How a very average programmer became GitHub's CTO

The Stack Overflow Podcast

We chat with Jason Warner, former CTO of GitHub, who has taken his experience in software development and engineering management to the world of venture capital.

Jason is now a managing director at Redpoint Ventures and has led one investment so far, backing a company called Alchemy that is focused on infrastructure and dev tools for web3.

He describes himself as a "very average" programmer, but an excellent engineer, and explains how he parlayed his unique skill set into key roles at Heroku and GitHub.
