The 6 Best Application Development Podcasts You Should Be Listening To

Over the last few years, podcasts have grown from a fringe media to one of the most popular ways to get news and information. For those in the know, or those who need to know, podcasts can be an excellent resource. With this in mind, our editors have compiled a list of our six favorite application development podcasts, listed below in no particular order. To keep up with the latest news, trends, best practices, and to hear from the top minds in the industry, we highly recommend giving these a listen.

This is by no means a complete list, and if we’ve missed any needles in the haystack, let us know!

Coding Blocks

We are a few guys who’ve been professional programmers for years. As avid listeners of podcasts and consumers of many things code-related, we were frustrated by the lack of quality programming (pun) available in listenable formats. Given our years of experience and real-world problem solving skills, we thought it might be worth getting into this world of podcasting and “giving back” a shot.

Friday Afternoon Deploy

 An unapologetic show about the culture and chaos of software engineering from the makers and breakers of digital products at Lofty Labs. We build software with Python and Django, Ruby and Rails, Golang, whatever frontend framework we’re forced to use because it’s popular this month, and anything else to get the job done right. Then on Friday afternoons we have a beer and talk about our regrets on this show.
