Dev Talk: Our Top Five Developer Podcasts

Dev Talk: Our Top Five Developer Podcasts

August 17, 2017 | 2-minute read

As a developer-driven payments company, we’re obsessed with staying current on all the latest tech trends. And one of the ways we do that? Listening to podcasts for devs, by devs.

Here are five of our favorites:

The Bike Shed

A “discussion of experience and challenges with Ruby, Rails and JavaScript” that’s garnered a 5-star rating on iTunes, The Bike Shed’s unscripted conversation between its three hosts and guests dives into the details of day-to-day development.

Functional Geekery

This podcast covers topics across multiple programming languages and features live discussions with guests. Both the topics and guests are diverse, and listeners will be treated to the host’s enthusiastic delivery of relevant content.

The Cynical Developer

A newer podcast, The Cynical Developer “helps developers improve their knowledge and career through explaining the latest and greatest in development technology and providing you with what you need to succeed as a developer.” With only one host and an average run time of about 30 minutes, this one’s short and sweet.

Greater Than Code

Six panelists and guests focus on the human side of software development in this podcast. The panelists keep things newbie-friendly by taking time to call out terms that may be unfamiliar to some of their listeners, and the simultaneously funny and smart discussions on the social and cultural aspects of coding will leave listeners reflecting on how they can use their coding powers to better their community.

Build Phase

For a podcast that assumes the listener is familiar with the material and doesn’t waste time with exposition, tune into Build Phase, a “weekly technical podcast discussing iOS development and design.” Three hosts lead this 5-star-rated podcast by talking about the specific challenges they’re facing with real projects and providing technical tips.
