    On this podcast, we talk with Andrea Magnorsky, who is a tech lead at Goodlord on their engineering squads; she has a background in Scala, C#, and organised conferences. Today we’ll be talking about paradigm shifts. Why listen to this podcast: * A programming paradigm has a loose definition. It’s just about finding a way of doing things. * There are a number of different ways to think about problems - and different paradigms do this in different ways. * To shift paradigms, you have to un-learn some of your instincts. * When adopting a new paradigm if people don’t want to learn anything, then they won’t. * Multiple paradigms help you apply different ways of thinking about solutions to problems because solutions vary across languages. * Quick ways to start gaining knowledge and adoption for new languages are to use a new language as a test harness for your existing code.
