Launching Making Tech Better — a podcast by Made Tech

At Made Tech, our core mission is empowering public sector organisations to improve how they work through technology. It’s something we care about deeply. By helping companies modernise their working processes, upskill their people, and put their focus on the users, we’ve been able to see first-hand how our clients can improve not only their software delivery, but also the lives of millions of people.

Along the way, we’ve had some great conversations on some of the most important challenges facing the public sector as it undergoes digital transformation — and it got us thinking…What does making tech better truly mean for us?

For us, it means helping companies improve their processes and culture and helping organisations to make better decisions using their data. It also means empowering teams to collaborate compassionately on creating high quality software that helps the people that really matter — the users.

This is why we’re really excited to announce the launch of our very first podcast dedicated to this topic. Launching on 13th April, Making Tech Better will bring you some of the best minds in tech and public sector organisations for a series of conversations all about improving software delivery.

Led by our Lead Engineer Clare Sudbery alongside other members of the Made Tech team, Making Tech Better will explore topics including team collaboration, digital modernisation and transformation, and diversity to empower digital leaders to improve software delivery in the public sector. To start things with a band, we’re launching our first four episodes simultaneously — which you’ll be able to listen to from 13th April.

Here’s what to expect…

  • Do your teams embrace learning? That’s the question Clare aims to tackle in episode 1 when she chats to Jessica Kerr about the concept of symmathesy, and building better collaborations.
  • In episode 2, Clare explores what transformation means to software engineer Paula Paul, including its common pitfalls and a few basic principles to follow.
  • What’s the difference between coding for fun and coding for your job? Clare asks Google engineer, author, and renowned Stack Overflow contributor Jon Skeet this very question in episode 3.
  • Episode 4 sees Clare chat to Kit Collingwood, Assistant Director of Digital and Customer Services in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, about using tech to serve every citizen.

With so much exciting content to delve into, we’ll be launching a new episode every fortnight to keep the conversation flowing. Some of our upcoming guests include former Ministry of Justice CTO and Head of Digital Dave Rogers, and Anne-Marie Imafidon, founder of Stemettes, a social enterprise dedicated to inspiring the next generation of young women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths roles.

What do you want to hear us talk about next?

We’re passionate about having great conversations that inspire others to improve their software delivery. We want you to come away from our podcasts with a smile on your face, and a bunch of useful new ideas in your back pocket — not just for software delivery, but for your whole life.
