Ignite Your Coding

Andy Hunt has been behind some of the biggest ideas in everyday software development in the past decade. From co-authoring the Agile Manifesto and The Pragmatic Programmer to starting The Pragmatic Bookshelf, one of the most influential developer book publishers, to helping bring about the rise of MVC web frameworks, chances are that he’s had some influence on your day-to-day work. In this one-hour webcast, we’ll talk with Andy about the ideas in his latest book, Pragmatic Thinking and Learning. We’ll discuss why your brain is where software development really happens, how you can refactor your thinking and as he puts it, “just the plain old weirdness that is people”.

Hi Joey,

I tried to subscribe to the iTunes podcast but the links you provided go to Security Bulletins for the Regular IT Guy.

Also, I tried to post this same comment on the CDN Devs blog, but my comment doesn’t appear.

Could you set up the iTunes podcast so I can get all the IYC broadcasts?
