Great Podcast

This has fast become one of my favorite podcasts. Most programming podcasts are either news based or basically just lectures. Coding Blocks strikes a great balance that is genuinely fun to listen to while still being technical enough that I get information I can actually use.

I really enjoyed the AOP episode with Vlad and the accessories for programmers episode left my wallet a little lighter. 100% recommend.

Original, Informative, and Entertaining

Coding Blocks provides the perfect blend of information and humor. Where other podcasts are either too dull and boring, sounding like a college lecture, or are too light and fluffy, sounding like the tech version of Entertainment Tonight, Coding Blocks is that rare podcast that balances the education with the entertainment and delivers on all aspects.

These guys are smart and love what they do, and it shows. They have a way of taking complicated topics and breaking them down into easily understood bits. I feel like I learn something new with each episode. If you are a software developer looking to improve your craft, give this podcast a try. You won't regret it.

Smart and enjoyable

I am so happy to have found this podcast. It is well thought out and cleanly produced. The episodes give me instantly usable knowledge and motivation to explore new technologies and techniques. All of this has the effect of ramping up my professional skills in an entertaining manner.

This is not a show on autopilot. It is clear that every episode is the product of preparation. Tangents are not rambling. Even more amazingly, the show notes are the most comprehensive you will find for any podcast. Thanks guys!
