RobbieW2010 ,

👏 Great podcast focusing on app development, mostly but not exclusively C# and Xamarin

Easily the podcast I check first for new episodes.

Frank is an Indy developer with amazing apps like iCircuit 3D and James is Mr Xamarin (a PM for Microsoft) with fingers in a lot of pies.

They both record regularly and their cadence is spot on (pun intended James 😏).

I do enjoy watching Frank on Twitch when I'm in sync with time zones and availability, this is where I'm in awe at his capabilities.

They have been running the podcast for almost five years, their relationship is very fun and admiring of each other's achievements.

If they lived in the U.K. I'd definitely invite them for coffee and/or beers, cheers! 🍻

Always enjoyable

For a good podcast you need great sound quality, interesting content, people who speak clearly and in the case where there are multiple people, they're not talking over themselves and have some chemistry that makes them fun to listen to. Frank & James offer all those things with merge conflict. Whilst both are mobile developers, they do not stick to just mobile, the podcast can be technical some times but you feel like you're really just sat there listening to two friends chatting at a coffee shop, yet asking the sort of questions of each other that you would if you interrupted them.

Expand your chops with the industry leaders

If you have ever tried xamarin development, you’ve probably come across James and Frank independently. Both contribute massively to the platform through great apps, open source & sharing their knowledge on platforms such as this!

Their knowledge of xamarin and the wider industry is great, if you are a dev (aspiring or full time) it’s well worth sticking this podcast on for the commute. I’ve already picked up some useful tips (nullable reference types & investing in learning azure pipelines) and hope to learn more as I binge listen to the guys on the cycle to/from work! 😊 🚴‍♂️

Great work guys!! 🥳
