The Ruby Rogues is a popular podcast on programming in the Ruby world. They invited me back to discuss the Ruby edition of Refactoring. We talked about the definition of refactoring, why we find we don't use debuggers much, what might be done to modernize the book, the role of refactoring tools, whether comments can be used for good, the trade-off between refactoring and rewriting, modularity and microservices, and how the software industry has changed over the last twenty years.

Pramod Sadalge and Martin Fowler
Pramod Sadalge led the development of agile database techniques which we now use habitually at ThoughtWorks. SE Radio interviews us about how we use these techniques to evolve the design of a database iteratively together with applications that use it. We discuss how to incorporate databases into a Continuous Integration system, how to make database changes through repeatable scripted migrations, and how database refactoring works.
