Ep. 55 – Open Source Contributor (Steve Klabnik)



The first open source project Steve Klabnik got involved with was a pretty big one – he took on Hackety Hack, the beloved application that helped kids learn to code. He only meant to help out, but when no else joined, he ended up running the show, and diving headfirst into the open source world. Now, many years and pull requests later, Klabnik shares how he went from Hackety Hack to contributing to Rails to working full-time on the Rust language, and gives us a beginner-friendly overview of the open source world and many lessons he’s learned along the way.

Ep. 54 – The Hacker (Jonathan Barronville)



Jonathan hacks away on his search engine at Harvard’s Innovation Lab, fine tuning it for the fashion queries his startup handles. He doesn’t have a computer science degree. He doesn’t have a degree at all. But at 21, he’s been able to hack together a tech education that involves reading academic papers, implementing solutions he finds, and lots and lots of searching. He shares his process for hacking and what he’s learned along the way.
