What podcasts do you listen to?

madza profile image Madza ・1 min read

Having some truly inspiring web development podcasts in your bookmarks is a great way to learn. DEV.to has an awesome list of DEV podcasts, too.

Some of my favorites include Syntax, Full Stack Radio, Coding Blocks, Merge Conflict, Developer Tea and DevDiscuss.

What are your favorites to listen to?

Sure thing, it's always a great practice to listen to something non-tech as well. For example, I've listened to some Soft Skills Engineering episodes and they are awesome from a different perspective. πŸ’―
I believe softs skills are heavily underrated in today's market. ☹

Soft skills are very important!
But also just some random stories make you relax, it’s ok to not be a dev 100% of the time.
Something many people expect or think sometimes

I see where you are going. Sometimes I like to take at least a couple days off and switch to something like hiking, biking, etc, where I can fully relax the mind. 🏞
It works wonders, as you come back fully energized and you can find solutions to stuff that didn't click for weeks at daily routine. βœ¨πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ

I always wondered do they translate technical terms like containers, cache, hoisting, etc in non-English languages?? πŸ‘€

Hey, Basically no, we almost always say the technical terms in English, for example: "Hay que borrar la cache del navegador" o "Necesitamos un hosting para nuestra aplicacion" xD

Hahah, yeah I guess trying to translate particular terms might sound awkward πŸ˜‚
At the end of the day, the key point is to understand the context πŸ˜‰

Yes, in the end it is to understand the context

Corecursive is by far the best podcast I listen to. Every episode has at least one spicy take that challenges me and my assumptions about what "good code" is.
