Hello World PodcastNot just another technical podcast. Shawn Wildermuth brings you his "Hello World" podcast where we learn about how your favorite developers tell their story of how they got started writing software!

This episode is a bit different than my ordinary episode. Carl Franklin and I both have a passion for music and development and that is what this episode is all about.

Carl and I love to play music together at conferences, though he's clearly more polished than I am with those awesome guitar licks. If you are a musician or are just interested in how Carl got started, this is the episode for you!
