In this episode, I gathered questions from listeners in our Slack channel and Twitter feed. The questions I answered include:

  • How does the defense industry affect software engineering?
  • How can a programmer learn to deeply understand code?

We always want more feedback and questions. Please email me, join Slack, and fill out our survey!
