On today’s episode we chat with Jody Bailey, Stack Overflow’s new Chief Technology Officer. He recounts his path from physics to sales to programming and shares thoughts on what our organization can build for the future.

Episode Notes


Before joining Stack, Jody spent time at Pluralsight and AWS Training, two roles that helped him to understand the growing market for online educational among self-taught developers. In fact, we interviewed his former colleagues at AWS training in this episode of the podcast.

Enjoy the frustration of debugging your own code. Maybe you it brings you eustress? Ben does not experience this, nor does he like the classic video game Myst. But it takes all kinds.
