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!! 🥳

You not only learn but have your ideas validated

I’ve been a long time listener and find practically every episode informative and applicable. To hear “community experts” experience the same issues I do helps validate what I go through. My favourite part of MergeConflict is how it doesn’t shy away from Technical content and is more than happy to dig deep unlike some other podcasts.

Thank you for all your hard work!
