Unruly Software

Software without the Soft Skills

About the show

Join two uneducated fools for a magical romp through the world of software and development.

We discuss testing, best practices, and what it's like to be an engineer in todays microservice, monolith free world. We typically discuss our lives writing typescript monorepos for a living but on occasion we discuss AWS, GCP, devops, infrastructure as code, nodejs, react, angular, golang, css, and anything else that might be javascript or startup related.

    No bloated ORM is safe this episode. Zapatos, react-query and other libraries are incredible and have replaced many of our old disgusting tools like Typeorm, Hibernate and Redux.

    Lockdown Special! We've made our infrastructure and deployment processes as boring and vanilla as possible. Dumping serverless/CloudFormation, adopting Yarn v2 and using vanilla typescript for our pipelines have saved us many headaches.
