Customer Reviews

Jacob(o) ,

My favorite GIS podcast

I absolutely love this podcast. As a GIS person, l’m trying to learn as much about software engineering as I can, especially application development. Hussein delivers, both as an educator and entertaining podcast host. He covers super relevant topics that are useful in the industry. Keep up the great work!

Kim Sundeen-GIS Developer ,

Staying on the leading edge in the cross section of GIS and software engineer in

I listen to this podcast on my way into work or while exercising. It gives me food for thought and a lead in discussion at work for knowing what topics to continue researching or learn about. I especially love how Hussein breaks down the complicated topics and to piecemeal bits for every day discussion. Thank you for all your hard work Hussein!
