As a web developer you have to keep learning new stuff everyday everyday if you want to keep up to date on what’s happening out there.
One way I keep myself updated, is by listening to podcasts about web development. I think podcasts is a great way to learn new stuff.
Why? Because you can be on the move, doing exercising or any other stuff that doesn’t have something to do with your ears.
The jungle of web podcast is big, and this post will try to wrap up some of the best web podcasts I’ve come across.
I hope it will help you and other developers to learn new stuff on the way in the jungle of web development.
If you know some great podcast about web development, please share them in comments.
I will keep on updating this post with new podcast that I find interesting.
Wish you a happy listening!
My list of great Web Podcasts
ShopTalk show is a weekly sound-effect podcast about front-end design and development.
The two hosts of the show Chris Coyier and Dave Rupert have both many years of front-end development behind them.
Each week they have a new guest in the studio and answer questions send in by their listeners.
One of my personal favorites and a must have on your podcast list.
The Big Web Show
Jeffrey Zeldman is the host of this awesome podcasts, where he invites special guests to talk about web development and design.
The show is about everything web matters.
Breaking development podcast
The Breaking development podcast is one of my favorite podcasts, which is about the web in general. Where do the web come from? What its current status? Where is it heading?
Together with various guests, the podcast tries to answer these questions.
The East Wing
Tim Smith is the host of this podcast, which I enjoy listening to every week. Tim invites guest from both the design and web industry, to talk about how they solve their clients problems and turn them into great solutions.
The web ahead
This podcast was one of my first podcast subscriptions.
The host Jen Simmons invites guest from the web industry to talk on the show about the future of the web.
The podcast discusses upcoming web technologies and how they changes the web.
This podcast is not about web technologies as the others listed above.
Instead Andrew Clarke and Anna Debenham talks about how to run a creative business.
I listed it here because it’s a great show to listen if you are running a business yourself. Andrew and Anna tells which things you should be aware of when running a creative business.
Especially they talk about how to create good relationships with clients through contracts.
