Lithium Mining, Sophia Matveeva, and Document Orientated Databases

This week we look at one of the major unexpected consequences of a move towards a net zero carbon future, mining for lithium. Battery technology, for the time being, involves rare and potentially hazardous materials which pose tricky questions when obtaining. We have a fascinating chat with Sophia Matveeva of Tech for Non-Techies! Sophia talks us through her journey from outside of the world of tech to guiding non-techies in. We discuss the blockers between business and tech and how we can all aim for a better way of communicating. As soon as you get the chance, be sure to check out the Tech for Non-Techies podcast! Finally, we take a look at document orientated databases. We discuss what they are, what they're used for, how they differ from SQL and other contemporaries and how we use them at Atlas.   ...

Lucid Cars, Edge Computing and Armin Fahnle

On this week's episode we take a look at Lucid cars. We discuss their viability, where they came from and take a wider look at the world of electrical vehicles. We also get into edge computing. We discuss some use cases, where edge computing stands with 5G networking on the way in, why it exists and what it's used for. We also chat with our colleague Armin Fahnle about his time with ATS and what led him there. Unfortunately due to a bit of a stretched internet connection the audio quality for our interview with Armin took a bit of a dip so it's been edited down. We look forward to round 2 with Armin at a future date! If you loved the podcast, or have any thoughts, be sure to leave us a review!
