RATING
My favorite podcast! Joe, Allen, and Michael have great rapport! Every episode we dive into an interesting topic presented at a great "elevation" be it in the trees, or at that 30,000 foot view; all the while being entertaining and funny to boot!
First time listener - great show and I've now got to go and listen to some back casts to catch up with some of the other interesting topics you guys have covered. You guys just made my 10 ;-)
The podcast which got me to start taking my career seriously. Allen, Joe, and Michael have (combined) decades of experience, and it comes across in their discussions of algorithms, data structures, and the classics of our industry.They have a great chemistry (since they've been friends for so long), and they approach even the most difficult topics with humour and care.And don't let the ".NET" part of the title put you off. Whilst the show started with a speciality in .NET, it is more of a discussion of development topics with very little that is specific to .NET.
I have been listening to this podcast for many years now and am just now leaving a review because I am an ungrateful jerk. This podcast continually helps me progress my career as a developer. It continues to inspire me to keep learning and to understand my work at a deeper level. All with great humor as well.
Perfect balance of entertaining and educational.
Coding Blocks is hosted by three guys (Allen Underwood, Joe Zach, Michael Outlaw) talking about technology as you would with your friends and colleagues.The podcast format is to discuss and help each other learn what they know/experienced.Listening to Coding Blocks leave you feeling content as if you had a great technical conversation with them.
Entertaining, informative. Came for the dotnet, stayed for the overall general content that helped me become a better software engineer.
Outlaw will try to make you laugh,JZ will make you laughand Allen will laugh too..I stumbled across this podcast when looking for tips and tricks that would help me in becoming a successful engineer and found so much more. The hosts are engaging, entertaining and very knowledgeable and where they are lacking, they have forged an amazing community to set them straight.I love the podcast and community for how much they have helped me towards becoming a better developer and look forward to the day when I am finally up to date with their backlog. (currently on episode 183)I can highly recommend listening, even as a junior .NET engineer it has been invaluable!
An exceptionally detailed, yet easy to follow podcast. The hosts (Allen, Michael and Joe) take complex topics that a modern developer really should know and break them down into easy to follow chunks, injecting humour along the way.
The Top Coding Podcast This show is great. If your interested in any aspect of coding I would highly recommend. The topics covered sometimes cover specific topic in specific languages however a majority of conversation cover ideas and patterns around managing data solutions, class interactions, and designing how business logic flows though an application. As well as general rants about bad practices, insane ideas on how to organize your classes, and hardware that will have you reaching for your wallet.
Great podcast! Since know you value suggestions, here's mine: Although it doesn't seem to be an exact format of the podcast, but having a guest to interview from time to time would bring more variety to show among other things.In any case, keep up a good work!
I have been listening to Allen, Joe and Michael since I fell in love with .NET. As an aspiring developer (since 2019 and still an amateur/hobbyist, I regret) I have found so much use in the unique perspectives that Coding Blocks present as to what it is like to be a developer. These guys will take you from the most basic concepts all throughout the gnarly, dark alcoves in the field that no tutorial will be able to illuminate for you out there. And the best part of it is that they will make you feel like one of them while doing it.Let alone, they manage to bring some much-needed context to all this stuff that is truly hard to understand for someone who hasn’t been employed, someone who hasn’t worked with all these tools that appear to be second nature and obvious to some people, and they make it easily digestible! These guys make the intimidating concepts less intimidating, and that is why I appreciate their contribution to globally educating more refined and informed developers.I hope that you guys will have the funds to continue as you are doing, because I am really learning a lot while having fun with you guys.Kind RegardsGlen Jakobsen
The CodingBlocks podcast is one of my favorites! It's one third programming, one third tech news, one third tips, and one third dad jokes 💁
The Top Gear of dev podcasts.Long time listener, first time reviewer. I consistently learn more during one episode of Coding Blocks than 20 episodes of almost any other podcasts put together.You'll laugh, you'll cry, and sometimes, if you're lucky, you'll be serenaded by late-night DJ voices.Amazing work you guys, keep it up.PS Kotlin + Spring + IDEA Ultimate for the win!
I literally signed up to Podchaser just to review you guys! Look reader, you're probably here because you're looking for a way to be a better programmer, and get a few chuckles along the way. These guys are great, well sourced (thanks for that), kind, and will help you dive feet first into the development ecosystem. Full-Stack to DBA if you need a go-to listen, these are your guys. Thanks for the great work fellas! Sock Sock Shoe Shoe for me, I repeat it a lot though so I'm thinking I should delegate to EquipShoes(List<Sock> socks) :D.
Always interesting and gives me something to think about. 3 regular developers sharing their experiences and trying to find better ways to design and develop software. Well worth investing some of your podcast listening-time
One of the most consistently high quality and valuable podcasts out there! I started listening to it as I was starting my career in Software Development back in 2014, and have been a fan ever since. Their passion and excitement about the field is evident and infectious with every topic they cover. Ultimately, it makes me excited to go back to work with new ideas in mind which I hadn't been privvy to before! -Alex
This is a podcast I found from a list on Free Code Camp. Being a self-taught programmer, this is a great way to get a look at the tools, and the issues, that may come up in the work world. I started on the "Clean Code" series, and my impression was "Where is this information in all of the classes?!" They do an excellent job of presenting not only to experienced developers, but to those of us starting out, as well.
Love it, but I'm biased!
