With 10 seasons worth of content, I decided to gather my 10 favorite CodeNewbie podcast episodes that have helped me along in my journey. It was not easy to narrow it down but these episodes I think cover the most important aspects of what you need to know when you're transitioning into code. For 2019, I decided to really focus on transitioning from my administrative role as an assistant to a more creative role in technology. If you read my previous post on developing a self-taught cirriculum you will know that I love to use podcasts as my 'college lecture courses.'
Topics include accessibility, web animation, UI & design, burnout, freelancing and much more. If you are a Spotify user I also have a playlist there as well!
S9:E3 - How do you develop yourself and your code while fighting off trolls (Ali Spittel)
S9:E8 - Why you should read the new edition of the Pragmatic Programmer (Dave Thomas, Andy Hunt)
S9:E6 - What is Java good for and why is it still one of the most popular coding languages (Peggy Fisher)
I really enjoyed this one because it was about communication and learning to clarify with your colleagues. At my day job I am a manager and I just really appreciated this view from Lara Hogan. It was validating to hear some of the same difficulties as well as insightful on how to level up as an employee and to be there for your team!
