Have you ever wondered about getting started in web development? Want to know how those of us who have been doing it for years learn more?
I would highly recommend checking out the below podcasts. They are not only fun to watch but full of highly informative people as well.
Part of the learn build teach mentality is also creating content like these podcasts. It helps you really grow as a person because you have to know so many different aspects of the web. On Purrfect.dev we talk to such a variety of people about everything from hosting providers and database services, to front-end library supporters.
If you haven’t already, check out Purrfect.dev today, or join us on our Friday livestream Code with Coding Cat.

FSJam Podcast: Conversations about the emerging world of Fullstack Jamstack applications. Anthony Campolo and Christopher Burns explore the development practices of the frameworks, libraries, and services enabling this new paradigm.
Anthony and Christopher have such a light hearted yet hilarious way of distilling a lot of amazing information. You should for sure give FSJam a follow on twitter to stay updated with all the fun that comes from it.
PodRocket covers everything you need to know about frontend web development on a weekly basis. Join LogRocket cofounder Ben Edelstein, the LogRocket engineering team, and more, as they interview experienced developers about all the libraries, frameworks, and tech industry issues they deal with every day.
I am sure you have seen LogRocket’s Blog, just think of all that amazing content with the person being interviewed about it!
Compressed.fm: A weekly podcast about web design and development with a little zest from James Q Quick and Amy Dutton.
James Q Quick and Amy Dutton are amazing and also part of the Learn Build Teach community with myself and Brittney Postma so I might be a little biased here, but this show is the 💣!
RemotelyInteresting: Join us to chat about Jamstack, coding the web, the people who code the web, and sometimes, lollies. With love from Netlify 💙.
Well when you have this crew, how can you even compete? They add hilarity and smarts all in a simple informative podcast.
Front End Happy Hour
Front End Happy Hour: A podcast featuring panelists of engineers from @Netflix, @Evernote, @Atlassian & @LinkedIn talking over drinks about all things Front End development.
Front End Happy Hour has become my weekly cast. I enjoy how light the conversation remains, while the technical material is amazingly relevant. Of course it is easy to this when you have some of the top experts in some of the biggest Tech companies as guests.
Syntax - Tasty Web
Syntax is hosted by Wes Bos and Scott Tolinski. Both are gifted teachers and have great tutorial based websites wesbos.com and leveluptutorials.com respectively. I usually catch up on these while running.
This really is a party, not in the sense everyone is filling up balloons all the time. It is more of the kind of party where all the Stranger Things get around a table and nerd out for a while! I really enjoy how empowering the episodes make you feel after listening.
Developer Tea exists to help driven developers connect to their ultimate purpose and excel at their work so that they can positively impact the people they influence. With over 13 million downloads to date, Developer Tea is a short podcast hosted by Jonathan Cutrell, co-founder of Spec and developer at Clearbit. We hope you'll take the topics from this podcast and continue the conversation, either online or in person with your peers.
Jonathan's voice is so soothing, you won't be able to stop listening (be careful while driving). This podcast fits great on most commutes as it usually seems to be about 15 minutes or less (a few are longer). This podcast is basically yoga for my ears, it makes me settle down and really appreciate the goals that are constantly rolling around in my mind. As of writing this there are 720 episodes, I don't know how anyone can make that many so quickly, but they are all really well made and though out.
AngularAir is a video podcast about the Google Angular platform hosted by Justin Schwartzenberger.
Angular Air has a weird way of publishing their podcasts. So I will usually catch theirs on YouTube, as it tends to be interactive which is awesome!
Adventures in Angular
Adventures in Angular is a weekly podcast about developments in the Angular community, tools, techniques, and ecosystem.
Adventures in Angular is new for me but after listening to the latest with Hans Larsen and the work on the Angular CLI I am eager to work through the backlog, it is currently episode 252 so it might take me a minute.
Conversations about React with your favorite developers.
React Podcast is hosted by Michael Chan, in full honesty I haven't listened to a cast yet, but this came up as a suggestion since I am new to the ReactJS community. So it is now in my queue to learn a lot! I think this may not be active anymore
Shop Talk Show: A live podcast about front end web design and UX.
I found Shop Talk Show very recently and have been really enjoying it. Dave Rupert is a fun guy to listen to and his site is super awesome! If you don't know the name Chris Coyier, I am sure you have seen a thing he Co-founded called CodePen, and used to run a small site called CSS-Tricks. So lets just say they are really smart guys, that have on really smart
Google Cloud Platform Podcast
The Google Cloud Platform Podcast coming to you every week. Discussing everything on Google Cloud Platform from App Engine to Big Query.
I am a huge Google Cloud fan so I try to catch up on all of these episodes. I will admit if there is something (like networking) I will often skip, until it is an episode geared more towards development.
We talk with people who are shaping the future. A show about technology in business, research, and art.
Y Combinator always keeps me up on what is happening next with technology in business. Yes I do have a day job and I need to stay in touch with the heartbeat of our economy!
How I Built This with Guy Raz
How I Built This: Guy Raz dives into the stories behind some of the world's best known companies. How I Built This weaves a narrative journey about innovators, entrepreneurs and idealists—and the movements they built.
This is probably more for wanting to keep CodingCat.dev going, keeping anything as a side hustle takes work, so it helps to hear others story!
