If Codecademy were to release a podcast, what topics are you most interested in learning about and would like to see us cover?

Maybe the history of coding, history of the individual languages, etc? I’m sure we all want to know more about that, and it wouldn’t be as boring as listening to someone speak code the whole time

I’d love to learn more about the most innovative current uses of certain languages. Also maybe stories of some Codecademy users and their careers.

I love to know about career path of each language.

What is the potential project we can do with each language.

Then, tips and tricks about programming.

Time management how many hours practice to code to become better.

And some of motivational maybe?

Thank you!

I think that it would be nice to have interventions of Codecademy alumni from different career paths who actually landed a job after following one of those paths and also some people who actually studied CS/Software Engineering, and have them discuss about the differences, challenges, struggles but also perks of following the conventional way of learning(college degrees) coding and also other alternatives/platforms such as Codecademy. It might be very interesting I believe.

I would love to know about the different career paths to take as a Dev. Like working in house or for an agency or for a start-up and how each role differs and how career progression looks like in each industry sector !

I’d be interested in listening to Object Oriented Programming concepts, as well as SOLID principles and how they would apply in real world situations. For exmple, thinking about a project or problem and explaining how the OOP thinking would be applied in the breakdown of the solution, as well as why it should be solved like that and alternative solutions.

Greetings, I believe something important would be to get some idea of how all these apply to a programmer IRL. Show us how junior or even senior programmers use coding in real life with concepts that even beginners can understand.
Also what are the things we can not learn by codecademy and how to practice on them.

I would love to see you guys explore how coding is being used around the world to make a positive change or explore the history of coding/programming languages.

I would love to hear about todays most used frameworks/languages, and where/why are they most used. Just to sort of understand how is the World around us applying the knowledge we have into projects.

And also any interesting facts, for example while on the Full Stack Course I saw that Opera was released like 1-2 years after Internet Explorer. Opera is actually older than Mozilla‘s Firefox … found that rather interesting and it made me explore the whole picture there was.

Cheers

I would like to hear about design patterns and the history of coding.
Interviews with people who contributed to shifts in how we approach programming would also be very interesting.

@lilybird I would say cool stories, how x code is being used in the industry or in new projects, learning tips.
Maybe some interviews with the experts in the field and their stories and some tips they might share with the listeners.

I would like to hear about specific topics like Git, the Command Line, and developers experience on how they got where they are now

Hi,

i love the Idea of an Codecademy Podcast. But I also have to acknowledge that talking code in an audio-based format might be tough. So, I really would love to hear a lot about the Meta on Coding and Programming.

  • History of Coding
  • Famous Programmers / Progammers / Milestones / Triva everyone in this industrie knows and refers to
  • Outlooks into the future
  • Interviews with Programmers with topics like “Think like a programmer”, clean code

Theres just so much into this topic …

Like a lot of other

I’d like to hear about ways to make yourself stand out when searching for jobs. For instance, how can your previous career experience be seen by recruiters as an asset rather than looking like you’re not specialized enough?

I like some of the ideas already about the history of coding/computer science, perhaps analysing how it fits into the modern world? Where do we go from here, etc.
And this is just my personal preference, but more on different paths and careers/applications for python etc or more along the lines of data science/analytics :slight_smile:

So well articulated—and exactly what we were thinking!
