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.
