Podcasts are a great way to get intel on the go. Listen while you walk, drive, exercise, or unwind. According to recent research in The Infinite Dial 2016, podcast listening has experienced sharp gains, with an average of 5 podcasts consumed per week. 

 

 


If you can think of a topic, there’s probably a podcast about it. Web development is no different. Here are three podcasts to listen to if you’re a developer. 

Code Newbies

For new developers, it’s enlightening to listen to others talk about how they started coding and the struggles that they faced along the way. Saron always interviews interesting people (including many women in tech) and has a segment where she asks about the worst advice the interviewee has ever received. With over one hundred episodes, there’s a lot of content to leave you feeling inspired. 

Javascript Jabber

This podcast has an incredible amount of content at over two hundred episodes and counting. Rather than a single interviewee, the episodes include panels of individuals, all with different but equally insightful perspectives. As a newer developer, you’ll get exposure to new concepts and resources, which is extremely valuable considering Javascript is all the rage these days.

PhillyDev Podcast 

This podcast is fairly new and was created by a NYCDA grad. It’s fun and informative and provides a closer look at the Philly tech scene: it highlights the movers and shakers, how they got into the field, and the technologies they use. Steven always includes his “sweet nug” segment where he asks the interviewee to share a piece of wisdom or a recommendation for his listeners.
