Welcome everyone to the Malformed Core Dumps podcast! This is your host, Chad Gibbons, and this is our very first episode of this podcast, so a big thank you for checking us out.
So, what’s this podcast all about? In short, it’s about personal story-telling from technology industry practitioners about their career journey.
We’ll have interviews with folks about their own experiences, and will likely go off on tangents about technology topics we find interesting.
My goal for this podcast isn’t a secret: I’m hoping to take the artificial barriers to entry out of our industry, both for people thinking about joining the field, and those who have already been involved for a long time.
