Episode 33 – Dave Rael, host of Developer on Fire

Dave RaelJames and I are joined by Dave Rael – the host of Developer On Fire. He is, first and foremost, a father of 3 wonderful children. That is the role in which he takes the most joy and gets the most benefit. He is also a husband, podcaster, software developer and architect, and a philosopher.


When he’s not playing with kids, recording and listening to his own voice, or building distributed systems, he likes to play basketball and racquetball, and lift weights.

We talk with Dave about his podcast, his development work and what’s in the future for him.
