Happy New Year and welcome to Season 3 of Dev Interrupted! 

We couldn't think of a better way to kick off Season 3 of the podcast than with the immensely talented Forrest Brazeal. 

Not only is Forrest the Head of Developer Media at Google Cloud, but he lists being a writer, speaker, cartoonist, cloud architect and AWS Serverless Hero, among his many accolades. 

To top it all off, Forrest is an all around great guy with a passion for education and advocacy. That's why he's working to help educate, train and develop the next generation of cloud engineers. But he needs your help. 

Listen as Forrest explains why so many great engineers get overlooked by companies - and how to stop it. 

Episode Highlights:

  • (1:32) Forrest's "Cloud Bard" title
  • (5:07) Google Cloud's future
  • (13:45) Building the next generation of cloud engineers
  • (19:40) The real reason companies can't find engineers
  • (25:03) Steps to "grow" engineers at your org

Want to cut code-review time by up to 40%? Add estimated review time to pull requests automatically!

gitStream is the free dev tool from LinearB that eliminates the No. 1 bottleneck in your team’s workflow: pull requests and code reviews. After reviewing the work of 2,000 dev teams, LinearB’s engineers and data scientists found that pickup times and code review were lasting 4 to 5 days longer than they should be. 

The good news is that they found these delays could be eliminated largely by adding estimated review time to pull requests!
