Coding Blocks is one of my favorite programming podcasts and part of my list of recommended podcasts for game developers. So today I want to show you why I like it so much.
Episode 12 – What do you want to be when you grow up? – #define ME
This Episode discusses what programming language is best suited as a first language, if a wide or deep skillet if better and how they would start learning to program today. Recommended to anyone who wants to get into (web)programming.
Episode 7 – SOLID as a Rock!
A discussion of the SOLID principles for writing maintainable and extendable software by “Uncle Bob” Robert C. Martin. Also features the YAGNI, Rule of 3 and DRY principles. Recommended to anyone who wants to write clean code.
Episode 38 – How to be a Programmer: Personal and Team Skills
Episode 39 – How to be an Intermediate Programmer
Episode 40 – How to be an Advanced Programmer
While these are technically three episodes, they contain one big discussion about Robert Reads book: How To Be A Programmer. This book is a significant collection of How-To’s that concern personal skills, team skills and more. Recommended to anyone who wants to be a more professional programmer.
In my opinion, Coding Blocks is a must-listen podcast for any software developer. Their in-depth discussions of diverse software engineering topics are always worth listening to.
