Hey folks!
I'm very pleased to be hosting Jeff Atwood as our guest this week.
Jeff was co-creator of Stack Overflow, which is by far one of the
most successful Q&A sites ever created, and is every programmer's
best friend.
Jeff and I talked about all sorts of stuff. I didn't have a fixed
agenda and just let the conversation roll. Jeff talks about quite
a few topics near and dear to his heart, especially hardware and
colocation. He also talks about his $10k bet with John Carmack
over the near future of self-driving cars.
We also talk about Discourse, which is Jeff's newest offering:
An open-source, modernized, full-featured forum software package.
I'm super stoked that Jeff took the time to be on the show.
Make sure you check out Discourse for your next forum!
As always, if you like the content and want to see more great
