Unfortunately, Jason can’t be with us today since a storm ripped through his hometown, a tree came crashing down and ripped the electrical cords off his house, so now he has no power! However, Chris and Andrew are in the house and we are super excited to have three guests with us. Today, we have joining us from Polywork, Joe Ferrairo, Chris Polk, and Dylan Ginsburg. Joe is Engineering Lead, Chris is VP of Engineering, and Dylan is Lead iOS Engineer. They are here to talk more about Polywork and all the cool stuff they are doing to make it happen on the iOS side. We find out things that make a good Rails Developer and what type of person would be best to join the Polywork team. There is also an interesting story behind celebrity emoji keyboards and how Kanye tried to sue one of our guests! Also, Polywork is hiring!
Jason is taking a road trip to visit Chris, and Andrew is still moving, so we hope to have him back with us soon. Today, we have a great guest joining us, CJ Avilla, Developer Advocate at Stripe. He also has a great YouTube channel if you need help, for beginners, juniors, or intermediate Web Developers to get you up to speed. This episode if packed full of information about Stripe and what it does beyond card payments. There are tons of exciting new things happening at Stripe in the next couple of months and CJ tells us about some of them. CJ helps Chris out with his payment stuff for iOS and he shares some advice for Jason on how to do tax rates. Also, we find out there’s a Stripe Sessions conference coming up in June, and CJ explains more about that.
