We're Emma Bostian, Sidney Buckner, Kelly Vaughn, and Ali Spittel - four seasoned software developers working in different sectors. Since there's a major lack of technical podcasts out there, we've decided to start one. Just kidding -- there's already a ton! But, we wanted to add our voices to the space and share our experiences and advice. We'll have great discussions around how to start coding, the hot technologies right now, how to get your first developer job, and more!

All About Agile
The definition of Agile is the ability to create and respond to change. Ultimately dealing with and succeeding in an uncertain or turbulent environment. I think we can all say with confidence that in the world of software development, being agile and agreeable to change helps you learn faster, connect with others better, and makes coding more fun.
Today we are talking about the agile framework of software developers, its significance in the workplace and the familiar steps an agile process takes to go from a project’s concept, to the physical minimum viable product.

I just finished the first React episode, and loved the conversational style and a focus on the confusing parts in order to help your listeners instead of a cooks-tour of obscure features we’ll never need. Useful and enjoyable!
Thank you, I really enjoy listening to the episodes, and they are a fresh source of very interesting perspectives, intuitions, and inspiration for me.
I’m new to coding and came across the Ladybug Podcast. I enjoy listening to these women chat about various tech topics. I find them to be easy to listen to while also giving lots of valuable advice and resources. I will definitely be a continued listener!!
