On this episode of Refactored…

  • Frank triples the speed limit and commits five other misdemeanors on his way to Target for a PS5! <insert FF7 victory fanfare>
  • StackOverflow announced a while back a savage, malicious, bad-faith attack on the entire software development industry.
    • Who, what, when, where, why, and how? The guys unpack the details.
    • Where do technologists go from here? No one seems to have any great ideas.
  • Jim Collins enters the chat when Frank mentions Good to Great: get the right people on the bus your team, and the wrong people off.
  • Joel Spolsky says every developer needs four walls and a door. Frank says this is the troo troo.
  • Chris has an axe to grind with using the word “engineer” willy nilly. Turns it into a whole rant.
  • Would licensing (and insuring) software developers… matter? The guys discuss whether meaningful liability would change anything about our industry.
  • … and much more!
