April showers bring… great episodes?
We think so. Enjoy
Bonus: Justin Mitchell, Yac — codestory.co
Justin noticed over the years of working remote that the accepted culture of getting stuff done was to have meetings all day. He and his team started thinking about how to increase the amount of communication that happened during the day, without increasing the number of meetings.
E17: Matt Debergalis, Apollo GraphQL — codestory.co
Previously, Matt co-wrote an open source product called Meteor, attempting to make it simpler and faster to write JS applications. At the core of the tool, there was a capability to write a query to move data around, instead of writing the code. They took that capability, and formed what they are focused on today.
Bonus: Dave MacLeod, ThoughtExchange — codestory.co
Along his consulting route, Dave picked up some facilitation techniques to figure out what was important within the diverse groups of people he was working with. He got hooked up with some people building software to solve a similar problem.
E16: Meetesh Karia, The Zebra — codestory.co
In January 2013, he was approached to create and own the technology and team around a product that allowed people to compare insurance providers – from scratch. Meetesh made the decision to onboard and started the journey to build the Zebra.

E15: Beerud Sheth, Gupshup — codestory.co
Twelve or so years ago, Beerud noticed a key insight, in that the mobile revolution was happening all around. Within this, the lowest common denominator was text messages, in that not everyone had a smart phone. This got him asking the question – how interesting can these experiences be?
Bonus: Greg Schier, Insomnia — codestory.co
While Greg was working for a company making a transactional email API, he realized that they didn’t have a good way to interact with said API. There needed to be an easy way to interact with the solution as a customer, as a developer, etc. His tool, which ended up taking off, was born out of trying to solve this problem.
E14: Bryon Jacob, data.world — codestory.co
Bryon and his co-founders have created a massive, open community for data. Users can sign up for free, bring their data catalogue, and analyze any data outside of that.
