The home team chats about quantum computing, Schrödinger’s ill-fated feline, and how software engineers really spend their time.

Episode notes:

The first step in quantum computing? Quantum internet: a network capable of sending quantum information between far-distant computing machines (as in, one on Earth and one on Mars). Still have questions?

In case it’s been a while since your last physics course: Schrödinger’s cat.

Retool’s 2022 State of Engineering Time reveals how software engineers spend their time, what they want to do more (and less) of, and the most frustrating and satisfying parts of their jobs.

A great resource from GitHub for folks working on open-source projects: Why creating a popular OSS library is a marathon, not a sprint.

Cassidy recommends Centered again—the app that helps you stay in your flow state.

Congrats to Ceora on her new role at Auth0!
