    Why Vue Is Better Than React

    In this episode Matt and Mike discuss Vue and React, two major web development tools that promise to improve UI development in their own unique ways. However, as a bit of a twist, the duo won't just be discussing these two JavaScript frameworks/libraries, instead Mike has taken the stance that Vue is better than React and will be presenting his case throughout the episode. Let the React versus Vue wars begin!

    The Power of Laser Focus

    The Power of Laser Focus

    In this episode Matt and Mike discuss how laser focus can help drive you and your projects to the finish line quickly, but with the huge caveat that it's hard to figure out exactly what to laser focus on. Unless you're one of the lucky ones, that knew exactly what they were going to do for a career from high school onward, then the road to your passions and eventually the thing that you're going to laser focus on is a difficult one. While difficult, it is more than worth it as you'll be focusing on exactly what you want to be doing and not something that drives you crazy, or makes you bored on the daily.

    When to Ask for Help

    When to Ask for Help

    In this episode Matt and Mike discuss asking for help. Even though it sounds simple, asking for help can be an anxiety-inducing activity because you don't want to bother your fellow co-workers, or be called out for not doing enough research if you ask on an online forum. There can also be hesitation to ask because you want to solve your problem yourself, but sometimes you're just way too stuck to go it alone.

These Guys are Fun

Let’s be honest development isn’t the most entertaining of topics. BUT, Matt & Mike do a great job of making a bland topic interesting and funny. They bring real world experience having been in the industry for years but do it in a way that’s accessible if you’re just starting out. Thank you guys!

Pain points are a pain

They touch on some interesting topics, and I’ve learned from this show. But I strongly dislike that you have to sit through 10 to 20 minutes of them essentially complaining during the “weekly pain points” to start every episode. Irrelevant negativity that I’ve started skipping over each episode I listen to.

The beginning of something great

New listener here and newbie coder going the self taught path. It’s been 1 month since I started. I can’t say enough how much I appreciate this Podcast and the goal it’s striving to achieve as a Technical/Business resource for developers. This show has so much value. and I’m excited to see how it will develop in the future.

I really appreciate the discussions in the show , they aren’t so intimidating that someone new to the industry isn’t able to follow what’s being talked about. While some mentions of specific technologies and concepts go over my head (at least for now) . I’ve tried listening to several other podcasts on computer science/programming. Those may as well been in some foreign language for me. XD. So thanks a lot for the great content Matt & Mike .

/* Only listened to first 2.5 episodes so far, cuz I’m obsessed with chronological order sometimes. But seriously keep up the great work */
