Inspiring and insightful

Great to hear a British perspective when so much of the tech space is filled by the US. Guests are informed and informative so has been really insightful for someone like me who is looking to step deeper into dev.

Looking to start in tech? Get listening now!

I discovered Cameron on TikTok a few months ago, and what got me interested in listening to him was his straightforward and helpful approach for people who wanted to either start or move into the world of tech.

From there I discovered his podcasts and I have to say that I have found them invaluable. The guests are varied, from different walks of life and have valuable knowledge to share for the listeners. This is helped by Camerons easy approach in interviewing his guests which gives them the ease to open up and give advice to the listener.

Having listened to nearly a dozen of the shows so far, I have come away with something invaluable from each episode, giving me the confidence that I can and will move into the world of tech in the coming months.
