The devRant Podcast is finally here!! We're happy to announce the release of episode #0 - featuring Andy Hunt (known for The Pragmatic Programmer, rubber duck debugging, DRY, and much more). We can't thank Andy enough for agreeing to be on our first podcast episode and it was so enjoyable to interview him.
We also want to give a huge thanks to our two devRant users who helped us out and came on to talk about their rants - @silhoutte and @sway. We also greatly appreciate all of the questions that were submitted by community members. We really wanted to ask all of them since there were a lot of good ones, but we had to narrow it down a little as Andy was already kind enough to go over the 20 minutes we had originally asked for. This episode features questions from @casanovanoir, @fatlard1993, and @3K-Vengeance.
You can get all the links to the podcast here: https://devrant.io/podcasts/... (available on iTunes, Google Play, and we've provided the raw mp3).
If you'd like to see it on any other platforms in the future, please let us know. And like always, feedback is appreciated since we're new to this and still learning our way when it comes to podcasting. If you enjoy the show, please rate it to help us out :)
The second episode of The devRant Podcast is here! We're happy to announce the release of episode #1 - featuring David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH) (known for creating Ruby on Rails, Basecamp, his book Rework, and much more). It was a thrill getting to interview David and we think everyone will really enjoy!
We also want to give a huge thanks to our two devRant users who helped us out and came on to talk about their rants - @peaam and @switchstep. We also greatly appreciate all of the questions that were submitted by community members. We really wanted to ask all of them since there were a lot of good ones, but unfortunately we ran out of time with DHH and we didn't get to ask any :/ We're going to make sure we better allocate time in the future.

At the end of our first podcast (https://devrant.io/podcasts/...) we gave a hint about the featured guest on our second episode. Now, it's time to announce this guest!
For the next episode of The devRant Podcast, we're fortunate enough to welcome David Heinemeier Hansson, also commonly known as DHH!! (http://david.heinemeierhansson.com/) David is the creator of Ruby on Rails and founder/CTO of Basecamp/37signals (project management tool), and a best-selling author know for titles like "Rework." He also drives race cars. We're extremely excited that we'll have the change to interview him as our second featured guest.
Like last time, it's time to take questions from the devRant community! If you have a question you'd like us to ask David, please add it as a comment on this rant or you can email me (email@example.com). Thanks everyone!6
Me: Fuck I love my chromebook!
The world: Why would you love Chromebooks, you cant even do anything with ChromeOS?!
Me: *Sit's down and listens to music and podcasts for 3 hours* Oh look, still got 82% battery...24
@dfox @trogus That was truly wonderful. I listen to a lot of podcasts, and perhaps it's because I'm a part of the community, but that was a really really good show!!
It's not easy to make me laugh in a podcast but I was fucking rolling9
1. Set your podcast player to 0.5x speed
2. Listen to your favorite dev podcast
3. Imagine they're all drunk
what do you listen to (music, podcasts, etc...) while coding?
being a musician, i find it difficult to listen to music while coding because i find myself concentrating on the music instead.22
Can I just say that I am so fucking tired of all the podcasts and blogs and tweets and posts and articles and rants and websites and pages and shows promoting languages X, Y, Z, FU and whatever fucking letter you can think of.
And all the fucking debates and arguments and cries around "what is your favorite language" and "why is X better than Y".
Knowing any/all of them programming languages doesn't make anyone a programmer.
Might I suggest this: learn algos, design patterns, architectures, strategies, common use cases, development frameworks. Learn how to learn and learn how to fail and learn from it. Spend less time sucking your cocks on the internet about WhaT a GreAt LanGuaGe TiS Is aNd So NicE CoDeS.
Spend less time arguing and focus less on whatever cocksucking language you use, they're just like tools, you pick them based on the job YOU are meant to do. You're not paid for having a Python tat on your fat cock, nor for the armies of C++ wielding old farts you've exterminated on VirtualShitsForum.com, you are paid for RESULTS and getting the job done.
Don't be the next drone fucktard with 917823459 years experience writing Cocklang++ at G-shitsuck who can't crap out a fucking 3 table MVP.7
I moved to US a month ago and now I work as a steward in a hotel but I hate this job so fucking much. The fact that I know how to code and work in this shitty job feels like I lose chromosomes every second I work there. I just really wish I could work on what I love and code a lot. When I'm at work I listen to programming podcasts (I listen to this app podcasts too) and just think about the internship I'm doing. Code is always running in my head and it all feels like I waste my time even doe I need it for now until I can have enough money to move to another state. I hope this situation changes for the better.7
I keep improving as a developer by:
Listening to podcasts
Reading others code
And searching so😃
Learning learning. .always learning2
Hey guys, is there any good general programming podcasts that talks about a wide variety of concepts?32
Do you folks listen to podcasts? What are your favorite ones? The ones I listen to weekly are Geekrant, Linux Gamecast Weekly, and Linux Weekly Daily Wednesdays (done by the LGC group). I'm looking for more tech related ones, though.7
You ask a simple question, and someone answers with a URL to a podcast they have already listened to that is 30 minutes long..
Yeah, that's really nice, but what about a single one sentence text answer that doesn't take me another 29 minutes and 30 seconds to find the answer going the podcast route..
Also, text consumes a lot less internet bandwidth too !
Is this the new thing, answers to podcasts with no transcripts for quick answer finding..
And not telling people the answer in the first place !
I mean its great for reference.
Just, don't beat around the bush !
There's only 24 hours in each day, I can't spend all my time watching videos for a handful of answers that I should be able to digest in 5 minutes if they was written down !11
Recently started to listen to (IT/Programming) podcasts and enjoying them quite a lot. Any suggestions on podcasts I should check out?13
i've got my first job after getting out of college. not a great package. I'm learning more, will get experience. i have plans for freelancing and seek a better job. I'm an Indian.
what really upsets me is that I just discovered that I've no knowledge in finance. I'm feeling insecure, afraid and depressed. I'm browsing for some youtube channels, books and podcasts to get some some knowledge about finance and real estate.
all I have is a saving account in SBI bank, I just know how to take money out of it with my debit card and transfer money with online banking
how do u guys do ur finance, where do u invest. do u invest in stock market. insurance?? help me out. i'm fucked.
never thought i can be so stupid, I hate myself, never even thought I'll need financial intelligence.
are there more people like me.
i'm just so down and feeling suicidal.9
Lots of questions going on about devRant. Just want to make devRant better.
1. Please tell the update intervals of upvotes and downvotes. Is there a delay? Doesnt really matter but i see many times i got a upvote notif but my score didnt increased...
2. Duplicate image algo is so poor. I know it is only in beta, but i see so many reposts which has the same pic but only with the resolution different or the image with the devrant watermark.
3. Minor, tags should be also saved when exitting the post rant activity.
4. Feature request : go to top, bottom in rant
5. Please make web app accessible in mobile. I think you check the user agent for the web app, but can you make it available to mobile users who cant download the app?
6. When accessing the web app in mobile, i type devrant.io/feed
Then, by the wonderful intent you made, it opens the app automatically. I was writing a rant, but it was all deleted.
7. Any new podcasts and cartoons planned?
8. Still bug not fixed.
Write a comment in a long rant.
Delete the comment you just wrote.
You cant reply to the last person comment.
Since morning, I’ve used-
Facebook, Instagram,whats app
Google search, chrome, YouTube ,Gmail
iPhone, Apple Music, Apple podcasts
Amazon video, kindle
Can’t believe how much our lives revolve around these giants!
Every day when I am going to and from work I listen to a podcast called Developer Tea. I can really recommend it, it talks about everything that is devrelated. Not only about technical stuff but also about how you should be as a person as a developer. I shared mine so now I am curious to hear: what is the best podcast/podcasts you listen to?15
I really like it when I work at home cus I know it's very productive.
I'd be working for 30 mins then I tell myself to take a break...
I scroll through facebook then I'm reminded of reddit... and then google plus.. and then podcasts.. and then youtube videos... then I proceed to discover the far reaches of the internet.............. OH NO1
Not really a rant but just curious who listens to podcasts and which channel is your favorite?
Mine are Software Engineering Radio and InfoQ4
Can anyone suggest any good computer science/IT/development/coding/computery based podcasts to listen to?
I'm getting awfully bored of listening to idiots jabber away about nonsense each night.4
Anybody here listens to podcasts? Share if you do. Suggest some podcast on topics like programming and business startup, VCs etc.12
I'm clearly a little obsessed with Destiny, but it's what helps me unwind at the end of the day. Between working full time, 16 credit hours at school, and a baby girl coming in just a couple of weeks, I have to have something to escape reality for just a little bit sometimes.
Destiny isn't all I play, but it takes up most of the time and the game that - for that last several years at least - brings me the greatest amount of joy. It's the game that has finally made me buckle down and get serious about finishing school work on game dev.
Other activities include podcasts - which I am devouring nearly constantly - and movies. I have about 20 podcasts I'm currently actively subscribed to with another 20 that I have on reserve in case I get through my list too fast. As for movies, I watch them when I have time. Recent watches that I've enjoyed were Destroyed, On The Basis Of Sex, and Aquaman.3
I've tried so many ways for that at night or during walk spark of bug solving ideas:
- fluorescent ink on regular paper
- florescent mini whiteboards
- "alexa remind me.."
- writing down in my phone
- recording on my phone
But all of those due to my short term memory made me forget half the things by the time I opened the fucking phone/app, found where to grab the pen or the whole dance for alexa, to remember the exact phrase I have to spell out, when it should remind me, what time,..
Earlier today I remembered how I had a little tape voice recorder I used to use a ton, thankfully that tech advanced by now and found myself a stereo mic setup little voice recorder that can also act as an mp3 player!
Went for a walk today, while listening to some podcasts, then it hit me as usual on how to fix and implement some things that were awkward at best on paper when I left home, pressed the record button, recorded it and went straight back to music mode, which remembered where I left off!
I'm so indescribably happy, I ordered quite a bunch of the same to just throw around everywhere, at the bed, in the bathroom, kitchen, for walking outside, everywhere haha7
Never been a fan of podcasts before, but I'm fixing to take a stab at listening to some.
What's a good tech/programming podcast? (Bonus points if it's about Cyber security)
Reinvent the wheel but be prepared to let that little project aside.
Follow a lot of people (twitter, rss, slack, etc) but do not jesusify anyone.
Listen to podcasts but remember most of them are advertising.
Read technical papers but don't take every idea as brilliant.
Just finished listening to devRant's new podcast. In fact, I listened twice! So good, so much info and so much fun. Special guest Andy Hunt, surprise devRant community members and more. Each segment was a blast.
Thanks @trogus and @dfox for a great inaugural podcast. Can't wait for the next episode.
I hope everyone has an opportunity to enjoy it. https://devrant.io/podcasts/...
So no decent internet for me the whole damn weekend and I have no more podcasts left to listen to while working. FUUUUU ...
The internet "technician" that was supposed to connect the house to VDSL really fucked my connection up - I escalated through support and I can't fix it.
(I hate it when I can't fix things myself! Especially electronic ones! Especially simple electronic ones! Damn it!)
Einmal mit Profis arbeiten!*
*[Translation, angry German to angry English:
I'd very much like to work with professionals. One. Fucking. Time.]6
The new devRant upgrade is great! So cool that everyone can easily get to podcasts from the menu. Comments interface nice improvements. devRant rules!
What (music) are you listening to at work?
Most of the time I need music to get in a kind of flow during coding.
Sometimes I listen to some podcasts or have a documentary running.
Fortunately, my bosses are quite tolerant.15
any of you guys listen to programming-related podcasts? 🎧
I recently came across "Syntax", a podcast on web development. They cover pretty basic stuff but I still find it interesting.
Would love to know if there are any other podcasts on programmin 🙂5
Does anyone here listen to game dev related podcasts? If so, which ones?
From me, I can definitely recommend The Debug Log. They've got a lot of energy, knowledge and experience. Also the way they talk makes me feel a lot more motivated.1
for everyone that likes podcasts, the new runtimerror live podcast released its first episode today :)
Proactively seeking out new knowledge: mostly podcasts and watching what's new on github.
keeping an open mind: just because some pattern is industry proven doesn't mean its necessarily the better,
Testing: write a test describing a problem then trying to write slightly different solutions (eg. One that leverages service location, another that emphasize dependency injection..),
Forced & timed breaks: keep hydrated, don't get stuck "spinning the wheel".. :)
So besides college, what are some good books, podcasts, articles, websites, games, apps, etc. To learn how to code and be more proficient in that language?
Any information helps
"Every great developer you know got there by solving problems they were unqualified to solve until they actually did it" -Patrick McKenzie1
The devRant October 11 news update is amazing. devRant continues to grow and becomes more fun and informative every day. The upcoming story feature is valuable in my opinion. The podcasts are off the chart.
The new products are great - just ordered my sweatshirt.
You guys are working hard and the community appreciates it.
Awesome devrant podcasts.
Seriously, if you enjoy devrant you will be really impressed with the two they have done so far.
Surprised at the five star guests they have gotten so far.
Just need to net Uncle Bob.
I'm starting to think that I could listen to some podcasts while I work, to learn things in the background.
Would you recommend good podcasts?
I'd like to listen to software dev good practices, or real life dev stories to learn from. Also videogame dev related would be good too.5
@dfox This update is flawed podcasts need to be inside the app not a link to the side and I cant scroll down I don't know if it's my phone or not any1 experiencing this1
Hey everyone, I'm sorry if this is the wrong plqce to do this but I'm trying to start a programming podcast and have a blog with a few hundred daily readers (https://www.runtimerror.com) . I'm in need of someone to regularly do podcasts with (they'd be a weekly thing). If anyone wants to join, feel free to comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk further.4
You know what makes no sense and sucks?
I call it "metamedia" (whatever dafuq the genre is actually called).
I mean these books/podcasts/movies about how someone did something. Actually more or less it's just a biography of some dude who did something somewhen, called "The <name of dude> principle". And most of them could be just a really long interview in some newspaper. But there is no money in newspapers, right? Better publish it as book and all the other platforms/things used for enjoyment before this storm of biographies started.
Audible is full of these and I do enjoy informing myself about the success of some Elon Musk but at some point its fucken enough.:D
For me it all has to do with doing stuff outside of work. You are not a developer for your 9 to 5. You are a developer 24/7 and it is one of the few professions where you can work on something all the time if you want to.
Not many professions have that.
In my case it's mostly books, blogposts for respectable developers and podcasts.
I also like creating a problem and making myself find the solution to it.
If you really want to learn something you need to touch it, not read about it.2
I need your help.
I think I'm addicted to distractions and diversions. It's ruining my life and any chance to get experience.
Instead of actual developing, I constantly watch development tutorials and courses, listen to podcasts about development, read books and articles about development, post on development forums and go to development meetups.
I can't write a few lines of code without being 100% concentrated first, and afterwards I get distracted by everyday life events only to find myself at the end too tired to do anything productive and then surrender to sleep.
I'm getting depressed. How can I fight this? How can I push myself to work and be an actual developer?2
I know I can't be the only one of us that listens to dev related podcasts. Does anyone have any good ones they'd like to share? I'm looking for something more entertaining than Software Engineering Daily, yet more informative than MS Dev Show.1
DevRant, who else is into podcasts? My favorites are the Tim Ferriss Show, Developer Tea & Modern Love.5
Any fellow 'programming throwdown' podcast listeners here?
If not, I would highly recommend listening to them if you haven't heard them before. They do podcasts on popular languages but the format they use is really good. It's both funny and insightful.
I never take breaks at work unless it’s lunchtime - this of course has led to some health problems, so now I try taking more breaks.
But when I’m having a tough time at work I try to notify my colleagues and I usually take breaks more often. Some of which include going for a walk outside, catching some fresh air.
And when commuting home I drink some beer on the train and play sudoku or a binary puzzle while listening to podcasts, or I just take out my Switch and play.
Besides devrant podcast, which good podcasts you guys usually listen to?
I usually listen to:
Adventures in angular
Software engineering daily
Audibles are a great way to fall asleep... Like granny's bedtime stories... I used to listen to music before but now it's pretty much replaced by audio books and podcasts.1
Spotify, where are my Subscribed Podcasts? Why do mobile App, Web Player, native MacOS App, and native Linux app so diffrent in the UI and even in the wording used? Leaves me, your paying user, upset and confused.3
0. Do all practice in Clean Code
2. Learn Python
3. Be proud of the work done in my current job project (I've just started)
4. Read own code from <wk100 and say: "omg I'm a much better programmer today!"
5. Implement 32 hour days to have time to read all those books, listen all those podcasts, code all those katas...
When i code, i listen music but sometimes it's get boring, so i listen podcasts about warhammer 40,000 lore. What do you listen?8
Which podcasts do you guys listen to? I've listened to syntax.fm and devrant podcasts and both are amazing.2
*plays song list of a singer in spotify*
*dislikes and immediately closes after 5 seconds*
Spotify: wHo liKeS ThaT sInGeR AlSo liStENs tO tHiS PoDCasTs!
What the fuck spotify?! I DIDN'T LIKE THAT SINGER. In fact, I didn't even listened to a single podcast. Now every fucking day, I have to see uninteresting podcasts on my fucking homepage. And I cant even disable that recommendations or click something like 'I am not interested'
Spotify: Do you like these podcasts?
Spotify: DO YOU WANNA LIKE IT?
FUCKING NO! JUST STOP! Its been 1 month and that recommendations still hangs on top of my homepage. I had to deal with this and I played somewhat related podcasts to my interests. And you know what? That fucking podcasts are gone! I still dont listen to the podcasts but at least It started to recommend something releated to my interests. Oh god... I hate when you can't customize software you use.9
I used to be an iPhone user since iPhone 3, every year switching to the new model, always complaining about limitations and jailbreaking it with the concerns this brings up to the table, anyway, I also tried other cellphones like Samsung Galaxy XXX, worse shit ever, and those annoying Samsung apps you cannot uninstall, pfff, worst of the worst.
I started with pure Android phones some years ago, first with pixel 2, holly shit, software is amazing, I was amazed an happy with my phone, "infinite cloud storage for free" yes please!!!
The problem comes after 5 months of use, battery drains in less than 3 hours, even with the cellphone screen off and not using it, it was under warranty and got a new battery for free, well, no that bad. Suddenly the apps start blocking each other and takes a lot to open or switch between apps. I bought also the famous PIXEL BUDS, worst purchase ever, you never know if they are charging or still connected, no matter how hard do you try, it randomly connects, I tried all the possible solutions, didn't work, one random day, the buds went off, got new ones thanks to the warranty, now they are starting to fail again.
Bought the pixel 3, same exact shit as before, same errors, same shitty hardware, battery drains in hours, and I am a regular user, I do not have games or use it in an intensive way.
- Google: Shitty hardware, great software, no limitations(I can send you one of my songs through Whatsapp and copy anything form my computer as a file), but god, why your hardware is so bad?
Also, a lot of free apps, but very bad designed, just look for any app to listen podcasts, you have to waste 10secs every fucking time to listen your shit, freedom comes with a price no doubt.
- Samsung: I have no idea who want that shit and why, , not satisfaction at all
- Apple: Fucking expensive, have to pay for everything, but quality is much better, hardware is flawless, I have to admit it, my GF has a freaking iPhone 7 and her phone is fine the whole day, on the downside, well, costs and limitations relative to sharing and use
So, I will switch again to fucking Apple, best of the 3 bad evils15
I feel like I had been living under the rock. Just discovered Software Engineering Daily on Podcast Addict 😍 Can't be stoked enough to learn about vast expanse of knowledge and incredible experiences laid out there! What are some of your favorite podcasts?!1
I'm seeking opinions and thoughts on my predicament.
I have 2ish paths before me.
Next year I resume my studies in Science Communication and Computer Science in particiliar a bachelor of science, I have considered then doing master in managent or computer science.
1) I am able to have a income of about 800 AUD a fortnight (this is to support me during study without requiring work) plus extra from a part time job whilst I study for about 2 years. Throughout this time I would like to skill up in a variety of fields as immensley as possible.
2) I can accept a full time junior web developer job while I study, this job is with a great government research organisation which as a first FT job looks great on a resume, it is is project based work where I get given a project and code and pretty much complete it. The job is flexible, I can mostly work where-ever I want, at home, at a cafe, travelling. With maybe a meeting once a week. The pay is about 65kAUD a year.
Both options are very attractive options with each containing there own pros and cons. With the extra money I could learn more or use it to grow a business or do more.
However without the FT job I could still earn about 1-1.5k a fortnight for alot less time.
I am still discovering what to do in life, I'm very good at public speaking and would like to experience and learn more about lots of different things. My current knowledge is very broad from engineering to CS, graphic design, authoring, trade skills, Digitial design and more.
Ideally I would like to learn how to lead people, to make the world a better place and help people. Figuring out where my strengths lay and where to apply them is difficult as I am fascinated by so many things.
I worry about taking the FT job as it might detract from my studies and lead me to pursueing mostly only web development work as well as take up time that might be better spent on extra study or in a leadership position in a uni club.
The PT job is a IT Systems Technician in the Australian Defence Force.
Which is a interesting experience within itself, different from civilian life and also I would be learning about systems that I might have less experience with.
I have such broad interests in alot of fields that I don't seem to be focussed on select things or areas like other devs I've met, Science Communication is a versitile field, one of my professors expertise is on doctor who and it's role in science engagement, she has written books on it. Others are in public policy or directed podcasts or even made games. Despite my broad interests computer science was always a gield I did well in.
Any thoughts, opinions or questions are welcome.
I have a blog/portfolio I put my work and projects up if it helps people know more about me, you can find it at curiosityplace.wordpress.com2
Since I don't commute to work since last year I don't really know how to consume those podcasts and audiobooks I care, I cannot listen to them while I work. If you encounter this problem, how did you solve it?4
podcasts... any recommendations?
I'm just beginning to listen to them and don't really know what's good lol. so any recommendation in general?
and If there's any tech related ones or about software dev it'd be great. tyyy 😄14
Curious to know how many devs here listen to the "soft skills engineering" podcast.
Also what other industry related podcasts y'all listen to?5
So I just heard that the JS Air podcast is going off air in November 😕
Can anyone suggest some other dev-related podcasts?6
Do podcasts, tutorials, or presentations in general help you think differently or help you with your thought processes when programming?2
I love listening podcasts while doing stuffs, but I just can't pay attention to it when I'm programming. My mind focus on the code and ignore whatever I'm listening :/1
About the devRant podcast... Why they don't have a feed (I know you put it in many "funny places" like Google play, iTunes, but I like to use WeCast to listen to my podcasts...2
I am just recently getting into podcasting. I have all the equipment and am working on ideas at the moment.
I believe I have some knowledge worth sharing both in dev and in other aspects of life.
Do any other podcasters, YouTubers, Instagramers etc have any great advice?
Was there some things that you thought you knew but turned out to be untrue? Any commonly held beliefs that you found not to hold up?
I wonder what happened to devrant podcasts. They were so great. Are there any new episodes coming up?
What podcasts do you guys listen to?4
Daily I ride one hr to office so today while driving I listened devrant podcasts
(Usually I listen Spotify)
It was pretty informative in sense of knowing things which has been around us but we never realise till somebody knocks your head.
Waiting for more podcast from you guys..
Only just got around to listing to the devRant podcast #1 this morning. DHH is a little potty mouth 🙃
Excellent content none the less! I kind of agree on DHH's stance on project managers.
On a side note, what other podcasts do you guys listen to? I quite like most of the content from jupiter broadcasting. LAS and Coder Radio specifically.
Listening to podcasts on programming and development, and one on data science peaked my interest. Any data scientists out there willing to share what you're actually doing with data science?1
Hey fellow devs, got any suggestions for good tech podcasts to follow?
A good mix of broad overview stuff to stay up-to-date with developments and in-depth for those times when I’ve got a bit more time.
Stay well out there!
Am I the only one that negatively judges people who listen to podcasts or audio books while they write code?12
Do you guys listen to any programming podcasts which do not just center around one particular programming language? Any podcasts regarding topics like universal programming concepts, history of programming etc. At the moment I'm listening to Command Line Heroes (from RedHat) but I have almost listened to every episode and need new stuff :)1
