Eugene Yokota: Coding with Friends and sbt

SEASON: 1 - EPISODE: 4

INTRO

This month I had the pleasure to sit down with Euguene Yokota and talk about some fascinating topics that range from coding on the weekend with friends, to being a maintainer of one of the most widely used tools in the Scala ecosystem, to the importance of diversity and inclusion in order for Scala not only to grow, but to maintain the numbers it has. You may know Eugene from being the maintainer of sbt, the tremendous amount of work he's put into Scala build tooling, his blog that has a great mix of music, food, and technology posts, or from his herding cats series. After years at Lightbend Eugene is now a developer at Twitter working full time on Engineering Effectiveness via build tools like Bazel. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome him to the show.
