Introducing Compiler

Compiler is an original podcast from Red Hat discussing tech topics big, small and strange. In this episode, Angela Andrews and Brent Simoneaux dive into whether or not managers should learn to code. They speak with Red Hatters who are vocal about what role, if any, that managers have in the code base—and why they fight to keep their hands on keys for as long as they can.
