Earlier this year, I was invited to be on the The Grumpy Developer PodcastIt was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed my time on the show, and Mike – the host – and I hit it off.

Recall that the show aims to achieve the following:

If you’re a designer or project manager, you can consider me your friendly developer translator. I’m here to help you bypass the Grumpy Developer Syndrome and achieve a happy transition from design to launch. If you’re a developer…well…you’re welcome. Let’s all celebrate a departure from Happy Designer Land to a world where design-dev-project managers can all get along.

Fast forward a few weeks and I was invited back on to the show for another conversation about a variety of different things all of which were programming related.

  • Some lessons learned from previous blog posts
  • The Obligations of Learning a New Programming Language
  • Various design patterns
  • Advice and thoughts for budding developers who have time to dive to into a variety of languages
  • What would I be doing if I were not working with WordPress and associated technologies?
  • Why WordPress is seen as an application with a low barrier to entry

  • …and more

Comments on this particular post are closed as I’d rather the discussion – if any – happen on the episode’s page. And if you’ve not already subscribed to the show, I recommend it.

The show features some good discussion and a lot of great guests who are worth listening to even if they aren’t working specifically in your field.
