Like having three virtual mentors!

Great show! As someone just starting to learn programming, some of the content is a bit over my head, but I always get something useful out of each episode. And many of the episodes are very beginner friendly. Listening to the podcast is like having three great (virtual) programming mentors. Highly recommended!

Fantastic

Hey guys, I’m just getting into programming but use your show to expand on what I’m learning and figure out what to learn next. Thanks!

Excellent

Long time listener but first time leaving a review! Thanks for consistently doing this podcast, it's been very helpful.

@Joe you mentioned you're GCP certified, an unsolicited suggestion for a youtube video would be how to best utilize the free tier in GCP. It's pretty incredible what you can get for free and I feel I have only scratched the surface on the free offerings, so I would personally enjoy your opinion on the topic!
