Command Line Heroes

Yes, I am well over 3 years late to the party but I just recently discovered an interesting podcast that blends computing history with today’s coding and nerdiness of all kinds. It’s called ‘Command Line Heroes‘, narrated by Saron Yitbarek and is produced by Red Hat.

The first seasons starts off with a look at the OS wars of the 1990s and then jumps fast forward to Agile, DevOps, Containers, Cloud and all those other buzzwords that have been so perverted in recent year. Instead of falling in tune, Saron explains how those things came about and how they are actually supposed to work and to be used.

No marketing bullshit and subtle instead of heavy handed advertisement for the producing company. For me, that’s how social media from companies should look like. The last company I remember that has understood this was Nokia back in the days, a long long time ago, when Symbian was the thing.

Season two dives into more of the same and I have yet to listen to most of those episodes. This is because I fast forwarded to the third season, in which ‘Command Line Heroes’ jumps the history of open source software on one side of the spectrum and current coding and computing topics on the other side. Season four will start February 28, and I can’t wait for the first episode!

Cool stuff, so I thought I’d make you aware of it. Enjoy!
