TREWLife Humanity ,

Great show!

I’m 30 years old and BRAND NEW to coding. I’m going to continue to learn. This has been a great place to start getting a real perspective on the world of coding. Thank you!

Tanner E 📍 ,

Juuuuusssttt Right!

I was looking for a GOOD coding podcast but a lot of them out there are too technical and don’t really allow you to listen and do something else. I like the Coffee and Coding podcast because it’s not too techy, the guests are great and the conversations are super interesting!

Arlie K ,

Hot and fresh!

Coffee & Coding is a newfound favorite! Rob and his guests make me feel completely at home here - bowled over by brilliant advice and genuine conversations.
