Just never stop John, just never. You are the inspiration for many developers.
Must if you are into Swift!
It is always fun to listen so someone who is enthusiastic about the topic at hand! John is great to listen to. He loves swift and anything programming related.
I feel the show is a must for someone who is learning Swift. There are some really interesting guests from all corners of Swift. Topics are general, and cover a very wide range from architecture to server, functional programming, security, debugging, design, etc. I actually ended up listening to the show from the very beginning to make sure I did not miss anything. In 3-4 months I caught up. Perfect for my 45 min commute.
The show notes alone are a great resource for more reading and researching. I have received many software, book, blog, and service recommendations through this show. I made it my mission to go back to the first podcast’s link and click and look up every single note and reference and make bookmarks and notes for future reading.
Fantastic job! I wish John would have episodes more frequently!
The best one!
Joe is such a nice speaker and he raises really nice topics in his podcasts. Also awesome guests make it all even better!
