I love podcasts. They provide an endless supply of entertainment, news, information and pop culture references related to whatever subject strikes my fancy. From news in Italian, to the history of the Middle East, there’s a podcast for it.
As you might expect there is a plethora of podcasts about coding. Covering technical information, the stories of people’s journeys to software engineering, and conversations with people who have built some of the significant digital products that are ubiquitous in our daily lives.
Below is a list of some great podcasts to get your coding going:
Learn To Code With Me
Created by Laurence Bradford, Learn To Code With Me is a great resources for coding beginners. As a self-taught techie herself, Lauren has an arsenal or personal experience. She interviews experts on topics from coding bootcamps to projects and portfolios. A great listen for those on the challenging but fun road to learning to code.
This podcast, which went live in 2017 is by Quincy Larson and the team at freeCodeCamp. With an episode every week, it is one of my favourites for offering real-world insights and suggestions on how to become a coder.
Get inspired by personal accounts of how people changed their lives through coding.
First-person accounts offers varied points of views around coding, along with insights into the successes and challenges you might face in your coding journey. The CodeNewbie podcast is as relatable and varied as its online community. Find them on Twitter, slack and Patreon.
The podcast from the programming professionals. Coding Blocks takes up the challenge of covering knowledge across the vast subject of programming. Topics include best programming practices, design patterns, coding for performance, object oriented coding, database design and implementation, tips, tricks, and more.
Learn more about programming languages, and speak as intelligently as a computer scientists or software engineers. The podcast also covers tech topics, news and tools to help you become a better programmer. Find out more on the website and on Patreon.
We will be adding to this list and reviewing episodes over the next few months. But until then, let us know what you think in the comments. While you’re there, why not share some of your favourite tech podcasts?
