DevCT ,

Absolutely love these guys!

I’ve been studying different programming languages for about a year now and stumbled on coding blocks and decided to give it a listen. I was not disappointed. These guys are funny, charismatic and all around good people. I love hearing inputs, advice, and preferences from experienced developers and the more I learn the more I understand! Thanks JZ Outlaw and Allan!

Excellent for all types of software development

I script and configure stuff and love this podcast for the excellent insight into what my “customers” in the value stream need.

Thank you for the gold!

For what ales you

I came to relax my work brain with something technical and challenging (don't judge me - it's what calms me lol), and stayed for the dad jokes (judge away). Seriously I'm not a programmer by trade but I can hack something together when needed and I often do. I walk away every episode with a smile and having learned something. Thanks, guys.
