56: Coffeeless Code Headaches



A fun episode where Andrew tries to code and Brett tries to stop him. Highlights include:

  1. Andrew's new Surface Book's key travel (Brett criticizes manual keyboards)
  2. Andrew learns a surprising amount of information about programming (Brett overestimates Andrew's knowledge)
  3. Brett switches topics to him giving up coffee (Andrew designs a science experiment using Brett's health)
  4. We narrowly escape a pranks arms-race to the bottom
  5. Andrew figures out that you can automate programming with a powerful enough processor (Brett says he is cheating)

But yes, knowing the context of a question is critical to being successful.
