Ads and podcasts is an interesting mix. As a listener, when an episode I'm listening to gets interrupted by an ad that completely wrecks the sound, flow and 'feel' of that podcast - then I'm done listening.

Amazing, I made it! Many thanks +Jim Collison​, it was tons of fun. One thing I definitely like about having an Event is the fact that I get the #HOA automatically in my calendar after confirming my attendance - and Google gets the time zones right :)

Paul Oliver is the first developer for the Hudl and Nelnet joint venture: Studiocode. This guy has seen how microservices has allowed the (Software-as-a-Service) SaaS applications to scale and sing. Paul specializes in SaaS web applications, cloud architecture, devops, and beatboxing. Come see his award-winning* talk on microservices, and maybe, just maybe, you’ll come away as a better human being. *My mom said it was the best talk on microservices she’d ever seen and she gave me a certificate that she had drawn on the back of an electricity bill.
