    What's Wrong With Web Development?

    What's Wrong With Web Development?

    In this episode Matt and Mike discuss all the issues with web development like rapidly changing frameworks, dealing with customer relations, inconsistency with pricing, and much more! This episode went a little off the rails with tangents so the Web News has been postponed to next week, hopefully tangents won't derail that too.

    Reach Is the Internet's Currency

    Reach Is the Internet's Currency

    In this episode Matt and Mike discuss the idea of the internet's currency in regards to social media and marketing yourself (or your business) online. Every internet entrepreneur has seen self-help business gurus, marketing experts, and more promise that their methods of posting on Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, TikTok, and Facebook will make you a successful businessperson. While a lot of this advice is real and can absolutely be helpful, the sheer amount of things that you have to do to climb the mountain of success can cloud or even completely cover up the real reason why you wanted to bring your business online in the first place - the content! Content, above all else, is king! 
    Then in the Web News the duo briefly discuss some new tech including the Xbox Series X | S, the PlayStation 5, and of course Apple's new bunch of Macs running on ARM.

    What We Need to Do Better

    What We Need to Do Better

    In this episode Matt and Mike discuss their own personal inefficiencies and what they're looking at improving upon. It's very important to know what you do well and what you do not - but it is arguably equally as important to know what you want to (and hopefully will) improve on, and what you will not be working on. It's impossible to learn everything, all the time, and being overwhelmed just makes your learning experience more difficult than it has to be. Then in the Web News, the duo discuss their excuses for using mobile tech, even if there is a lack of travel and even typical outings these days.

    Balancing Different Stacks & Technologies

    Balancing Different Stacks & Technologies

    In this episode Matt and Mike discuss their experiences with an ever-growing amount of stacks, plugins, and technologies in the web development world. As a web developer, you may find it important to know many stacks, or specific pieces of tech, but you can't learn them all. This episode covers the pros and cons of multiple stacks, as well as the stacks that Mike uses in any given day. Then in the Web News, the duo discuss a touchy topic that can be summarized with the phrase "Are we only as good as our last ticket?"

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!

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 */
