If You Know the Spell You Can Have Whatever You Want with John Arundel
John Arundel is software consultant, mentor, and author of the book “For the Love of Go”. We talk about his early fascination with computers, the role his mother played in planting these seeds, and the steps he took in his younger years to follow his passion. We then explore John’s indirect job path, having to settle for work as a technical writer out of college and stumbling into IT and system administration. But the major lesson that comes out of this is that these 'detours' actually served John's later work, developing parts of his expertise that would aid him in his writing and mentoring.Connect with John:LinkedInTwitterBook: For the Love of GoWant more from Ardan Labs?You can learn Go, Kubernetes, Docker & more through our video training, live events, or through our blog!

Fighting Viruses and Caring for Others with Andy Walker
Welcome to the Ardan Labs podcast, where we have intimate conversations with different people within, but not limited to, the Go community! Today’s guest is Andy Walker, security nerd, Google Developer Expert, and long time Gopher! In this episode, we talk to Andy about his childhood and how he got into programming, his journey in cybersecurity, and some of the soft skills that are so valuable to have in this industry. We kick things off by hearing Andy talk about his early love of computers for their own sake, early hacks, and how he fell into more serious programming at college after switching from Biology to a CS major. We talk about the value of meetups for making friends and how these events can be more welcoming! We then wrap up hearing Andy talk about where he would like to see himself in the future.
