This was our first test run at podcasting, so content and audio quality is not the greatest. Still, if you're interested in the history of JUXT it might be worth a listen!
You can also find the video on youtube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3Dbr48M2MI&feature=youtu.be

Topics: Crux news, Edge news, debate on Clojure Spec and talking to our newest hire Carlos about what its like to be new in the industry.
Topics: Open Source, making the world a better place and Technology in the government (specifically the NHS) and how we could fix it.
This one was done in a bit of a rush so no video or chapters! Starting from the next episode we will be bringing them back though.

In this episode, we dive into the concept of a 'record?. We examine what makes records technically superior to triples and tables and go back in time to uncover humanity?s long-standing preference for simple records.
Juxtaposed against some software of the 90s like Microsoft Access, Lotus Notes, and Visual Basic, there is a distinct contrast in our current world. Malcolm argues that with today's fixation on Continuous Deployment, software has become static, brittle, and inflexible. In this episode, we talk about how users have consequently become disempowered. Why have we have created a culture so dependent on developers? What is the hidden cost of this incrementalism? And, how can we redistribute agency to users again?
The separation of storage and compute is a key industry trend impacting all kinds of organisations and is acutely important for the design of modern database systems. In this episode, we discuss how general desires for increased availability, better scalability, and lower costs, has heavily influenced our own plans for XTDB's future 2.0 architecture. Listen to insights from the team, including a sneak peek of the kinds of things we're cooking up!
It?s a pleasure to have our friends Dominic Monroe and Ray McDermott (from Defn podcast) join us in this episode and share their aspirations for the future of software. Ray?s vision includes a new editor in Clojure for Clojure called 'REPL-acement'.
Find out more below and make sure to stop by Ray's talk at the :clojureD conference on the 11th of June at 13:15 CEST.
