The Software Process and Measurement Cast 625 features our interview with Drew Angell. Drew and I talk about web development, software development excellence, and how to find great developers. Being good is more than just excellence in coding -- listening and problem-solving are also needed which has led Drew to experiment with using GitCommit bounties to get great developers to self-identify.

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 625 will feature our interview with Jacob Glenn.  Jacob and I talked about custom software development in a world that seems to be prone to accepting pre-packaged approaches for solving business problems.
