrestle with that here in tulsa I'm hoping that Now that this is a national conversation that that becomes That that we really start talking about that again that we that we don't dismiss that Forbes just released a new article about the continual Holding back of the greenwood community the continued attacks on the greenwood community. Everything that we've mentioned from the massacre to urban renewal gentrification the total that they came up with For reparations amounted to forty five billion dollars Which i think is quite appropriate. If they were somehow to do reparations as equal payment out of what all was lost absolutely. I but what i was thinking is that direct payment doesn't even really start to if that's a start right to start. There could be more. There could be a lot more. I think that Again this land. That was recently Pledged to be given back to. The city needs to belong to the greenwood community. We cannot allow just anyone and everyone to come in and develop greenwood. It can't be this sort of lousy affair. The richest developer who gets to come in and develop this land. It needs to be owned by greenwood. there's a growing movement and This again is part of a national conversation to remove the highway That that runs through. greenwood And that's highway to forty four. So i think there's a lot of local conversation around that And now that the biden administration has a sort of Plan idea to use federal dollars to remove highway that historically have been built through blackened immigrant communities That if any other that any city needs this it's.
Using Cognitive Dissonance as a Tool
"Cognitive dissonance creates a stressful environment but stress is not always bad in fact we stress as humans all the time we learn how to grow from stress. We use stress in order to create incentives. You can think about stress as a detractor something that make something a little bit more difficult. One example of stress might be putting the candy at the top of your pantry. This is something that we practice in my house by putting the candy at the top of the pantry. You have to undergo a little bit of extra physical work which is a type of stress to get a piece out that added stress. Might mean that. I'm going to get less candy as it turns out. This is absolutely true. If something is more convenient than you're more likely to access it so this very basic concept of creating an economic dis incentive. This is a strong concept for behavior. Change for yourself and for others and so if you want to create behavior change creating this idea of cognitive dissonance in order to avoid certain behaviors and encourage. Different behaviors is a good idea. There's been some interesting related research in what causes people to adhere to their commitments and adhere to particular habits that they care about one of the most important findings. Is that when we describe ourselves as let's say they physically active person. I am physically active.
Roger Kibbe Imagines a World With Reusable Open Source Components for Voice
"It strikes me when i've seen the different voice platforms and this isn't surprising. But they were kind built with a little bit of a web mentality in mind like this is a defined. ui flow the kind of defines. How i do things. And so i built this kind of framework with that kind of thinking in line. I don't blame. The people did it because everyone would do the same thing. Voices new but really voices so dot defined so open. People say things out of order. They can go back they. Can you know we do it. All the time in our conversations and i it feels to me like the existing frameworks sometimes get awfully rigid. Is how they want you to to things that that that then you end up writing an awful lot of code and i to. I hate writing plumbing coat yet. I want something that takes away a bunch of that plumbing for me and then right right interesting stuff we're still with any of the platforms writing a bunch of plumbing code because they haven't been optimized but we're still in early days. I mean look at all. Just go back to your example of the early web alan. It was pretty bad. It was pretty hard in the nineties to write web applications. And it's yeah people people who weren't there at the time don't don't remember what it was like. Yeah they don't and so you've got to give it time to mature and and understand and it's a completely different medium to and so there's different needs there And i was. I was thinking when you're talking about a set of reasonable components. I had a dream reusable source components. Yes very big fan of open source. I think that would be a great Great contribution to the voice community such as snl markup. But you know it's interesting like i wonder if we'll get to a point if you look on the web world and that i mean you can actually go out and buy components that do things and i haven't seen that so much invoice. I know there's like some believe there's a website that launch fairly recently that has a bunch of ap l. examples and actually selling some. I thought that was really interesting. I thought that was encouraging to the industry. If someone could find a way to monetize and create something where there's these reusable components that can be used and they don't have to come from the platform providers me as an independent third party. Developer can create them. Obviously yes beautiful to be open source but also okay. If they're a little closed they're being sold. I mean not just that will open it up a lot and if you look at the web and mobile. There's just so many frameworks it's almost. What framework do i start with.
What Tools Could Platforms Provide to Help Developers? Mark Tucker Has Some Ideas
"Looked at this tools question a little bit differently. I i looked at it more. Like what tools could the platforms. The major platforms provide to us to to help us. And so i thought if things like i love the fact that i can plug poly voices into alexa and i do have some voice options when i'm doing google actions but i would really like to be able to plug in any voice any voice into the system and not have it be so close so i plug ability allowing anything that A first party Voice experience can. Do you know that the providers can do i want to be able to do in the third party and skills and you know absent. I create so if there's any disparity and what i can do is a developer versus what the platforms currently deliver. I want i want those tools like one of those things you know. Voices is used in a huge way with audio and on alexa. The audio player has been not really changed it a long time. And there's this awkwardness of when you go from a skill into a voice you know audio player experience and then getting out of audio player experience and picking about back where you left off and then there needs to be some smoothness out there so those are some of the things that i've been thinking about.
Allen Firstenberg Describes the Tooling Improvements Needed to Move Voice Forward
"What kind of improvements are needed to move voice forward. I know what i think about tooling. I think a lot about you know i. I do a lot of comparison. So i tend to think what were what were things like in the early days the web or in the early days of mobile development and realize that we're still in the early days of voice development and start making analogies like that. So you know in the early days of web. Go and we were. We were editing. Html text editors and it wasn't until we started to get tools like dreamweaver get systems like content management systems that tied into bigger platforms that we were able to begin to say you know to to really start to get some of the web. The nice stuff out of the web before then it was you know was there and we could see the potential. There was a lot of potential. We kept talking about the potential but it wasn't until we had those tools that we could really start to unleash unleash it so i think that's what we're going to start seeing what we really need when it comes to voice development are tools like voice specific content management systems or the real ways that we can edit. Not just you know the the broad text to speech systems but really be able to edit the audio nuances of what we want to reply with how we want it to sound shape the entire soundscape about our replies and once we start getting those tools and putting them in the hands of people who are not developers and yet still tied in with with the developer systems. Then i think we're going to. We're to start getting to where audio and voice become really really powerful.
How the Philadelphia Eagles Create Engaging Fan Content With Voice
"Are sports. Bran were sports organizations. Sports club anybody's ever worked in. The sports industry. Knows that you know. We operate as a small business. Our resources review we are strapped. A little bit in terms of how many people are actually in our organization. Even though i think we re tend to lean the little heavier on our side rightfully so. I think we're doing a lot everywhere but we also want to be mindful. We can't hire alexa amazon alexa developers. We can't google news feed developers and You know i would love to hire them to be honest with you but at the end of the day you know we try to partner with vendors. Who help us be as nimble as possible so that we can bring that vendor versatility and at which allows us to play freely an truly focused on our content strategy versus thinking about. How do we program this. How do we not program. Business overall Thinking about strategy. The one thing that we realized is We didn't want to just do something as As as this kind of luted to is we have podcasts distribution channels every weekend absolutely just put all of our podcasts right on our voice channels and be done with it and we would kind of check off that box i think for us what was important is how do we program nuances voice interactions and so have you where we can ultimately start having conversational content without their so if a fan is asking for x. y. they're able to not only get xyz but also taken down a path of potentially learning more about additional content and things of that sort You know my kids play with the disney app. All the time. And mickey comes on and he'll he'll kind of go and ask some trivia questions that my kids are so engaged. Because they're talking with mickey and they like mickey and i'm every week the contents fresh different right so We wanted the ability to program such content without having the you know having a higher additional engineers to help us have program. Weakened weak out. We'll to the philadelphia eagles voice assistance. Here's some things you can say. Good storm you've been saying play. The latest eagles insider podcast flexibility to program really quickly is really what we're looking for and and and our voice is really what costs you know. We'll talk more about the product. I'm sure but you know. We love that flexibility. Beloved nimble nests for rebel. To do what we wanna do week over week. We changed certain. Uh strategic points depending on men's losses in our team is performing what they're doing and what they're not doing all the different nuances the program very easily and really best the solution.

Bret Kinsella on BOT Coin, a New Tool for the Voice and Chatbot Communities
"You share with us. A little bit about you know your your impetus for creating coining the idea and And then let's chat a little bit about it and got some announcements to make around. It is okay all right great so the first thing i would just like to say about bitcoin is. I don't think it is like me. Creating more of a we created it because there are a lot of people that were behind this and i wouldn't have done it if it was just voiced bought alone. That was working on this. So that was that was one thing. But if i step back really the whole idea started with this this this other trend. We've seen among people in the industry. The ones that you and i interact with most frequently. And that's the community voice Developers owners the preneurs the business Business folks that the big companies even and what i notice happening starting about two years ago as the startup fragmentation and that accelerated last year. And so you know. I think about like three years ago we all got together in newark right and so we will together and last year. We weren't able to do that so that wasn't able to bind us together. And there were some other types of activities that we're all binding us together whether it's all building skills or doing something else and that just that just evaporated over the last. I would say two years but it was really cute last year. And so i was thinking that. That's one of the things that we do and that's really the core of your business is community but we are sort of a central gathering place at voice spot for lots of things. So i think i think we do something around community known sort of a side project that i'll do just to provide value. Everybody and that. It looked actually for a fleeting moment like clubhouse was helping with that. 'cause everyone was getting together not everybody. But at least ios people and then later the android people We're we're getting talking but that's not really a community platform so that wasn't going to quite do it And so basically. I settled on two things after talking to people about coin and the voice about discord
Driving A Successful Launch for Conversational Actions with Google's Mike Bifulco
"Imagine this you're working on a team. That's building a game for actions on google. You're getting to the point in the development process where you can see the light at the end of the tunnel that first releases coming well with any luck. You're a member of a savvy team that has done the work ahead of time to think about marketing plan. You know it's critical to understand your audience and have a plan to reach them long before your app hits the virtual shelves in addition to that. You've worked with your team to define some metrics for success so that you know whether or not you're marketing campaigns are doing a good job of reaching the audience. You're looking for when it comes to putting together a marketing plan. I'm pretty fond of this quote. A design isn't finished until using it. When you're wearing marketers hat your goal is to bring a compelling message to that somebody and to get them to tryout. You're cool new game. We'll break our marketing. Plan down into a few steps first off. Let's talk about the building blocks of strategic marketing. If you're watching is because you're a developer remember. This stuff is good to know no matter what having broad understanding of your team's goals for launch can only help you point towards success when thinking about how to market your game you want to assemble a coalition of team members with a broad range of skills. Generally this cross functional team may include participation from the following groups public relations creative leads copywriting engineering and social media management. There's a few key activities you'll want to think about when developing your strategy you want to get to a shared understanding of your target audience evaluate your marketing channels and to think about measures of success. So that you can track how well your marketing activities are working defining. Your target audience should be based on the objective of your action specifically determine if you're trying to reach existing users or new users often building an action is a way to attract new customers thanks to the buzzer. This generates npr however given the nascent stage voici. In the average consumer's life. It's best to start with actions that target existing users and then tackle use cases that drive new user growth. Once you've learned more about how your existing users prefer to engage with your brand via voice for example. A game designed around managing a fictional sports team might initially target. Gamers are sports fans later. They can expand their audience to encourage new players outside of that core audience to try the game as you create your channel plan. Think about how your promotion pits in with your brands. Ecosystem and customer touch points. Remember that it's important to have a consistent and cross channel strategy look to wherever user traffic is greatest to highlight your actions availability
Apple Plans Faster Watch, Future Temperature and Glucose Sensors
"A mark gurman and debbie. Woo apple scoop monday. Their sources say apple is planning to launch a faster. Watch with improve connectivity and screen later this year which okay. That's probably to be expected. There always improving things like connectivity and screens but also what if we got new model types say an entry level and extreme sports model beginning next year quoting bloomberg the cupertino california-based tech giant is planning to refresh the line this year with a model likely dubbed the apple. Watch series seven. By adding a faster processor improved wireless connectivity an updated screen. According to people with knowledge of the plans next year the company plans to update the main apple watch alongside a successor for the lower end apple watch s e and a new version targeting extreme sports athletes apple had previously aim to put a body temperature sensor in this year's model. But that is now more likely to be included in the update. The blood sugar sensor which would help diabetics monitor their glucose levels is unlikely to be ready for commercial launch for several more years for this year's model apple has tested thinner display borders and a new lamb technique that brings the display closer to the front cover. The new watch is likely to be slightly thicker overall but not in a way. That's noticeable to the user. The model will include updated ultra wideband functionality. The same underlying technology in the apple airtags item finder at its developer conference in early. June apple previewed the upcoming watch. Os eight software update. That will the device unlock door and hotel rooms. The extreme sports model described by some inside apple as either explorer or adventure addition was in development for release as early as this year but is now more likely to launch in two thousand twenty two that new model would help apple compete with rugged offerings from players like garmin and casio computer and quote.
Non-Linear Learning and Progress
"Progress most often when uninterrupted is cyclical thing about this for a second progress and we can sub in the word learning because learning and progress are in many ways in most ways. Interchangeable learning and progress are rarely lanier and are more often cyclical as not always cyclical either but I want to focus on those two different options. I guess three different options for progress for learning. When i is what. We kind of intuitively intuitively believe which is the linear model right. The linear model of progress. The second is cyclical they cyclical model of progress which is most common and then the third is anything else anything else that is not doesn't fit those tumult so first let's talk about the idea of linear progress and i wanna talk about are kind of intuitive assumption. That most things are linear. You've heard this on the show before the linear model makes the most sense to our brains probably because most of the things that we interact with we interact with in some close to linear way. Now if you think about physics this is generally not actually true. Nothing goes from You know sitting at rest to going particular velocity. Nothing starts moving at a particular velocity instantaneously. That doesn't happen. Everything has a non linear acceleration curve or deceleration curve. There's no way to You know in average kind of physics setups. At least the ones i'm familiar with. There's no way to go instantaneously to a particular
Widgets and Shortcuts: Maximizing Efficiency of Android Devices with Rebecca Nathenson
"Android shortcuts are already used by app developers to provide a quick entry point to users via the android launcher last year. We introduced the ability for users to create personal voice shortcuts into apps with google assistant. Now you can join in the voice shortcuts party if you build android shortcuts. They'll automatically be suggested to users in our voice shortcuts gallery so users can set up a personal voice command. The takes advantage of the android shortcut in your app to make this possible. You can use our new shortcuts jetpack macho to push shortcuts whenever users take the corresponding action in your app. Make sure also connect your shortcuts to the right app capabilities in shortcuts dot. Xml when you follow these best practices. Google assistant can suggest relevant shortcuts to users in all sorts of ways and helped drive traffic to your app so just to recap. You can describe the set of deeply supported by your app directly in the short cossacks. A mel via the new capabilities.

Google Assistant's Rebecca Nathenson: Come Join the Voice Shortcuts Party
"Back in twenty sixteen. We first introduced google assistant because we wanted to help people get things done and we knew that letting them just ask for what they wanted in plain language was the best way to do that since then google assistant has grown to be available in over thirty languages ninety countries and on more than one billion devices hundreds of millions of people every month. Use the assistant to get things done on all kinds of surfaces from mobile phones and smart displays. Tv's cars and more my four year old talks to pretty much everything with a screen expecting to answer and our developers are crucial. Part of this growth. The google assistant team can't build every imaginable capability that our users need those hundreds of millions of users have millions of interests the developers just like you can deliver on for my son's favourite games to our families video chats to that perennial favourite in our household. He google tell me you monster trucks story. in fact queries fulfilled by developers. Apps have more than doubled in the past year and we know that this is the wave of the future as the platform grows the variety of queries will grow to and that's where our ecosystem truly shines. Just want a more natural way to get what they need. They want to get more of what they need. In that natural way it's natural in that users can just say what they want natural because it's not tied to a single device or service natural because with the understanding of context. We and you can be smart about how we step in and help users before the even ask for the help today i wanna share the changes and enhancements. We have coming for every place that google assistant pierce from app actions for android developers to conversational action
Pete Erickson: Analyzing the Room for Conversational Assistants in Daily Life
"Certainly see a day when you will invite a conversational assistant as a third party to the conversation and allow them to Capture data capture biometric data capture information. That is sensitive and also highly relevant to doing verification so the conversation can flow freely between the two humans without putting the cognitive load on the customer service agent who's attempting to maintain a relationship and a positive call experience as opposed to like collecting the nuts and bolts You know there's still a large number of consumers that prefer to do banking in person or on the phone Very large. I think larger than most anticipate expect. And so you know. There's still a lot of opportunity to add intelligence into that conversation and leverage the technology a voice to bring it full circle and And so. I think that there's certainly some some benefits there. What erica is to. Bank of america is huge. It's certainly the trend. That banks are if not applying practically implementing like thinking about spending a lot of time thinking there. 'cause there's a lot of opportunity to improve mobile experience especially when you think about adaptability. There's there's a lot of value there but But yeah we'll see we'll see we'll see how much investments going to pour into the space Over the next few years i think the customer servicing and those types of use cases probably be the majority of the investment over the next two to three years. And then we'll see certainly agree with you there. I think. I think i think the customer service the whole that whole industry is is teeming with teaming with opportunity in the in the boys tech industry and there is a lot of focus in that market both from the major players but then also allow third party platforms and developers and folks as service the call centers bases you know stay tuned for a lot of innovation in those areas.
Understanding Conversational Design to Solve Complex Issues
"Think about voice as these customer conversations and i think in fact that there's a whole discipline around conversational design. How do we speak as humans. And then how do we replicate that so that we can really get to solve some of the examples that you just said in my work for example. I seem more of the complex issues. So that's why. I'm using for example artificial intelligence to drive and extract kind of the meaning behind the conversations while the technology can take care of at least at the first cut the more simple transactions. Let me give you example. I was just thinking about this the other day you know. I had come across a a consumer frustration. I consumer complaint and it was rooted in Points of discrimination and When you listened to what the customer was saying in this particular case the customer was deaf and they had called in to speak with an agent and the agent didn't realize that the customer was deaf and they were using a release service. And i think that they thought that this was a fraud and so i thought to myself if a person is having this difficulty discerning for example kind of what's happening with this person and they are they are disability. At this point. How is a machine going to do that. That's kind of a much higher order that we're going to have to get to as we learn through all of the science behind conversations and conversational design and so i still right now with all the advancement that's going on with voice technology with all of the thousands of developers that are working on all of these solutions. It's still nascent when we want to bring it into these types of complex issues that institutions have to deal with on a daily basis.
Apple Still Has a Lot of New Stuff Coming
"Apple had their keynote. I believe that was yesterday. And it's been a pretty chill dc. At least from i out side observation of like from the smattering of conversation. I've seen on twitter And like in work chats and steph. It feels like this one. It's it's not the not the fireworks show as it were right. Yeah i would agree with that. I feel like and this is true. I think for microsoft is true for google ceo lake. Not there weren't great announcements and there weren't things that people are excited about but this it's almost like we've had like last year there was a lot of maybe part of it was allowances because we've been in the pandemic that point for just a couple of months and things have been built up and and this year it just feels like know. It's fine but there hasn't been anything that's being like. Oh my god like it's like last year you know the in one mack was obviously going to be massive regardless right it took on an even bigger kind of prescience with everything that was happening in the world. Now is just kind of like okay. There's some cool stuff coming but nothing. That's going to you know like revolutionize everything no i really agree with that christina last year with the move to 'em one i mean this was that was like the the nuclear weapon of w. d. c. keynotes 'cause every apple developers. How is this going to work. Where am i going to be able to get hardware. What's going to be compatible. How oh my god am. I am i. I mean that was last year's keynote. So anything into that is is going to be low key and i also. I think it's worth saying that like a lot of my fears. From last year's keynote largely did not come to fruition. It's been very smooth transition
Implementing Voice Technologies: The Relationship Between Design and Development
"In conversation designed specifically Design and development have to work really closely together. So what data a system stores and in what form it is stored is usually not considered something a conversation designer would have to quote unquote worry about but that is how that all of that stuff impacts how we would write a prompt. Tally would plan certain behaviors. Intents we're going to support all of that feeds into what data we can and can't get and so it's such a good example of like design and development have to sit down and talk about this So that design can be implementable. Limitation matches the design and Certainly like knowing technical constraints is a huge part of how we make our plans. So i'm throughout. The book tried to include conversation starters for designers and developers designers and stakeholders to kind of dig into stuff. Together right. yeah. So it's it's really it's really gonna start impacting software architecture. And how do we architect solutions. So that All the services that are up there whether their voice or mobile or other some kind of application can access things. It's it's it's exciting. Because i think we're entering into that next phase of the of the industry and you know in in the world
What Are the Quirks That Come With Being a Developer
"Let's start with you telling us about your coding journey. Where they're all begin for you. I i started getting into coating during college. I started out as a psychology major and was pretty intent on finishing up. Undergrad getting a master's degree and being a counselor About couple years into it. I realized i liked the more hard science a lot. Better than sort of the sop science and social science part of it. And i had taken a statistics class. Like just a psychology stats. Class really looked to that. So i got into statistics and changed my major to that and at that point i had to take a bunch of like stats computing type glasses. So for instance statisticians tend to use programming languages like our or sass or even just like sql database management. And so that was really my first introduction to programming at that point. Like i realized if i to look at the t. between statistics and computer science actually like program a lot more than i liked the stats part of it. Nah i landed up graduating with degrees statistics. During that time. I just did a ton of learning on my own. Did a lot of like could academy courses recode cam fluoro- site videos whole time. Packer rank exercises. I even read through twenty programming textbooks now on just java script html and just building stuff just trying to make little side project snack things together. And after i graduated from college. I landed my first programming job. So what was it about that stats class. And then getting into programming. That resonated with you so is taking ard says stats programming. Which are and it was really amazing. Nina we could like run simulations and experiments just for typing a few lines of co dried. We could run simulations of very simple things like let's flip the coin hundred times and see how many times it lands heads or tails or even just like data visualization like we have data set and using just a few lines of code. You could use like a stats package like something like g plot to create this beautiful chart. That was really cool that you could like essentially build something out of basically nothing

"For sponsoring today's episode of developer t. So you're setting your goals, you're going through your resolutions. Whatever your particular way of you know, kind of doing a reboot for the new year. Most people have some kind of process that they follow. And by the way, if you are if you're listening to this, and you kind of don't believe that, you know, the new year should be such a big deal. There is some support that our brains. Do see the beginning of something as a good time to do this kind of thing. It's not just a, you know a way to sell gym memberships, this is actually there's there's some good evidence to show that we have we really do benefit from this kind of clean slate. Clean slate kind of thinking so encourage you to take advantage of this stuff and don't just, you know, push against it because it's the popular thing to do. But instead to find. Some value in it. Okay. So if you're doing whatever ritual it is that you perform to try to figure out what is it that I want out of this year? What is it that I want out of my life? These there's plenty of topics undeveloped not in the past where we talked about finding those things. But in today's episode of specifically wanna focus on how setting those those goals and figuring out how you measure them can be absolutely critical to your success. Here's the reality. If you measure the wrong thing if you choose the wrong metric. If you are for example, let's say that you decide that your health. Is going to be measured by strictly your weight your body weight? You're going to measure your health strictly by your body weight. And perhaps you're going to measure your physical.

"The. What are you doing today to improve? The easing answer for developers often something along the lines of learning language or reading a book about programming or maybe building something. These are all very good. In fact, there essential parts of the learning process as developer. You might even include listening to this podcast in your list of things that you do to improve your career, and I would be honoured if this pike cast made that list, but if we only focus on our practical skills, if all we do is learn a new technique for building software. If all we're doing is adding to our toolbox, and we don't think about the wide range of tools that we may actually need and instead of adding to our. Toolbox for actually just adding a bunch of the same type of tool we may end up in a scenario where career seems to be somewhat limited. Our ability to move laterally in our career from one company to another or her ability to connect with the people that we work with connect to as the show is so often reminding you are career purpose. The truth is the work that we need to be doing is not just about our practical skills. It's also not just about our relationships are networking these things once again are very important. But there's another piece to this puzzle. Then perhaps it's the primary piece at least it's the kind of the foundational piece, and that is our working on ourselves are working on the. The way that we see the world the way that we perceive our jobs. You're listening to develop a t my name is Jonathan Cottrell. And in today's episode. I'm announcing something we've already kind of soft announced before the new year began. But today, we're officially announcing that the tea break challenge is live. It's.

"That's developer t two zero one eight that will give you that twenty dollars worth of credit. There's so many other things that linen provides as part of their service. We're not going to get through them all in today's episode, but owed is a continued sponsor of. Developer t thank you again to Leonard for sponsoring today's episode. So we're talking about kind of the etymology of a software project. All of these things. We probably have some bad and some very good memories that are being vote by talking about his various types of problems that we face in software. Some of these things can make us feel proud. Some of them can make us feel a sense of shame and perhaps the most important feeling for us to pay attention to his fear. Fear is important because fear is often an indicator. The feeling of fear is an indicator of some level of uncertainty. The unknown. This is often causes fear as software developers begin to work on a new project, the fear of the unknown. Specifically the fear of the unknown as it relates to changes things that I might interact with things that I might do. If you give me a task, however you are managing those tasks doesn't really matter. But if you have a task and I take this, this on as a software developer go into this project that has all of these eighty sink receives that we've already discussed in the earlier part of this episode. Then it's very possible if not likely that I'm going to have some level of intrepid nation. I'm going to be uncertain about the changes that I'm getting ready to make. And so understanding that software comes about as the result of human processes that should prompt us to create systems that support that human side of sulphur development. So what is what was it mean to support this? Well, first of all, we have to recognize what of those human traits can cause software to be dangerous. Right? And again, we said on previous episodes of the show, I'm gonna say it again on this episode if you follow the fear. In other words, if you pay attention to what developers are afraid of, you'll often uncover places where your software needs to be refracted needs to be changed or rethought in some way that software is causing a level of uncertainty as some uncertainty is is absolutely attributable to a lack of experience for a given developer in this needs to be kind of brought out as well, but very often, uncertainty and fear come as a result of a developer feeling like. There's something that they should know, but they don't. And perhaps that thing that they should know is not necessarily rudimentary programming knowledge, but instead it some kind of knowledge that's embedded in this project, something in that life cycle that atom apology, something human, some decision that was made along the way or some colloquial language that was adopted along the way. Some vocabulary that is not obvious. Maybe some level of indirection is confusing or maybe even unnecessary. And so as new developers come onto projects, this is a critical point to understand the fear, the uncertainty that those developers have because this is going to point you in the direction of places where your code has the artifacts and perhaps even an damaging way the artifacts..

"But as a beginner starts on this path, they don't have the scheme. A Bill tough. So younger developers, you're listening to the show. I encourage you to not be afraid of choosing different solutions. Of course, it's important to recognize that there is a lot of value to be learned from people who have experience, but remember that your benefit as young developer is that you are more apt to question. Why? Why are we choosing solution x over solution? Be. And when you ask these questions, you're slowing down your thought process in your creating your schema more intentionally rather than relying on your existing schema, your forging new schema. So if you are an experienced developer in order to kind of combat this issue where you may have blind spots, it's important that you do two things. One, listen to the questions and the concerns of learning developers. If you're an expert, then having the questions reposed to you that you haven't asked maybe in evening years, these these same questions allowing those questions to ask and considering the answer slowly intentionally slowing down and I would even recommend doing something like telling yourself out loud that I'm going to think about this thoroughly. I'm going to think slowly about this idea. This will allow you to challenge. Your schema and it's important that you keep this learning mindset not just because you know, maybe you're scheme is wrong. That's not really the point. The point is that blind spots can cause problems as you collaborate with other developers, especially if you're in a company where you have new people on boarding all the time. One of the reasons that new people often feel imposter syndrome as they come into a company regardless of their experience level is because other people in the company are fairly experienced with their way of doing things. And in fact, usually companies have a kind of way that the company does things. And so as you come in as a new developer for that company, it's easy to feel like an impostor. If you don't know why things are done the way that they are so experienced developers, if you are mentoring young developers, especially if those developers are working in a collaborative role with you and courage you to slow down. And allow those those developers ask why things are the way that they are and young developers to take advantage of this of this brand new field of new scheme that you're creating in.

"Again, it is your lotion for sponsoring today's episode of developer t. So we're talking about beliefs today and I want to. To kind of explain why believes her some important when we have beliefs that kind of act as these immovable guardrails in our decision making process. And when we have beliefs that we're building our habits from those habits, kind of add, even more structure to those beliefs you can think of that as kind of like pouring cement over your guard rails on really creating this immovable object. That's very difficult to dig up very difficult to move to change in any particular way. And as we get older and as our brains continue experience more things and we continue to travel down those roads with those particular guardrails, they become even more ingrained in. There's a good reason for this to happen. Of course, over the years, we use confirmation bias to help us even further establish the sense of safety that we get from the. Guardrails, no one wants to feel unsafe. This is true, not only for kind of our pride or mental pride of doing something that isn't smart, but it's also true at a fundamental human instinct level. We don't wanna feel unsafe. And so we justify a lot of our believes with reasoning. The problem is sometimes that reasoning is broken. Sometimes it's flawed or sometimes it's really kind of copying pasted from someone else's reasoning. We heard a story we saw we had a particular experience maybe and we base a given belief off of those experiences or from those stories. This is the idea of anecdotal evidence and very few times do we look at, for example, the frameworks that we choose to use or the languages that we choose to use or the particular way of running an organization very. Few times if we're the ones that are making the decision, it's very difficult to look at those what they true critical eye with the intent of checking those beliefs. Did I choose the right language instead we try to answer a different question internally. We try to answer the question. What are the good things about my choice? And even further, how can I make myself feel good about my choice? How can I feel safe? What are the reasons that I can feel safe about my choice? And as we said before, at the beginning of the episode, what we really need to be doing with our beliefs is giving ourselves of rain and understanding of how much we actually believe whatever that belief is. So I have a very simple exercise for you..

"The. As a developer, you've probably encountered the discussion or the offer to pursue a remote engagement, some kind of work where you're not necessarily bound to a specific location. Most developers would otherwise be in an office, but then they choose to work remotely. And traditionally this is working from home, but more and more people are working in a nomadic state or working as they travel for example. And this isn't necessarily all that surprising. Most of the materials that we need to do our work, it's pretty much a laptop and a good internet connection. So it makes sense to do a little bit of studying about remote work, seeing as many of us in many of the people listening to the show, especially will end up with some kind of remote engagement as your primary means of income. My name's Jonathan Cottrell and you're listening to developer team. I go on the show as to help driven developers just like you connects to your career purpose and do better work. See you can have a positive influence on the people around you. The people who come in contact with you. It's not just the people who are using the stuff that. Make, it's the people that you surround yourself with. And one of the ways that you may have a positive impact is based on your location, the literal community that you are part of. So it's very possible that remote work is going to improve your community relationships, but that's not what we're focusing on today. Today's episode were focusing more on the problems or more specifically, the one major problem that many managers are concerned about, and that is, how do we communicate with remote workers? How can we -ffective -ly create the same type of productive environment when people are not around each other? When there's no water cooler for example, no, passing each other in the hall and sharing personal stories about what happened over the weekend. That doesn't really happen when you're. Workforce is remote. So we want to talk about some of this communication dynamics and maybe something a little bit more surprising about how to mirror a more natural communication pattern. We're gonna talk about that a little bit more and just a moment. I wanna share some news with you all. The first piece of news is that spec has just launched a jobs board for designers and developers. Go and check it out. It's at spec out of him slash jobs and quick shot up to Brian Levin for pulling that together. It's a super awesome job board. Of course. If you are winning to hire designers and developers, the spec community is full of talented into people go in post your job. You can post at the same place back him slash jobs of second piece of news is that developer t recently rolled over ten million listens. We have five hundred sixty six episodes. Now we're actually nearing Tim one million, but ten mil. Billion listens since we started this show and I can't tell you just how grateful I am for you all the listeners, the audience of the show I want to connect more and more with you and the future is exciting, very thankful that you have stuck around this along, especially for those of you who who have subscribed over the years and you've listened diligently. No, there's three episodes of week that's a ton of content. And of course, we've had people listening some people even since the very beginning, some very grateful for that amount. Just that sheer number of people who have participated in making developer t happen. Thank you so much last piece of news. I wanted to remind you all about breaker upstream. This is a brand new partnership that developer team and breaker the pike, cast listening app breaker. You can find it in the app store..

"The. For the first few minutes of today's episode, I want to talk about kind of where we been and layout a little bit of a vision for wherever headed the show isn't going to change very much, but I do want to identify the reality that developer t started as a developer focused pike cast. This is pike cast that we want to to give developers the most value. Now with that often looks like impact casting is really specific technical discussions in. We've had a few of those on this show, but more more I'm noticing that developers who listen to this show, they value the discussions that we have. There are a little bit more abstracted away from technology, taking those concepts and then turning around and applying them to your career as a developer, as well as your practice as developer, not. Only your coding practice, but also how you handle yourself in social interactions and professional interactions. So I wanna make sure that everybody understands as you're listening to the show developer TV is intentionally crafted for developers, but the topics that we talk about on the show in many of the principles that we uncover on the show, they extend well beyond the development practice. This show will continue to be focused on software developers into the future. We're going to continue talking about these abstract concepts. Sometimes we will have technical discussions from an abstract perspective, but you can consider this moment in developer tease history, kind of the open door moment. We're not restricting the people who listen to the show to only software developers because as turns out software development is becoming a more and more open field. The value of creating software is going far. Beyond, you know, web development or even application development and it's extending into every other sphere. So I want to make sure that the people who listen to the show that if you're not if your job title doesn't include software developer and even if you aren't necessarily targeting job where that is your title that you know that you're welcome here because the show is more about and principles than it is about any specific technology. And the truth is we've had all kinds of people listen to the show and reach out and say, thank you because the show has provided some kind of value well beyond the software development practice. So I appreciate you for listening to the show, but I also want to extend that welcome to anyone who's listening to this for the first time or maybe you're developer and you know somebody who can appreciate this show even though they aren't necessarily developer themselves, encourage you to share. To share, whatever you think is valuable with those people. Okay. Let's jump into the content for today's episode. If you haven't already guessed you are listening to developer, not my name's Jonathan Cottrell. And the goal of this show is to help driven developers connect to their career purpose and do better work so they can have a positive influence on the people around them. And you've already heard some of the ways that we do this. We talk about abstract ideas, talk about a lot about how the brain works about how we can work effectively as humans. So in today's episode, we're going to talk about a very important subject. Of course, it's to do with the way we think not just the way we think in general, not the way we process information, but the way we view ourselves and as a result, the way the issue others..

"The. Part of the point of developer t is to help you the driven developer connect to your career purpose in order to do that. Sometimes it takes a little bit of investigation on the show. We're going to talk a little bit more about purpose in this episode. Specifically, we're going to talk about how you can find purpose in a smaller way. My name is Jonathan Cottrell and you're listening to developer prety, and we've already talked about point of this show in the other point of the show is so you can do better work because it's very difficult to do truly good work. If you're not connected to why you're doing that good work, the most lasting motivation that you will find is caring about the work itself. Of course, there are other kinds of motivation, for example, a paycheck or working with people that you enjoy being around. But if you can't find motivation in the work that you do, then you'll probably find limit to those other motivating factors. But in today's episode, I wanna talk a little bit about the struggle of finding purpose in your work and maybe help you out a little bit at least four today. That really is what today's episode is about the work you're doing today. So it can be difficult to find purpose. There's a bunch of techniques exercises you can do to try to uncover your purpose, but people can go their entire lives and never really find it. It seems like an elusive treasure that you have to dig up or maybe something that doesn't exist at all. Maybe something that you're searching for that you'll never find because it's not there to find. I think the problem with all of these ways of describing purpose is the idea that somehow this purpose is a token something that you can seek, or you know something that you have to carve out of the matter that is your time. And unfortunately, this is very hard to do for most people finding that token, finding that buried treasure that hidden sudden epiphany. This is something that doesn't really happen to the degree. That they feel like it substantial there is not a kind of light shining through the clouds. It piffling moment for most people. Now that's not to say that you won't have moments where you have more clarity than others. For example, figuring out that you like working with interesting problems. The sounds very generic, but sometimes people don't care about how interesting problem as so even those kinds of insights to your own preferences. Your own desires can be helpful. Other fifties that you may have is the people that you want to work for. For example, the users, the clients, the kinds of people that you care about working for regardless of what you're doing for those people. All of these things can be composed into some semblance of a purpose, and it's easy to think that are the people have found there's in the same way that it's easy to think that other people find that one perfect path. In any other area of life that they choose the perfect school or the perfect significant other everything fell into place, just right. The reality is much more messy. So what can we do when we have to deal with this irreducible uncertainty, this kind of big block in the road that we can't walk through. And sometimes it seems like we can't raw walk around it. We might have to choose different road altogether..

"What differentiates you as a developer so many of the problems that we saw with code are not necessarily complicated and so much of what we do is an about managing the code itself but it's about managing ourselves it's about managing the creator of the code ends setting us up sending your own teams up setting up yourself your patterns for success setting you up to deal with people who need that code set you up to understand the people who need that code the users the clients the people you work with these are all so much more of what you will spend your energy on throughout your career as a developer this is not to downplay the importance of code this is not to downplay the importance of technical understanding because truly to be a great developer you must not forget those pieces but for the majority of developers who are listening to this show your career will demand more from you impersonal interactions and more from you and understanding the psychology of helping other people and the psychology of productivity and the psychology of learning your careers going to damn demand more from you in those areas than it ever will demand from you technically of course this is heavily opinionated this is my own perspective on this subject there certainly jobs were this is not true and there are certainly parts and days of your career where this is untrue where truly eat the most value that you're providing is in the technical sphere but for the most part uh these interpersonal connections are going to be the difference maker for you you're listening to developer t my name is jonathan cottrell in my goal on the show is to help you become a better developer.

"I hear and i forget i see and i remember i do and i understand although the origin of this quote is somewhat unknown the it's a chinese proverb but most of the sources citing that come from the 1960s the underlying concept of this quote is still very strong that's where we're going to be talking about in today's episode by name is jonathan cottrell you're listening to developer t michael on this show is to help you become a better developer you may be listening to this new not a software developer guy you don't right code i don't do maybe anything with computers although fewer and fewer people that category as the years where on in as technology continues to imbue our lives and even if you're a software developer you may not see yourself as a software developer the title of developer is very much so incomplete for most people who work in this job tons of people own businesses and also develop software tens of people who listen to the show are also designers who work with software perhaps you are indeed or writing code in your daytoday work enter code continues to become more and more important so as people start listening to this podcast in those varying categories i went to make sure that we're avoiding mislabelling developers i want to make sure that we're avoiding perpetuating a sense of fear of perpetuating a sense of impostor syndrome but talks about impostors syndrome in the past but part of the way that we do this is by not trying to get into extremely technical details in short podcast and that's one of the reasons why we focus on larger more applicable topics that span of basically your entire life you can listen to this episode and five years from now and hopefully it will still be applicable to what you do so we aren't afraid to talk about specific technology we are avoiding those conversations but a lot of the time the better value the you can get out of this podcast is going to be when we talk about things like what we're talking about today today's episode is focused on learning.
