Ep. 50 – The Pragmatic Programmer – Part I (Dave Thomas)



Dave Thomas has done a lot for the programming community. He coined the phrase “DRY” (Don’t Repeat Yourself). He popularized the idea of code katas. He was one of the signers of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development, and he’s the founder of the Pragmatic Bookshelf publishing company. But despite all that, he refers to himself as simply a programmer. In this episode, he shares his own coding journey, gives advice to new developers on how to navigate the mountain of information available, and how he ended up becoming a publisher.

Now, she translates that love of design to code, building prototypes and design systems at IBM Design. She talks to us about her love of design and dev, how she open sourced her personal goals, and how CodeNewbies can better manage and achieve their coding goals.
