<p>How do you build something people actually want and will use time and time again? Sharing lessons we've learned in the six-plus years building Intercom, in this series you'll learn how to evaluate your current product, how to decide which features to build in a haystack of those you shouldn't, best practices for getting those features used, and much more.</p>
For the latest in computer security news, hacking, and research! We sit around, drink beer, and talk security. Our show will feature technical segments that show you how to use the latest tools and techniques. Special guests appear on the show to enlighten us and change your perspective on information security. Note: This is only Paul's Security Weekly, a 2-hour show recorded once per week.

R is a free and open-source statistical computing environment. It has quickly become the leading choice of software used to develop cutting-edge statistical algorithms, innovative visualizations, and data processing, among other key features. R has seen tremendous growth in popularity and functionality over the last decade, largely due to the vibrant and devoted R community of users. Whether you have experience with commercial statistical software such as SAS or SPSS and want to learn R, or getting into statistical computing for the first time, the R-Podcast will provide you with valuable information and advice that will help you to tap into the power of R. Our intent is to start with the basic concepts that can be a struggle for those new to R and statistical computing. We will give practical advice on how to take advantage of R’s capabilities to accomplish innovative and robust data analyses. Along the way we will highlight the additional tools and packages that greatly enhance the experience of using R, and highlight resources that can help people become experts with R. While this podcast is not meant to be a series of lectures on statistics, we will use freely and publicly available data sets to illustrate both basic statistical analyses as well as state-of-the-art algorithms to show how powerful and robust R can be for analyzing today’s explosion of data. In addition to the audio podcast, we will also produce screencasts for hands-on demonstrations for those topics that are best explained via video.

AgileCoffee brings together an engaged group of practitioners passionate about Agile methodologies and Lean practices. Our format mimics the Lean Coffee model of structured, agenda-free meetings where agilists (or curious bystanders) come together to exchange ideas. Expand your understanding of Agile / Lean methods. Bring your own topic related to the Lean family (XP, Scrum, Kanban & Agile) and apply discussions to software development, testing, project management, product ownership, coaching or just life-hacking.
