Cheers guys for the work on this one! Really enjoyed the Docker talk, and hope to hear more in the future. :)

Please don't burn yourselves out to rush these out, especially if they are taking your personal time to produce! I think we'd all rather 6 deep dive podcasts per year than 52 podcasts where Dan gets progressively more tired, and takes Brad's crown as Sleepy Duder!

Honestly one of my favourite podcasts - love how down-to-earth you guys are, and how you're not afraid to go deep on technical subjects! Please keep up the great work.

I've listed a few ideas for subjects, just as I was listening to this episode. A few may have been mentioned already, and they're not all gold (I'll admit):

  • Do you have any favourite frameworks or tools?

  • What does Dan's/the team's design workflow look like at Giant Bomb?

  • Do you have any favourite books on development or design? Tangentially - any favourite fiction?

  • Are there any problems you’re particularly proud of solving in the past, either at GB or elsewhere?

  • How do you manage documentation and issue tracking?

  • Docker/Kubernetes is super interesting! I'm looking at making a similar infrastructure change at work, so can't wait to hear about it (and hope the move goes well for you!).

  • Have you worked on any open-source stuff? If so, how did you get into that?

  • Have you ever been involved in any hackathon-style events? Any stories?

  • Could anyone talk security - using any interesting techniques/technologies?

  • Are there any design trends that have really grabbed you in the past, or that are interesting to you now/in the near-future?

Peace!

Side note: are bullet-lists not rendering bullets in the comments?

This is almost cruel! Thought Vinny was just doing a bit again with the caller, then thought I was having a weird deja vu at first. Still a funny one!

Appreciate you guys doing this! Really hope this becomes a regular thing. Design and dev (front-end, back-end, side-end... anything) is of great interest to me! Don't worry about going inside-baseball or getting into the weeds, either - really interested to learn about specific processes/techniques/technologies

Such a strong couch on this one. Cowboy is still the GOAT!! Here's hoping for another technical retrospective/chat with Brad at some point in the future.

If you're in the UK, you want the Directors Cut on iTunes, which is only available for rental at the moment.

Always love to hear Cowboy's take on just about anything! Still super grateful for that time he sat down with Brad and talked shop about the Uncharted franchise.

Thanks for taking the time!

Rock Band, Rock Band.

Maybe it's a Rock, maybe it's a Band now.

Rock Band now! Rock Band now! Rock Band now! ROCK BAND.

I hate this so much!!

It's ok to be wrong sometimes.
