We're back with a brand new episode of DevNews!
S7:E5 - A German Court Rules Against Google Fonts, DeepMind’s AI Coding Engine, Raspberry Pi’s 64-bit OS, and Flutter for Windows
As a refresher, DevNews is the news show for developers by developers. Each season, our hosts cover the latest in the world of tech, and speak with diverse guests from a variety of backgrounds to dig deep into meaty topics such as security, the pros and cons of outsourcing your authentication, and the latest bugs and hacks.
- @saronyitbarek is the founder of Disco, founder of CodeNewbie host of the CodeNewbie Podcast, and co-host of the base.cs podcast.
- @joshpuetz is the Principal Software Engineer at Forem — the open source community software that powers DEV, CodeNewbie and a growing number of other online communities.
- Giulia Gentile is Fellow in Law at the LSE Law School. She joined LSE Law School in 2021, having previously worked as Lecturer and Postdoctoral Researcher at Maastricht University and as Visiting Lecturer at King’s College London.

During her doctoral studies, she was awarded research scholarships by the Centre of European Law at King’s College London and the Max Planck Institute of European Procedural Law (Luxembourg).
In this episode, we talk about some hardware and some software that might be of interest to you, and DeepMind’s claims that their AI coding engine is on par with your average human developer. Then we speak with Giulia Gentile, fellow in law at the London School of Economics and Political Science, about Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation and a ruling by a German court saying that it found "no legitimate interest for using Google Fonts on its websites," and the legal precedent that it sets.
