Fun and informative

As someone who has recently started studying JavaScript, I really appreciate listening to Lyle and his guests. The show always gives me energy and reminds me that although learning programming and tech in general can be very discouraging at times, overcoming challenges are part of the fun. Thank you, Lyle, for producing this show. You’re always so upbeat and a pleasure to listen to. Good luck at Netflix!
