Futurice TechWeeklies - Podcast

At Futurice, we have a culture of sharing knowledge - both internally and externally. Every Friday, the developers of the company gather together to give talks and learn from each other. It’s like an internal global meet-up every week at the office.
To make sure that knowledge doesn’t just stay inside our office walls, we publish most of the talks on Youtube and as a podcast.
