Podcasts for Engineers and Programmers of All Levels

Lately I have been on a big podcast kick and I found a ton of great engineering related ones. I saw some recent articles like this so I decided to make my own list. These are in no particular order of importance.

1 . Software Engineering Daily

Alt Text

This is one of my favorite podcasts out there. There are so many episodes available that range from Flutter, to scaling engineering at Facebook, Slack Messaging Architecture and so on. These are real world examples of technologies in use at various companies. Its an excellent resource to learn about new tech and how companies handle innovation.

It can be found here: https://softwareengineeringdaily.com/

2. The RayWenderlich.com Podcast

Alt Text

This is also one of my go to's. I have learned so much from this site in turns of iOS and Swift development. The podcast has a broad range of topics from iOS, Android and Unity and beyond. They are quick listens that are great for a morning commute.

3. Go Time

Alt Text

An excellent Go focused podcast. "A diverse panel and special guests discuss cloud infrastructure, distributed systems, microservices, Kubernetes, Docker…oh and also Go!"

4. The Python Podcast.__ init __

Alt Text

Their words say it best: "The podcast about Python and the people who make it great". A python focused podcast that talks all things from Machine Learning to Web API's to, well anything. And thats Python for ya. Check it out https://www.pythonpodcast.com/

5. Engineering Culture by InfoQ

Engineering goes beyond just building things. Its about the how as much as the who. This is a great listen to learn and familairize yourself with the otherside of the software world. Excellent for learning about engineering management. If you are like me and are transitioning from a full time coder to coder/leader then this is a great listen.

6. The Bike Shed

Alt Text

One of my newly favorite podcasts. They range from Ruby to React to SQL and just life in the software world as a whole. I have this at 6, but numbers are made up and ranks dont matter.

ALAS, if you have any other suggestions post them! Im always looking for new listens and learning never stops.

Arguably the single most important piece of documentation for any open source project is the README. A good README not only informs people what the project does and who it is for but also how they use and contribute to it.
