Customer Reviews

One of the best web design podcasts out there.

Jen is a fantastic interviewer, you can tell she has really done her homework before the show. She asks questions that lead her guests into what they enjoy talking about. The end result is a conversation that is very natural and digs really deep into the show's topic.

Returning 5by5 To Its Roots

The range, depth, and quality of the whole 5by5 arsenal is impressive. My only one yearning as 5by5 exploded in popularity and offerings is that it no longer really had a podcast that focussed on the roots of what got it started - Web Development. Enter "The Web Ahead".

When you can list guests like Ethan Marcotte and Jeremy Keith in your first 3 shows you know the show's content is high quality. Its host, Jen Simmons, is respected, knowledgeable and just downright good company to sit (drive,walk, whatever) and listen to the stuff that web developers love.

My new favorite informative podcast

I haven't heard Jen's other podcasts, but this one is off to a terrific start! I found the first episode so interesting that I ordered the guest's html5 book right away.

Jen seems to be a genius at asking great questions and illustrating them with real world down to earth examples. She really helped me understand what the problems are, and how these new tools can address them. I've been working at a pretty basic level building websites and web apps. I'm optimistic that Jen and her guests can help me get to the next level.

It also doesn't hurt that Jen sounds like a great person. I enjoyed her "company" via the podcast!
