    The 4 Day Work Week feat. Derek Duncan

    The 4 Day Work Week feat. Derek Duncan

    In this episode Matt and Mike sit down with Derek Duncan to discuss his company's recent move to a 4 day work week. After the interview, the duo sit down to discuss the matter further, putting their own ideas and opinions together with Derek's first-hand insight. The 4 day work week has been a topic of much discussion lately, giving workers 3 days off to get a proper rest after a hard week's work. Some argue that it is not possible to get 5 days of productivity while others maintain that it is possible, as the extra day off makes the workers more productive all week.

    Googling Tips for Developers

    Googling Tips for Developers

    In this episode Matt and Mike discuss Googling for developers and other tech professionals. If you've ever worked in IT you may have heard the phrase "we are just professional Googlers." Googling all the time can be spun in a negative way as it can be seen as easy, or something that people only do when they don't know what they're doing. This episode tackles this negative stigma, breaking down why tech professionals need to be such good Googlers, and why Googling all the time does not mean you don't know how to do your job, and why having good Googling skills is so valuable.

    How Modern JavaScript Is Ruining the Web w/ Chris Ferdinandi

    How Modern JavaScript Is Ruining the Web w/ Chris Ferdinandi

    In this episode Matt and Mike sit down with Chris Ferdinandi to discuss the current state of JavaScript and more specifically why Chris thinks that it's ruining the web as we know it. JavaScript has exploded in popularity over the past few years and with that a rush of new developer talent has adopted the likes of JavaScript frameworks (ie React, Vue) to spin up projects quickly and easily, even if they're not that big (ie a landing page). In addition to this conversation, the trio discuss the importance of documentation, accessibility, and more!

Humbled ,

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 */
