In this episode I talk with Daniel Marbach, software engineer, architect, evangelist, family man, father, public speaker and so much more. We touched on how his first failure shaped his career and made him much stronger. We discussed the remote-ness of his current company and how this makes them a very "particular" (pun intended) company. We talked about mentoring and how it helps Daniel become a bit better everyday. Finally we talked about hiring for culture, and how it is done at the company Daniel is working for: Particular Software.

The guest this week is Laura Savino. Laura is a freelance iOS developer whose non-tech passions include foreign languages and teaching. We started talking about languages, how we learn them, and how kids books could help us there. We diverged toward public speaking and how you structure a talk. We finally touched on being on stage, playing music and how this relates to public speaking. Note: Skype unfortunately had a couple hiccups during the call. I managed to edit most of them. Two moments had to remain as not to hinder the understanding though.

In this episode I talk to Ivo Vutov, Consultant Developer for Microsoft in Germany. Ivo shares with us how he started to code, then how he came to working with Microsoft through the Student Partner Program and how he evolved from there. We touched on the new offices of Microsoft in Munich and the effects this revamp had on the teamwork. We spoke about remote work, diversity and accessibility. We flew over selling yourself, applying for a job and much more... Note: There were a couple drops during the communication but that shouldn't alter the comprehension.

In this episode I talk to Manuela Rink about her career path. Manu has taken a few roles over her still short career and ended up mixing two worlds that I personally never thought could really match. Let's cut to the chase, Manu is an iOS freak (in a good way ;) ), who is also a developer evangelist at Microsoft. We go over her career, her place at Microsoft and the role of an evangelist. And we finally touched on her work as a female role-model, being on the stage in an - unfortunately - still mainly male industry. Note: I discovered after the recording that my end of the call is pretty low, as well as some weird clicking noise on the beginning of the recording that I could not really remove. Sorry about that.

In this episode, I talked to Damien Beaufils, a french software craftsman working in Paris. Damien shared the experience he made on his current project ; how he helped his team focus on quality to improve the whole software. We talked about the different kind of tests, the test pyramid and Damien even shared a very good recipe on how to improve test quality in a legacy or project lacking tests. Nota: We unfortunately had a couple hickups toward the middle of the recording, but what Damien was saying is pretty clear anyway!

A special podcast with 3 guests, Rui Carvalho, Peter Even and Maxime Sanglan, the organizers of the NCrafts conference in Paris. In this episode, we doubled back on the origins of this craftsmanship conference, its birth in the .NET space and growth toward a language agnostic craftsmanship conference up to the third edition which happened this year. We diverged onto how to get people into craftsmanship, what the 3 organizers took out of this exercise that consumed so much of their time and why you should participate in such conferences... and not just for the talks!
