Season 1 Trailer

Season 1 Trailer

As software has become more important, so the demand for developers has increased. Whether you call yourself an engineer, a programmer, developer, hacker or coder, more and more organizations are building skilled technology teams to change how they achieve their mission. Developers make big decisions, yet they face an onslaught of sales and marketing combined with an unrelenting velocity of releases to keep up with. From open source, cloud, large public company or small startup, there has never been more choice for developers. That's why we started Console, a free weekly email digest of the best tools and beta releases for developers. Every Thursday we highlight two interesting developer tools, saying what we like and what we don’t like. And now we’re launching a podcast. We'll be kicking off with our first few episodes, each no more than 15 minutes, discussing the tools featured in the Console newsletter with David Mytton (Co-founder of Console) and Jean Yang, CEO of Akita Software. Jean earned her PhD in software correctness and programming language design from MIT and then became a professor in computer science at Carnegie Mellon University before she started Akita to build the future of API observability. So join Jean and David for our first episode, on 8th July 2021. And in the meantime, subscribe to the Console newsletter.
