About this Episode

On this episode of the Bike Shed Chris is joined by Derek Prior, former
thoughtbotter and previous host of this very podcast. Derek has recently moved
on from thoughtbot to try out a new role as an engineering manager at GitHub.

During their conversation they talk about Derek's experience shipping the
"Suggested Changes" feature on github.com, and the MVP process Derek brought to
the planning and development of the feature. They also touch on the architecture
of GitHub and where services and monoliths fit in the world of larger systems
like GitHub. Lastly they discuss Chris & Derek's respective transitions into
more roles with a bit less code and a bit more management. As usual, this one
has a little bit of everything!
