Dev, Designer, Male Model, Prolific fCC Contributor [Podcast #128]

Programming LanguageDev, Designer, Male Model, Prolific fCC Contributor


On this week’s episode of the podcast, I interview Colby Fayock. He’s a Software Engineer and prolific teacher who has created 68 tutorials for freeCodeCamp, and more than 100 videos on his YouTube – all freely available.

We talk about:

  • Colby’s early days doing design work for local bands

  • How Colby went to art school, then pivoted that into a software development

  • His early career at ThinkGeek where he not only did web dev but also worked as a male model for their products.

  • Colby’s day-to-day work as a developer experience engineer, building demo applications and SDKs

  • How Colby uses AI tools in his day-to-day work, and what he thinks its current limits are.

Can you guess what song I’m playing on my bass during the intro? It’s from a 1995 punk song.
