If you haven't yet heard, there is a new podcast you should be listening to, the Alt.NET Podcast. Check it out. The first episode is a discussion with David Laribee, Jeremy D. Miller, and Chad Myers about continuously improving yourself, your code, and your team. I'm just finishing up with it while typing this blog post and I agree with much of what is said. There is quite a bit of brainpower here, so its worth the 45 minute listen. Do yourself a favor and don't just listen to what they are saying and take it as gospel. Think about how their thoughts affect you, and decide if you can take their ideas and make positive changes in your own world. Everyone is different and since we are not these guys (already alpha-guys) critical thinking is imperative here. Knowing you should be continuously improving yourself and your career is a no-brainer! There isn't a magic bullet to do so, but these ideas are certainly a great start.
This podcast really gets you thinking, so I'm anxious to listen to the next. Nice job guys.
