There are only a few things that you need to know about today’s episode:

  1. Joel is away so Jay has taken over the podcast using Stack Overflow’s new patented JoelBots™ technology.
  2. We are joined by data scientists Dr. Julia Silge and Dr. Dave Robinson to talk about some of the most interesting and fun questions from this year’s Developer Survey. Over 64,000 developers responded to questions like “What languages would you like to stop using?” and “What fictional programmer is the most annoying/realistic/inspirational?” (And why is the answer to all three “Mr. Robot”?)
  3. Apparently I was the only person in a room chock full -o- nerds that has seen the masterpiece that is Kung Fury. If you have also not seen it, do yourself a favor and click that link.

This week’s constitution question: Pro or Con – When you say that you are going to “table” a topic, does that mean that you are going to talk about it now, or that you are not going to talk about it at all? Answer PRO if you think that it means to discuss it now, or CON if it means that you are not going to talk about it.

Post your answer to twitter using the hashtag #StackOverflowPodcast, with either PRO or CON and your explanation (in this case, keep it short but blonde, just like Jay!). The best explanation, whether on the winning or losing side, will be read on next week’s podcast and win a fabulous Stack Overflow sticker courtesy of the Stack Overflow Podcast.

Last week’s winner:

Congratulations! You get 2 stickers because Jay is drunk with power.
