Episode Summary: 

I shoot the shit with Joe Karlsson from SingleStore. He’s amazing and funny and we talk about why DevRel and DevOps go hand in hand. 

About: Joe Karlsson / Developer Advocate at SingleStore/ He/Him/They/Them

Joe Karlsson is a software engineer turned Developer Advocate at SingleStore. He comes from the frozen tundra of Minneapolis, Minnesota (and yes, it does get really cold here, and no, not everyone here has the accent from the movie, Fargo). Joe has been primarily a Node and JavaScript engineer. He has been writing, teaching, and talking about code his entire career. Sharing what he knows and continuing to learn about programming is truly the thing he loves doing the most.

Joe is the co-creator of open source software, including, a web app that tells you if a movie script passes the Bechdel Test or not. In his free time, he is usually drinking Gin and Tonics, eating at a new restaurant, or tinkering on a new art project or open source project.
