  1. What it's like to work for Amazon

    Google, Amazon, Apple, etc, From the outside, all of the big names of SIlicon Valley are kind of a crown jewel everyone would like to add to their resume.
    Now that Arlo has been working for Amazon for a decent length of time, I'd love to hear a grounded review of the interview process, day-to-day activities, culture, anything that he can share without getting himself fired.

    • A million questions about certifications

      Is it worth it? Hows does it benefit you as a developer(both in everyday coding as well as your long term career). Does it make you a better programmer? Do you use the stuff you learn in certification exam? What is the recommended experience level before attempting to write the exam. Recommended certifications.

        • Desktop Setup and Workflow

          Most dev tutorials say your setup and workflow should be "whatever works best for you". But, must entry level devs DONT KNOW what works best for them because they just do the best they can with their App and Desktop defaults....Most entry level devs are not aware of all the different configurations and plugins that can make their workflow experience more efficient. I think you guys should do an episode(s) where you describe youre Desktop setups and workflow, to show how we can configure our setup for optimum efficiency as web developers

              • Hear me RoR

                Ruby 101 really lit a fire under my ass to learn this great language. How about a complimentary lesson on Rails? Ruby 102? RoR 101?
                I saw the User Voice notes of Ruby 101 mentioned a follow up lesson. Perhaps having a topic here can gauge interest.

                • Testing websites options

                  I recently came in a company, the last programmer made a full copy of the website for testing purpose and it was partly broke when I started working. That programmer is not working here anymore, the real website work and the customer want the testing website repaired. I think a "copy" site is not a good testing technique (some update are made on the real website and not on the test or the other way). What are the alternatives?

                    • CoffeeScript

                      What impact has it?
                      Will it replace conventional JavaScript in some time?
                      Where to use it? Libraries (Spine), ServerSide (node.js)
                      What does it mean that popular Frameworks like Ruby on Rails make it default.

                      Would love to hear what you guys think about it :)

                      • PHP Frameworks

                        There are lots of frameworks out there for PHP. How to decide to use a framework? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the most popular ones? (CI, Zend, Cake, Symfony, Kohana) What is MVC and HMVC? How to choose which framework to use?

                        • Introduction to Node.JS

                          Thanks to the new V8 engine, Javascript is fast enough to run on the server. Moreover, there are now thousands of modules, a robust community, and it's own conferences separate from Javascript. Is Node.js going mainstream or yet another hobbyist language?

                                With NodeJS' popularity and the NoSQL movement it feels like NodeJS and MongoDB is new stack (the new LAMP). You have a blazing fast, scalable webserver and backend language + proven and scalable database system who both talk javascript. Match made in heaven (specially if you add Sencha as the front end).
