We’re excited to have a special guest host this week, Holly Peck, Director of Women Who Code Vancouver. She joins us for the interview portion of the podcast.

Alex Moxin and Drew Ogryzek open the show talking about interviews at Drew’s workplace, Talentful, The Bike Shed Podcast, and discuss Moxin’s coding progress which you can read more about in her blog. Select meetups around town Moxin and Ogryzek attended last week were the Vancouver Tech Meetup, which Drew hosted at Beanworks, and the DDD/CQRS/ES Meetup at DCTRL.

Highlighted meetups around town Moxin and Ogryzek are looking forward to this week are Hackernest on Monday, January 30th and the continuation of creating the product nota at DDD/CQRS/ES on Thursday, Feb 2nd.

Our guest this week is Renee Hildebrand, technical writer at IT Glue.
