Remember: you can also always follow the show on Twitter @dotnetcoreshow, and the shows host on Twitter @podcasterJay or visit our Contact page. Welcome to season 4 of the award-winning .NET Core Podcast! Check that link for proof.

The .NET Core Podcast is podcast where we reach into the core of the .NET technology stack and, with the help of the .NET community, present you with the information that you need in order to grok the many moving parts of one of the biggest cross-platform, multi-application frameworks on the planet.

I am your host, Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor. In this episode I talked with Felienne Hermans about her book The Programmer's Brain. This was a slight departure from the normal content of the show, as I feel that the knowledge found in Felienne's book is rather important to all developers who want to learn new things - which, let's face it, is what we do on a daily basis.

Along the way, we talked about how learning works, how our brains work with prior knowledge and context to solve new problems, and how IDEs should really allow us developers to make annotations without affecting the code base itself. We also discussed both Heady (a programming language for students in the 11-16 year old range), and Felienne's Code Reading Club.
