Shammed into this review

Ok I am sorry! I thought it was obvious that these guys are the best podcast on the internet without me having to write this review. When they announced on the latest episode that they didn’t get any new reviews, I felt crushed. The best podcast out there and no new reviews. So here it is. A new review stating the obvious! These guys are the best!!

Lots of great insights and fun

Highly educational: Learn about best coding practices and patterns, CI/CD pipelines, DevOps, SRE, source control and numerous other topics relevant to software developers.
And, loads of fun. And it has to be “sock sock shoe shoe”! What else can it be :-)

Fun and Informative Show

These guys have some great chemistry which makes the show great to listen to. They go over current trends and topics in the software engineering world! Give them a listen!

PS I am currently listening to episode where the Dad joke was: What language do Spanish programmers write in? I think another acceptable answer would be Lisp (the “th” instead of “s”). Anyways, have a good day!
