About this Episode

This week starts off with a discussion about Amos and Chris’s recent trip to Strangeloop and the great talks they saw there. There’s a brief interlude into airports and the World Famous sponge display in the Chattanooga airport.

The main topic this week: How do we handle complexity when designing software. Chris, excited after reading Philosophy of Software Design, gets exceptionally fired up about software design and the tradeoffs that programmers make. The hosts discuss the nature of software developers and the ways that programmer culture influences those decisions.

The hosts turn to discussing the recent changes in Ecto which is mostly Chris ranting for 15 minutes because he doesn’t get it (those who dislike rants will want to turn off their podcast players).
