S15:E2 - How to code without typing (Matt Wiethoff, Tommy MacWilliam)

In this episode, we talk about how to code without typing, with Serenade co-founders, Matt Wiethoff and Tommy MacWilliam. They talk about how Matt’s repetitive wrist injury started to derail his coding career, how they needed to invent the accessibility tool, which one of them literally needed to help build the tool itself, and what stack they used to build it.
