The Datanauts engage in their on-going mission to break down technical silos with a discussion about software engineering. Their guest is Jeff Meyerson, a software developer and host of the Software Engineering Daily podcast.
They start with a brief discussion about his podcast and Chris recommends a few episodes (see below). They also talk about why having some level of understanding about software is essential for a technology career, especially if you want to control your own destiny.
They also examine the role that software plays across traditional data center silos, and drill into the impact of software on networking. Jeff also shares some essential concepts that network engineers should be familiar with, and key ideas in networking that software developers would be wise to understand.
They also explore the role of APIs, and how APIs may serve as a common ground between different technology disciplines.
