SE Podcast #23 – James Portnow

Our guest today is James Portnow of Extra Credits. We are also joined in the studio by David Fullerton. James Portnow is joining us! Extra Credits has been a thing for a few years.

Meet Bubbles (The Stack Exchange Mascot)

This past weekend, CHAOS was working the New York Comic Con (NYCC) here in New York City. It was kind of amazing. But CHAOS wasn’t the only one working hard this weekend…. Meet Bubbles, the Stack Exchange mascot! Some of you might recognize her from her cameo on the podcast video stream a few weeks…

SE Podcast #22 – Paul Biggar

Joel (but no Jeff) is joined this week by Paul Biggar (who Joel originally met when he was a DevDays London 2009 speaker about scripting languages).  Paul currently works at Mozilla, having come off his own (not that successful) Y Combinator startup. Paul’s least favorite scripting language of all time is PHP. Paul works in…

SE Podcast #20 – John Siracusa

Joining Jeff & Joel this week is John Siracusa, writer for Ars Technica – he’s the one who introduced Macs to the Ars world (and apparently ended up converting their entire staff into Mac users). John didn’t know who Jeff was until the Stack Overflow Podcast started. (Pop quiz: What was the podcast called before…

SE Podcast #19 – John Sheehan

Everyone’s back in their home towns this week (Sorry for the audio quality last week. It was Joel’s fault [actually, it was TechCrunch’s fault]). And joining Jeff & Joel this week is John Sheehan, Developer Evangelist for Twilio. Jeff and Joel are bored of board meetings. How do you make them productive or even useful? Brad…

Android > iOS (And Other Statistics)

As you can imagine, we’re sitting on quite a bit of data here about programmers and the technologies they use.  We’ve used this for various things in the past (for instance, you can use your history on the site to promote yourself on Careers 2.0) but we’ve never done a deep dive into the data…

Welcome [Valued Associates That Make Up] CHAOS!

For the past couple months, we’ve had a new team starting up out of our NY office, CHAOS (or if you’re not into that whole brevity thing: Cheerful Helpful Advocates of Stack Exchange).  You’ve probably seen them around some of the sites or run into them in one of the chat rooms – but here’s…

SE Podcast #18

No guest this week as Joel calls in to the show live from the TechCrunch Disrupt Conference in San Francisco since he’s there launching Trello for Fog Creek Software (also why his audio isn’t quite as good as usual, it’s pretty loud there).  There’s still a full hour of Jeff & Joel goodness though so…

SE Podcast #16

So it’s been a couple weeks since our last podcast, but Jeff & Joel are back and ready to catch up on everything they missed.  There’s no guest this week, just 60+ minutes of that Jeff & Joel banter that (we hope) you’ve grown to love. Jeff and Joel discuss “Zombie Poke,” aka facebook.stackoverflow.com deal…
