Entertaining and Educational

Do the hosts know what they're talking about? Sometimes I am confident they do. Sometimes I feel like we're learning at the same time. I submitted this as a 4 star review and they upgraded it to 5 stars. No charge. Thank you for the time you put into producing this show. I appreciate the various segments and diving deep in topics to help developers like me make sense of the tools and processes out in the wild. Also, really appreciate the links and full show notes on each episode.

A Two Hour Dev Water Cooler Session

As a solo developer one thing I miss is talking shop with fellow developers. These guys solve that for me. The topics are diverse. The opinions sometimes diverge. The perspectives are always fresh. I learn so much from each podcast session. When I commute somewhere, it feels like time well spent tuning in to Coding Blocks.
