Podcast: TFW You Accidentally Delete Your Database

We chat with two of the most creative and connected developers in New York about what they're building and how they learn.

It’s Thanksgiving in the United States this week, so we’re releasing the podcast a day early. This week we skipped the banter sessions so we could spend more time on the interview with Juan Pablo Buriticá and Brian Brennan from Splice.

Brian shares a delightful tale of the time one of his co-workers accidentally deleted the company’s database, and how they recovered it through binary transaction logs. No better way to learn than a trial by fire.

Juan explains why typing is taking over frontend development. First off, we discovered unit testing, and typecasting can make that a lot less painful.

Paul dreams of a day when object-oriented PHP runs in the browsers. Sara has had nightmares about similar scenarios.

Splice has lots of interesting products for musicians and technologists and they’re hiring.

Brian helped to build the amazing Brooklyn JS, so if you’re in the NYC area, be sure to check it out.

Juan helps to run an amazing community of developers in Colombia, as well as the Bogota JS meetup.

Dylan TallChief made a drum machine in Excel and it’s something special.
