Mr. 4th Programming Conversations
"Investing in Tools" Round Table Part 1
Show Notes

I talk with the round table from the Handmade Seattle 2022 memory management podcast, featuring: Evan Ovadia, John Austin, Ryan Fleury

Our conversation is split into two parts. In this part we discuss: making the choice to invest in a particular tool, making the choice to build a custom tool, estimating metrics of time spent on various parts of a project, and the reliability and value of such estimations, forming theories about the systems we build, and approaches to bug tracking.
