Welcome to the debut episode of Tech Team Weekly! As is always the case with software development, our first attempt at a 30-minute podcast turns out to be just over an hour long. We look at the ongoing saga of working during the pandemic and "The Great Resignation"; plus recent innovations at GitHub, including Copilot and Codespaces.

We introduce a few of our regular segments, including our workplace updates in The Standup, views from listeners in the Social Engineering section, and our "building in public" section entitled Podcast Driven Development.

Plus, learn more about Gwen's ongoing bathroom quest, the mystery of our missing debut tweet, and everyone takes the time to gush about Neil's current employer.
