    Web News - Are Apps Too Easy to Use?

    Web News - Are Apps Too Easy to Use?

    In this episode of the Web News, Matt and Mike discuss a potential UX problem across the board. As UX increasingly makes things easier in tech, it makes very difficult tasks easy - and furthermore makes easy tasks even easier (or even completely automated). The result of this is a generation of people that grew up with tech, that seem to be "tech savvy" but in reality they're moreso just "familiar with tech" having no idea what's actually going on in the background - even at a high level. Is this a problem?

    Web News - WhatsApp, Facebook, and Signal

    In this episode of the Web News, Matt and Mike discuss something that's been cropping up on social media, and in the tech news recently - the WhatsApp policy changes. Due to the nature of the changes and of course the affiliation with Facebook, many of you are probably being told to switch to other apps, such as Signal. While Matt doesn't care about the situation, having used WhatsApp and Facebook for a number of years - Mike has done a small amount of research and has a different (yet very similar) perspective on the situation.

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 */
