Damo's Podcast Highlights 2016 #41

I subscribe to many podcasts, you can see the list as it was in 2015 here: Developer podcasts v2 but I thought I would start to keep a weekly log of the episodes that I found interesting or useful in some way.

[Software Engineering Daily] Continuous Delivery with David Rice
  • In order to move software updates from the development team to production, companies do a variety of things. Some teams might email files to each other or use FTP or even floppy disks. Most companies today at least use version control systems like Git together with separate servers for development and production. When code is ready to move to production, a build that is on the development server gets copied over to the production servers, and the production servers begin serving real users.
  • This process is known as deployment, and over the last few decades companies have started deploying more rapidly (even “continuously”), leading to faster iterations and better feedback loops between the software development team and the users of the product. A particularly effective version of this workflow is known as continuous delivery.
  • In today’s episode, David Rice from ThoughtWorks joins the show to give a short history of continuous delivery, and how continuous delivery actually looks in practice.

[StrangeLoop 2011] Simple Made Easy - Rich Hickey
  • Rich Hickey emphasizes simplicity’s virtues over easiness’, showing that while many choose easiness they may end up with complexity, and the better way is to choose easiness along the simplicity path.

[Magpie Talk Show] Microservices, cloud and Adrian Cockcroft
