In The Front End podcast I explore the in's and out's of life as a developer. We delve into challenging topics around modern-day development and technology including learning and professional growth, programming languages, frameworks, tools, techniques, UX/UI, and careers.
I've been a developer for almost 20 years and have spent the majority of that career at the forefront of the user's experience, building user interfaces. For all I'm a regular writer of tutorials and articles on here and the Dev platform, I wanted to expand my creative outlets and bring a different type of content to my audience.
Also, as a coding mentor on the wonderful Coding Coach platform, I find that there is growing number of budding developers out there who would like help, advice and support on starting their career, asking questions and getting answers. A podcast seems like a great way to reach them with a little more warmth than the flat text of a blog aticle.
