secretly I will listen to these most of these again… and again… searching for trade secrets and inspiration.
This is now a bit old. Podcast #1 is circa 2008. However it is surprisingly still really relevant. I am 60+ hours in now and thoroughly enjoying the media. I have become a big fan of Jeff Attwood and Joel Spolsky even tho I am not a Microsoft fan. This podcast is so rich with information and even tho it is not an ‘interviewing’ based podcast. They have lots of interesting interviews with pertinent individuals throughout the industry. If you want to build something interesting, and large on the internet you will be very interested in this podcast.
I’m huge Derick fan, I am currently reading his Building Backbone plugins book.

Conversation with Sal Khan
Mighty Messaging Patterns
Making Apache Suck less for hosting Python web applications
I wrote a blog entry on these techniques entitled Stop making Apache Suck!
Learning from StackOverflow ( 2009 )
This is a talk by Joel Spolsky on how StackOverflow is built, which is ironic since Jeff Attwood n friends built it. Again I am late to the party, but better to party late than not at all.
Messaging at Scale at Instagram
I think I actually found this in 2013, however I wrote a long blog post about it in 2014 The web request is a scary place So I wanted to include it. I have watched this many times and I must say that the more knowledgeable I become with the infrastructure the more this talk gives.
