A dev book club - brilliant
I learned about this podcast when Safia mentioned it on the Women In Tech Show. What a great idea and helpful addition to my podcast roster. I'm listening to the episodes about Rob Conery's Imposter's Handbook now, and it's been close to 2 years since I read that book myself. This podcast is serving as a refresher, while also providing different perspectives and offering new rabbit holes to fall into. I'm loving this, thank you all!
Perfect Companion to other Developer Podcasts
I was confident that I had subscribed to every developer podcast I needed. It seems like many angles from tech, to community, to interviewing, ETC was covered. And then I found BookBytes and realized the hole that was missing in my lineup. I read tech/business books all the time, so this podcast was right up my ally and now it's part of my regular rotation. Looking forward to being part of the BookBytes club for a long time!
Sounds like a great way to connect to the authors of some great books!
