I’m Philip Su, site director of the Facebook engineering office in London. I’ve worked as a professional software engineer for fifteen years, both as a coder and as a manager of many software teams.
My goal is for this podcast to earn its “polymathic” title by covering a broad range of topics relevant to software engineers, with a focus on design and careers, as well as a healthy helping of life stories as told by engineers I know.
“Podcart” is an homage to Bryan Cranston, the lead actor in Breaking Bad, who coined the term in jest during an interview on Adam Carolla’s podcast. I use it as a way to keep things in this podcast grounded and lighthearted.
