A podcast hosted by Kathryn Hodge and Robyn Silber that aims to introduce others to coding, demystify core programming concepts, provide tips for success, and start more conversations around important topics in technology.
The Daily Routines of a Software Developer
Kathryn and Robyn each share what a typical day looks like for them as software developers working in the tech industry. Find out what they do to make time for the things that matter to them while also balancing a full-time job and side hustles.
Sample Projects for a Beginner Programmer (Part 2)
Kathryn and Robyn continue where they left off in episode 8 by walking through 3 additional beginner projects: a library catalogue, a quiz, and a game of hangman.
Favorite Mobile Apps for Your Everyday Programmer
Happy New Year! Hear some stories about our favorite mobile apps in this week's episode of The Programmer Toolbox. Discover what apps and wearables we use as software developers and how they fit into our everyday lives.
Sample Projects for a Beginner Programmer
Time to dive in, practice your skills, and start building your programming portfolio! Kathryn and Robyn discuss what considerations to make when defining the requirements for your coding projects. You'll be walked through how to build sample beginner projects that apply the fundamental computer science concepts covered in earlier episodes.
Data Structures and Object Oriented Programming for Beginner Programmers
Do you store every piece of data in its own variable? Probably not... and if you had to, that would not be very fun, especially if had thousands or millions of data pieces. This week Kathryn and Robyn from The Programmer Toolbox will be talking all about data structures and why you need them. They'll also explain the basics of how you can organize data with object oriented programming and why it might be useful in your programs.
Beginner Technical Terms in Software Development
In continuation of Episode 2, Episode 6 covers the next set of important software development terminology for beginners. Kathryn and Robyn introduce the elements that make up a programming language.
I really like how Kathryn and Robyn explain and makes computer science more simple.
I wish they have more episodes.
Informative and Interesting
Kathryn and Robyn do a great job breaking down useful information for folks interested in becoming a software developer. The length of the podcast seems just right and the back-and-forth conversational style combined with their personal experiences and thoughts works well. Thanks for sharing!
Really glad that I found this
I found this podcast from Cathrine’s YouTube channel which alone helps me so much. I’m in college for a WDV major, currently taking my first JS class and learning about frameworks and all the stuff that’s supposed to make coding easier. I often get really overwhelmed by all of the information I’m taking in at once and sometimes discouraged. But for some reason, the information sinks in a lot easier when hearing from these two! I’m currently working on building my portfolio so that I can feel confident in applying for an internship, so I’m finding these podcast episodes very helpful for where I’m at right now.
