What is the one thing you would happily commit all your working (or waking, even) hours to? The topic you think about in the shower, study profusely, cannot shut up about? And, how does it relate to the person you are?
Fork Pull Merge Push is a podcast about topics developers obsess over. From solving unsolvable problems to making coding in the everyday easier, Esko Lahti talks to engineers around the world about the topics that have sent them down to their deepest, most mind-bending rabbit holes.
This biweekly show is the audible equivalent of a Proggit thread – expect animated discussion, unapologetically nerdy monologues and a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor.
Still writing bespoke functions and boilerplate to immutably manipulate a complex data structure? Statically typed optics will both do the heavy lifting for you, AND give your TypeScript hustle an unforeseen boost.
Petri Lehtinen started programming with Basic in the mid-90s. Open source projects and functional programming in typed programming languages are close to his heart.
Esko Lahti is an engineer who saw the light after first encountering the partial.lenses optics library in 2017.
Fork Pull Merge Push is a podcast by Reaktor, a strategy, design and technology company changing how the world works.
Reaktor is always on the lookout for bright software developers to work in health, security, emerging technologies, and much more. See www.reaktor.com/careers.
GraphQL has arguably changed the entire paradigm of writing full-stack web applications. In today’s episode, Esko, Ian and Dirk discuss GraphQL, Apollo, and Relay, and why they can, in good conscience, be called a web developer’s cheat codes.
Ian Fosbery is a big believer in good communication—both face-to-face, and through code. For the past 15 years, he has been building products, writing code, and getting excited about everything from good software design to devops and scale.
Dirk Geurs is a technologist interested in creating high-performing software teams. Over the last year, he worked on various cross-platform mobile applications.
Esko Lahti is an engineer who is lazy and loves to take the easy way out. (Editor’s note: No one has ever witnessed Esko take an easy way out of anything.)
React, it turns out, is not what lies at the end of the web development rainbow. In this episode, Esko, Juha and Jussi talk about achieving super fast user interfaces by combining functional programming techniques and embedding observables directly into the DOM with Harmaja.
Juha Paananen started coding with Commodore computers in the 80s and is a proud holder of both IBM WebSphere and XML certificates. Juha is the author of Harmaja, but perhaps best known in the open source community as the creator of the Bacon.js library. He loves functional programming, electronics and generally writing stuff from scratch.
Jussi Saurio quit his job as an English teacher in late 2016 and started teaching himself software development. After three months of intense self-study, he scored his first tech job, and the rest is (fairly recent) history.
Esko Lahti is an engineer who still remembers the struggle of using Apache Wicket and JSP to create web applications.
