Great for the non-dev part of developing
Came across this on a recommendation from a friend who was a guest on the show. Would higly recommend for anyone considering getting into development and wanting to hear about aspects that aren't necessarily pounding on a keyboard.
Great podcast about the non-development side of development!
This is one of my favorite podcasts because it tackles subjects pertaining to development that aren't necessarily code-related. I loved the episode on burnout and on having effective 1 on 1s, and I've been recommending this podcast to my colleagues and developer friends. Definitely check this podcast out.
Revved up for Dev(up)
I spent time learning basic html/python so I could design front end projects as a side gig. I spent a lot of time on so many questions and wished I had this insight and support form a show like this. I highly recommend you make this part of your podcast package.
