119: Aha! Moments with Steven Proctor

In this weeks episode we are lucky to have Steven Proctor back on the show. We start off discussion by congratulating him on 82 episodes of Functional Geekery, and the commitment it takes to do a podcast and not just ‘podfade’. From here we move on to highlight any commonalities he notices with people getting into FP, how he stays on-top of the latest advancements and how he finds the guests he wishes to speak to. This leads us on to compare learning functional concepts within a language you already know vs. in a totally different lanaguge which is rooted in the principles. Finally, we chat about interesting projects that are on his radar and advice that he has for people who wish to begin exploring FP.


Non-recording, updating Laravel, and huge manatees

After a hiccup that led to having to re-record the first five minutes of the show, Jake and Michael talk about manually updating Laravel apps and the virtues of doing so regularly, a brief outburst on politics, and comparing modern JavaScript frameworks with legacy jQuery.

Oh the huge manatee!

118: API Ramblings with Phil Sturgeon

In this weeks show we are joined by Phil Sturgeon to discuss all things API development. We start off by mentioning Phil’s new job at WeWork, Startup life/culture and switching between different development philosophies. We move on to highlight how he got into API development, the reasons behind writing the book “Build APIs You Won’t Hate” and a future video-series he has in the pipeline. This leads on to discuss common misconceptions of REST and RPC, API tooling available and the different data-formats present. Finally, we mention the importance of good error-handling within an API (no 200 responses!) and some of the bad-stories he has heard/encountered on the topic.
