In this interview we're covering: Importance of soft skills in engineering leadership Essential leadership soft skills Story about building up leadership soft skills Practices to improve leadership soft skills Common challenges for engineering managers Helping direct reports improve their leadership skills Integrating leadership soft skills into your engineering culture Excerpt from the interview: "I had a heated argument with a friend of mine at Ustream, and he told me, “This is why I don’t like working with you.” At first, I thought, I’m just trying to find the best solution, but really I was defending my ego in that conversation. Moments like that made me realize that I should improve, and research why I react the way I do in certain situations. That’s when I started to learn about my psychological drivers. The first step I took was learning about personality types. This didn’t give me a lot of answers, but it helped me understand why others are stupid..." https://codingsans.com/blog/leadership-soft-skills (Click here to read the full interview!)

Financial Planning
It’s no secret that a major perk to working in development is the salary. Developers are often paid higher than the average salary, and as you move up in a company, you can see significant growth in your income. We all know financial literacy is often skipped in early education, which is why this week we’re talking all things financial planning with our special guest, Shannon Lee Simmons, to teach you what you need to know about managing your finances as a high earner.

How much should be kept in cash vs. investments? * [19:14] How should you balance your lifestyle with wealth building?

Becoming Data Driven with Apache Kafka and Stream Processing ft. Daniel Jagielski
When it comes to adopting event-driven architectures, a couple of key considerations often arise: the way that an asynchronous core interacts with external synchronous systems and the question of “how do I refactor my monolith into services?” Daniel Jagielski, a consultant working as a tech lead/dev manager at VirtusLab for Tesco, recounts how these very themes emerged in his work with European clients.  Through observing organizations as they pivot toward becoming real time and event driven, Daniel identifies the benefits of using Apache Kafka® and stream processing for auditing, integration, pub/sub, and event streaming. He describes the differences between a provisioned cluster vs. managed cluster and the importance of this within the Kafka ecosystem. Daniel also dives into the risk detection platform used by Tesco, which he helped build as a VirtusLab consultant and that marries the asynchronous and synchronous worlds. As Tesco migrated from a legacy platform to event streaming, determining risk and anomaly detection patterns have become more important than ever. They need the flexibility to adjust due to changing usage patterns with COVID-19. In this episode, Daniel talks integrations with third parties, push-based actions, and materialized views/projects for APIs. Daniel is a tech lead/dev manager, but he’s also an individual contributor for the Apollo project (an ICE organization) focused on online music usage processing. This means working with data in motion; breaking the monolith (starting with a proof of concept); ETL migration to stream processing, and ingestion via multiple processes that run in parallel with record-level processing.

Mark Fussell on Dapr 1.0 - Episode 130
Joining Jeffrey today is return guest, Mark Fussell! Mark works on the Azure Incubations Team and is the Product Manager for Dapr, the Distributed Application Runtime. He has been working at Microsoft for over 19 years and has been a passionate advocate for building microservice-based applications for the last 10 years. He has a proven track record of building innovative computing platforms, running large-scale cloud services, and starting new million-dollar businesses within corporations. Last time Mark was on the show, he and Jeffrey discussed Dapr and what it can do for developers. In this episode, Mark and Jeffrey discuss the new 1.0 release of Dapr. Mark shares how to build, test, deploy, and monitor an application that’s built and deployed using Dapr. He speaks about the team’s journey for the last six months with working on the 1.0 release, the new and exciting changes with the 1.0 release, and all that Dapr is currently capable of.

[7:07] Is Dapr aimed squarely at processes such as backend services with no UI (that either need to be triggered by something or to pop up and do something)? [9:19] Is Dapr only for Javascript apps? Is it for .NET developers? How is it positioned? [11:55] The strategy of Azure and the positioning of Dapr. [13:25] What are some of Dapr’s main goals? Can Dapr be as simple as a single backend process to a whole bunch of backend processes? [21:53] A word from Azure DevOps Podcast’s sponsor: Clear Measure. [22:24] Is there overlap with Dapr and open-source distributed application frameworks for .NET such as MassTransit and NServiceBus? Did the Azure Incubations Team discuss these when developing Dapr? [24:19] Jeffrey and Mark dive into the operational side of Dapr. Mark speaks about how to build, test, deploy, and monitor an application that’s built and deployed using Dapr. [28:24] Does Dapr integrate with Application Insights on its own set of custom events and custom metrics? [29:28] What does deploying with ASP.NET look like? Is it possible, with Dapr, that you would not need to deploy a second process (whether it be Windows Service, Azure Function, or Containers) and you can simply bundle it in with a regular app service web application deployment?
