Most episodes are not useful, with the occasional gem

by Dave J Smith on Mar 14, 2018
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I have really enjoyed some of the episodes, such as the CAP theorem from a few years ago, but most of the episodes are not useful for an experienced engineer because they stay at the introductory level for the topic. The interviewers often have zero experience with the topic, so their questions are not helpful. It’s common for an interviewer to spend 2/3 of the show stumbling through the background to try to understand what the topic is. This may be useful for brand new developers, but it’s frustrating for experienced developers who really want to learn about a topic from an expert. Even in the best episodes, the interviewers miss important questions. The show could be 10x better with some new interviewers who ask better questions, and think more critically rather than letting the show be a marketing platform for the guest.

With a deep, interesting backlog of shows that span technology and practices, I love SERadio's focus on practical topics for the "working engineer".

Too many “technical” podcasts shy away from the nitty gritty details. I’d say Robert Blumen is the best technical podcast host around.

Excellent Way to Convert Commute into Educuation

I'm a CS undergrad with on-off industry exposure. I am currently listening to this podcast from the beginning (I'm near episode 100) to expand my knowledge beyond CS fundamentals. The hosts are great and they find great guests. They are very company-agnostic, but many episodes discuss specific technologies making it very practical. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent resource for me, a software developer, to get a sense of what is happening on a broad range of issues that I would otherwise never hear about.This podcast is interviews with mostly professional developers and covers a fair amount on software design, development, and testing methodologies, as well as software technologies. As should be expected in a niche podcast, the interviews are not always smoothly edited and the interviewees are not professional speakers, so do not always speak clearly.

This podcast is not afraid to dive into technical details which makes it a very useful podcast. It isn't always the easiest to listen to while trying to do other things due to the high amount of content packed into each episode.They've done a great job in making a podcast that can help keep software engineers up to date and learning about new things. A task that we often forget neglect in our busy lives. Definately a podcast worth your time.Thank you for making such a good podcast!

Essential for all software engineers

Being an American, I found myself straining to understand the German accented English. After the first 2 episodes, either I got over it, or they sounded better, and I have been a fan since then. If you are a software engineer and need to know the ins and outs, the acronyms, and the explanations of today's software development technology, you need to subscribe to this podcast now.
