Of course, the stance each panelist is taking is assigned ahead of time. Is that how they really feel? Tune in and find out!

They also dive into code maintainability, and end by discussing the whiplash shift in the tech industry from “hottest market for engineers in history” to “oh noes everything is stopping!”
