Customer Reviews

Luca Gobbi ,

Best combination between casual and technical

One of my favourite podcast about technology! Frank and James are amazing and I love the way they explain how very technical topics can be applied to real world.
They bring their experience as devs as a light and easy to understand discussion.
A must listen if you into dev!

y_f_i ,

Great podcast!

Two people talking stuff (most of the time). Sometimes the topic is less technical, sometimes is more. I like the combination!!
