Have started collating list of important podcasts which are a must listen for software engineers here. This is not an exhaustive list. Please help with adding more such podcasts in this list.

Thanks

      Why not make a PR?

      1. 1

        I listened to a few episodes of this and I don’t get it. I guess it’s a parody podcast? I feel stupid admitting that, because obviously it’s supposed to be funny.

        Maybe I’m not a hardcore enough developer to ride this ride :)

        1. 2

          It may be hard to jump into recent episodes.

          I find their views on tech and programming refreshing, if a bit vulgar.

          1. 1

            Thanks for the hint. I’ll try going back to the beginning of the feed.

        2. 1

          PR please

        3. 2

          BTW I suggest that you post the link to your github repo rather than referencing it in the text.

          Also, I submitted a PR with my favorites :)

          1. 2

            ditto

            1. 2

              Sure thanks, I am unable to edit the post though. Not sure why ?

              1. 1

                Last time I had an issue like that @pushcx fixed it. Not sure if there’s a generic way to flag moderator assistance…

                1. 4

                  @rshetty is unable to edit it because the story’s been posted for more than six hours. I can’t edit the url because it never had one. That’s an odd limitation that might just be an oversight of a corner case, so I’m going to think on it before maybe I reverse it.

                  And, yeah, mentioning me or messaging me here or on IRC is the way to get attention to things that need tweaking.

                  And Why Are Computers, though inactive, is good enough that I’d add it to the list. :)

                  1. 3

                    Although I don’t usually do podcasts, a description like this is a sure way to convince me to try one:

                    “Chris Patuzzo tells the story of creating the Sentient programming language, with diversions into NAND to Tetris, self-enumerating pangrams, the boolean satisfiability problem, and The Witness.”

            2. 2

              Has Giant Robots Smashing Into Other Giant Robots actually started talking tech again? For a long time it became business blah blah blah.

              I’m not an entrepreneur or a biz-dev person, so I realize this makes me a terrible human being but I’m Just Not Interested :)

              1. 2

                Would you consider breaking the podcasts down into categories, or expanding on what areas, topics, and expertise each offers? Otherwise it’s just a big list of sometimes descriptive names.

                Edit: which I would contribute to, but I don’t listen to tech podcasts at this point, so at best I could just copy/paste whatever their website says. If you’re a long time listener, your summary is much more valuable, and really the core value here in my approximatarion.

                1. 3

                  This is a good idea. Developer Tea (the podcast I host) isn’t for everyone. Many developers don’t like it because it leans more towards talking about peopleware over software.

                  1. 1

                    I think this makes sense, I would add some description and categorization to the podcasts I know about. Need help from community on the others.Please feel free to raise a PR

                  2. 2

                    Just wanted to pop in and thank you for including Developer Tea on the list. Certainly humbled to be on a list with these other incredible shows!

                    1. 2

                      Thanks, this is a great idea!

                      Since it seems the list is going to grow fairly long, it might be helpful to have some organization and/or short descriptions for each podcast so it’s easy to pluck out items of interest. Some topics are obvious based on the podcast names, but others are much less so.

                      1. 2

                        I think since the list is growing long, I think we need categorization for these and a short description on what these podcasts are about. Also mentioning the frequency of episodes. I will start with podcasts I know about. Need help from you guys to categorize other podcasts. Thanks. Please feel free to raise a PR.

                        1. 2

                          I would actually suggest that you don’t accept PRs, and instead only add ones that you’ve personally vetted. If there is no acceptance criteria, except that it’s related to tech and someone somewhere suggested it, this becomes more of a directory and less of a “must listen” list. Both are valuable, but from the description, it sounds like you’re trying to build the latter.
