Welcome back to the Stack Overflow podcast episode #112 recorded Thursday, July 13th at Stack Overflow HQ in NYC. Today’s hosting duties fall to Jay Hanlon as Joel is still busy alphabetizing his socks. Joining him is newly minted CTO David Fullerton, Fog Creek Community Engineer and Star Wars scholar Jenn Schiffer, and can-totally-tell-the-difference-between-Moff-and-Mon-Mothma podcast producer Jess Pardue.

Today’s highlights::

  • We are honored to have special guest Sarah Clatterbuck share her Developer Story; from generating “random” numbers in middle school to studying applied design in college and then directing the Presentation Infrastructure teams at LinkedIn. She also works with high school CS classes and sits on the board of the Girl Scouts of Northern California in order to help develop girls’ early interest in STEM fields.
  • Jay gets quite indignant about Jess and Jenn’s lack of Star Wars recall.
  • Jenn rants about how bad voice recognition really is. Her Echo Dot is cowering in fear under her bed…
  • David ‘s new oven is weirdly specific:
  • Introducing Stack Overflow Channels! Everything you love about Stack Overflow, in a Private space just for your team. Be one of the first to try it.
  • In the News: Is it ethical to automate your job and not tell your company? Also, Jenn is definitely an anarchist…

This week’s Constitution Question is brought to you by User Diederik Hattingh via Twitter where you can follow him as@Diederik_za: “In markdown, when adding to the middle of a numbered list, do you fix the subsequent numbers?” Answer with PRO if you must correct the numbers, or CON if you think “Why bother? The syntax will straighten itself out.” Chime in using #stackoverflowpodcast on twitter. The answer that makes us chuckle, whether on the winning or losing side, will be read on next week’s podcast and win a few SO stickers.

This week’s winner, for the first time ever, is also the amendment proposer! It’s not rigged, we promise.

Thanks for listening! We’ll be back next week.
