Joel Spolsky or Jeff Atwood would be amazing. Sara Soueidan and Sarah Drasner are a couple of my favorite devs, I'd be jazzed about them as well.

Personally, would also love to see more folks from the hardware side talk about both their past (tech origin stories) and future (why should everyone tap into their inner "maker" mentality) - ex: Limor Fried, Becky Stern, Sophi Kravitz (who I know and absolutely admire) have all inspired me with their creative projects.

Jason Fried is not a developer ;-;

Yeah DHH would be more relevant, but if Jason jumped in in addition, that would work for me. They're definitely partners in all of David's work.

Why I asked them is they are more than just software devs .

They run a great business in a simple , but elegant way.

Their book Getting Real is much like checklist for startups .

Their books and blogs is entirely based app n their and their team's experience.

We can a lot more from such multi talented people .

How about Jason Miller, a.k.a. Mr. Preact now Googler, jasonformat.com? It would be fitting as well since I believe the dev.to team mentioned there is some "Preact"ness to dev.to now?

Aras Pranckevičius because I love his view on this tiny thread. I would have questions on developing an industry in a country that pretty much does not have it.

Fran (Frances) Allen. I would love to hear her perspective on where things are in computing today, and also where she believes they are going in the future. Would also be neat to hear about what it was like to receive the Turing award (including what it was like to be first woman to receive the award after it had been in existence for 40-ish yrs by the time she won).
