  1. Hey Now Richie Rump & Cecil;

    Good podcast. Interesting to hear David Haney’s stories. He sure sounds like he grately dislikes how many young people use phones and social media. I like to hear how he compared coding and then becoming a manager. Stack Overflow sure is the best; it was kinda neat to hear a bit about that great company. Thanks for the info!
