Tabs and Spaces Podcast

Tabs and Spaces Podcast

Tabs AND Spaces is a podcast put together by three developers with over

40 years of collective experience in software development. We're here to tell you what we really think about the difficult problems that face software developers throughout their career and we promise that we won't always agree! Every month we meet new people who come on the show to share their experiences and make jokes at our expense, so what's not to like?

The one and only Joe Zack of Coding Blocks fame joins us for an evening of dissecting the term Fullstack and how we use it within the industry. Listen and enjoy as each of us almost rhythmically flit between being in favour of calling yourself full stack and being vehemently against it. If there's a correct answer we certainly didn't find it but we had fun trying.

This episode has been inspired by one of our listeners Shachar Langbeheim who wrote to us to ask us for our thoughts on programming paradigms. They wanted to know what we thought were the best times to use them and how to get the best results with each of other. While our experience using a lot of different programming paradigms was relatively limited we've never let our inexperience get in the way of having an opinion before, and we weren't about to start now!

This episode was inspired by one of our listeners holywolf232 whose codebase was getting the better of their impulses. They've asked how what techniques we have to share around being able to stop ourselves refactoring every little thing and just get down to the business of writing great software. The fact that holywolf232 might have thought we wrote great software in the first place is obviously something we are hopefully assuming!

Let's be honest for a moment, developers lie. They lie to themselves, to their colleague, to their bosses. They lie about themselves, about the work they've done and the state of their projects. But are all these lies going to come back to haunt them or are they harmless little white lies? In this episode recorded live at the .Next Gen meetup group we dig into the topic of Lies every developer tells.
