Another entry in the maintenance series! Throughout the series we’ve discussed building versus buying, building actually maintainable software, maintaining ourselves, open source maintenance, legacy code, and most recently Go project structure. In this 7th installment of the series, we continue narrowing our focus by talking about what to do when projects get big and messy.
We often have code that’s similar between projects and we find ourselves copying that code around. In this episode we discuss what to do with this common code, how to organize it, and what code qualifies as this common code.
Has Go caught your interest, but you just haven’t had the time/opportunity to really dig into it? Are you relatively productive in your current language/ecosystem but wonder if the grass truly is greener on Go’s side of the fence? If so, this episode’s for you!
With the constant demands of work and life we often don’t take much time to ensure that we’re maintaining ourselves. In this third episode of the maintenance series, Kris is joined by co-host Natalie, along with Ian Lopshire to discuss the ways in which we can maintain ourselves in this busy and chaotic world.
Building software is difficult and time consuming, but the maintenance of software is where we spend the majority of our time. In this episode, Ian and sam join Johnny and Kris to discuss how to build actually maintainable software, the features of Go that make it good for writing maintainable software, and different ways that we might define the term “maintenance”.
Mat Ryer and Jerod Santo sit down to review and discuss the MOST and LEAST unpopular “unpopular opinions” since we started keeping track of such things. Also Generics.
Documentation. You can treat it as a dictionary or reference manual that you look up things in when you get stuck during your day-to-day work OR (and this is where things get interesting) you can immerse yourself in a subject, domain, or technology by deeply and purposefully consuming its manuals cover-to-cover to develop expertise, not just passing familiarity.
In this episode we pull in perspectives and anecdotes from beginners and veterans alike to understand the impact of RTFM deeply. Also Sweet Filepath O’ Mine?!?!
