Software engineering is an ever changing landscape, and so we here at GumGum are constantly striving to sharpen our skills and emulate best practices in our day to day work. However, knowledge is much more valuable when shared and though we already share this knowledge amongst our engineering teams, we want to extend that principle to the outside world as well. So without further ado, we are excited to announce a new software engineering podcast, The Cat Ate My Source Code. Hosted by our engineers: Azam Abdulkadir, Collin Cierlak, and Ben Koch; we will go through technical books considered staples of the community and break them down concept by concept and explain how we can apply them in an enterprise environment, beginning with The Pragmatic Programmer by Andrew Hunt and Dave Thomas -- a book about best practices in software engineering.
Episode one dives into the first chapter of the book and covers ideas on fighting software entropy, maintaining your knowledge portfolio, what makes a programmer pragmatic, and more! Each month our hosts hope to release an episode covering a new chapter and tie in what they learn with their experiences working here at GumGum. So stay tuned for the next episode and subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Play Music!
