Ep. 071 - Terms of Service (too long didn’t read) and we talk thick and thin javascript clients for fun

May 4, 2020

Pop quiz for you Bob & Kevin Show listeners - when was the last time you COMPLETELY read a terms of service agreement for a website or software you have used? Yeah, we don't think we ever have either. Enter the hero of our story (sort of) https://tosdr.org/!

Yup, this site has a plugin that we eventually determined is quite helpful, but the site itself also gives you a quick snapshot of how crappy most companies are about their terms of service. Anyway, check it out and let us know what you think.

We also took some time at the beginning of the episode to discuss React JS and other javascript frameworks and how they impact front end web development.

So, we try a cold open for the first time and would love to know what you think of it. In the actual episode, Bob & Kevin have an interesting conversation about how much learning is required to be a developer today and where code camps fit into the equation. Kevin found some pretty expensive camps with some pretty big promises. We cover some interesting aspects of development and the various levels of knowledge that it might take to get specific tasks down. Well rounded or specialized... we discuss it all!

This week Bob & Kevin tacked the build vs. buy debate when it comes to web enabled technology. We talked about several angles and scenarios and shared some of our own personal and proffessional build vs. buy dilemmas. We even consulted an inc.com article to try to give us some parameters for making the difficult decision to build or buy. https://www.inc.com/yoram-solomon/a-simple-tool-for-better-make-vs-buy-decisions.html

In this episode, we are joined by special guest, 

Ep. 007 - Are full stack developers a myth?

Ep. 007 - Are full stack developers a myth?

June 20, 2018

Tonight, we welcome a special guest - Mr. Jamie Pollock and the three of us spend our time discussing what it we think it means to be a full stack developer and how that developer (if they truly exist) fits into various development scenarios. We compare and contrast our own development styles and areas of expertise, as well as share experiences that helped shape us into the developers we are today. We even discuss the role of imposter syndrome briefly and how that may or may not impact how a developer defines their skill set. Finally, we answer the burning question of whether or not we would declare ourselves as full stack developers on our resumes. We had fun, we hope you enjoy it too!
