We gather around the Festivus pole this holiday season and before we get into the Airing of Grievances, we discuss our favorite tools. No, not people. Actual tools. Srsly.

I figured this title was appropriate considering it's been a month since our last episode. We've all been incredibly busy so we hope you've been patient waiting and maybe, just maybe it was worth the wait! We've crammed quite a bit into this episode which is all about testing. Follow the more link to see the show notes for this particular episode and don't forget to click one of the share buttons there to let all your friends know about the podcast!In this episode we're primarily talking about Unit Testing. While that's the focus of the podcast, we also touch on other types of testing so you'll get a basic understanding of the fundamental differences between the types of tests. Just keep in mind - the testing we're talking about is writing code to test your code. It's not someone going through and clicking on items in your UI to make sure they work. We're talking about code testing code to preemptively find problems before they become big problems.
It's the holiday season and we would be remiss if we didn't mention our favorite games right now.

In this episode, we have a discussion about what type of technology stack you should choose when you go to create your own project whether it be for profit or an open source type of deal. As programmers, we often struggle with balancing our ADHD tendencies to code in every language known to man, or actually trying to accomplish something and create a finished product! With that in mind, check out the show notes for Episode 17 to go see all the things we mentioned in the show.

Welcome back for part 2 of the podcast about databases. In this half, we discuss several of the things we believe that developers should know about databases. From joins to unions, group by's and indexing, we try to touch on a lot of the items that most developers should at least be familiar with when working with database systems.
