We have just published episode 4 of our livestream, and podcast, Unpacking Software. You can watch it now on YouTube, LinkedIn and X.

On the third Thursday of each month we livestream to Twitch, YouTube, LinkedIn, and X Unpacking Software. Each month we chat about the latest news & opinion on the world of software focusing on packaging, software deployment & lifecycle management. We also publish a podcast of our stream, for you to save and enjoy using your favorite podcast manager.
