Prashant Deva is not some hipster "brogrammer
". No, he's about as hard-core geek, John Carmack
-level coder. He's the fellow that brought us ANTLR Studio
, to give you some bearing on his skills. While preparing for this podcast I 1) realized he never sleeps 2) he's very enthusiastic about Chronon
In this interview Prashant takes us through Chronon which he describes as a 'DVR for debuggers'. That's right, you can actually step through a program that has already run! An invaluable tool for tracking down those nasty production bugs. The product is amazing, it's not a simple gimmick and I believe it will become the de-facto standard for JVM-based production servers.
