The Development Hell Podcast

Episode 11: From Gas Station Attendant to Java Developer

| Comments

Empty Pockets by Terry Johnston

This time out we are blessed by the presence of Joël Perras, PHP developer extraordinaire and Fictive Kin brosef of Ed. We explore Joël’s rags-to-riches story: a young academic schlepping coffee and 44oz soft drinks at a gas station, where he’s discovered by a grizzled dev team manager in need of Java skills. From there it’s been a whirlwind of web sites, programming languages, and more ops than you can shake a stick at.

Actually I was sleepy and wasn’t really listening for the first half-hour. I bet it’s good though.

Feel free to hit us up on Twitter at @dev_hell or harass Ed and Chris directly.
