Whether you’re learning how to code, a self-taught programmer, or an industry veteran, podcasts in particular can be a convenient tool for enhancing your skills and technical knowledge. But being a software developer isn’t just about complicated code and programming languages — developers create and maintain products that influence our everyday lives, so it’s important to understand the human impact software creates, too.
While many shows help break down the technical, there are several popular podcasts that discuss that impact and touch on often overlooked aspects of development. Many are also hosted by developers themselves, who provide behind-the-scenes looks at careers in programming.
