We say goodbye to our friend and co-host of The Frontside Podcast, Brandon Hays.
In this episode, Noel Rappin, developer at Table XI, talks about his new book, Take My Money: Accepting Payment on the Web.
In this episode, Yehuda Katz, co-founder of Tilde, OSS enthusiast, and world traveler, talks about what's in store for Ember.
In this episode, Sarah Mei, founder of RailsBridge, Director of Ruby Central, and Chief Consultant of DevMynd Software, talks about the way we write software: What’s right? What’s wrong? How can we do better?
In this episode, LaToya Allen, developer at Big Cartel and founder of SheNomads talks about apprenticeship and mentoring, finding community while working remotely, how companies can be more inclusive for hiring women and people of diverse backgrounds in technology, and avoiding burnout and maintaining balance.
In this episode, Leah Silber, CEO of Tilde, Inc. and Ember.js core team member talks about what she's learned building communities, organizing events, and running a business. We talk about how people can move from "observer" to "participant" and grow their own healthy communities and companies.
In this episode we cover how to handle apprenticeship, share with listeners how they can start participating in mentoring and apprenticeship in their companies and communities, and help them to understand the impact apprenticeship and mentoring can have on everybody involved.
Recently, there was a flurry of activity around one of Brandon's posts about defining the term "senior developer". But he left the purely technical aspects of the role for later discussion, which left a lot of lingering questions.
In this episode, Charles and Brandon dive into the technical side of identifying, hiring, and growing senior developers, and explain The Frontside's somewhat unconventional standards.
After a "perfect storm" of events rocked The Frontside, Charles and Brandon were faced with the prospect of what kind of future they saw, if any, for the business.
In this episode, Brandon and Charles discuss what happened and why, what they are doing to avoid another "perfect storm", and how finding mentors and friends at OpsConf completely changed how they think about running The Frontside.
