Conversations in Software Development

Borja Sotomayor

Conversations in Software Development is a podcast intended primarily for students (at any level) who want to learn more about software development, especially if they intend to pursue a career in that field. More specifically, the goal of the podcast is to expose students to topics and ideas that they don't usually get to see or practice in a classroom setting, including many aspects of software development that are not related to coding. In each episode, we have a conversation with someone who is involved in developing software in some capacity (such as software engineers, product managers, CTOs, etc.), and who share their insights and thoughts on a specific topic.

In this episode, we will be discussing the business of software development. Writing software doesn’t happen in a vacuum, it often happens in the context of a business, and it can be useful to understand exactly where software fits in a business.
To explore this topic, I sat down with
Q McCallum, a data consultant who started his career in the software world (and who, somehow, managed to never really leave it). His consulting practice focuses on on guiding companies on their first steps in data science, machine learning, and AI. With more than two decades of experience dealing with a variety of software companies, Q has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on how these companies operate. While our conversation started on the business of software development, we ended up gravitating more towards discussing the realities of software development (which often happen in a business context).
