Good for developers

I’d reccomend this podcast for new developers. Ben and Collin are knowledgeable and down to earth, and is up there with the top tech podcasts I listen even though they just started. If your looking to get into software development or are currently an entry level developer this podcast is essential listening.

Legendary

While I never got the opportunity to take classes from Ben or Collin, their reputation preceded them at Fullstack Academy. Their resources are still used to teach current students like myself and I'm glad to see that they are still helping bootcamp grads. Tape your ear lenses to their frames and give a listen 👂
