Well-Rounded and Informative

There is a lot surrounding the world of software development and these two are on a mission to cover it all. Business, hiring, code quality… the list goes on. Great stuff.

Poor audio quality

The poor audio quality of the lost recent talk about junior developers is really annoying... it made the episode unlistenable.

Clear delivery of concepts

Everything in computing can be talked about in layers of abstraction. The problem is knowing what layer of detail to jump into when talking about a subject. Diving too far into the technical detail can create blinders for developers that are new to a concept.

Josh and Venkat seem to really understand that and do a wonderful job of structuring the interview to exposing you to an idea/concept/method/tech in a clear way by asking the right questions (see:“clarifying questions”). You can later figure out how to incorporate things into your unique projects.

This interview style empowers you without overwhelming you and that, at least for me, is the reason I enjoy Talking Code.

Bravo guys, keep up the good work!
