32:53 – “The 99 Bottles book seems to document all the trade-offs we’ve been implicitly making. Could this possibly be a first step in automating those decisions? i.e.: Might we take those now-explicit rules and partially automate the process of programming?” – Craig Buchek

45:00 – Sandi’s Unique Approach to Teaching
47:53 – Speaking at Conferences
Coraline: Inspiration to return to work on her book about empathy. Also, exploring whether that visual interpretation of code is the shape of code in the abstract or the shape of the code that’s written on-screen.
Sandi: Controversy around the notion that duplication is better than the wrong abstraction.
Katrina: We are humans and we have ideas and sharing those ideas makes us visible to other humans. It is also incredibly important and impactful to speak.
Jessica: Development of relationships and partnerships with someone who will push you.
Sam: Helping people realize things on their own is greater than telling them the answer. Also, practicing better self-control in coding and mentoring.
