We’re not saying that Michael is Carmen Sandiego. We’re just saying that nobody has ever seen them in a room together. And this week, we don’t know where in the world either are, as Allen and Joe continue the Domain Driven Design discussion without Michael. Nor Carmen.
Stitcher is back and so are we as Michael proves he doesn’t have a career as a rapper, Allen can’t type on his phone, and Joe tweets with famous authors as we continue our dive into Domain Driven Design talking about aggregate roots, factories, and repositories.
We’re back with another deep dive into the infamous book Clean Code by Uncle Bob as Joe alters columns, Michael misreads things, and Allen has a positive customer service experience.
When and why should you write unit tests, and just how important are they? Take a listen and see what YOU think.
Ever judged a book by its cover? Of course you have. Ever passed judgement on some code simply because it didn’t look pretty? There’s more to writing code than having it functional and in this episode we dive into the reasons code formatting actually matters. Who wins the newspaper format debate?! Leave us a comment and let us know! [Read more…]

I had the pleasure of receiving a promotional copy of Steve Smith’s course: ASP.NET Core Quick Start. I recently recommended his podcast Weekly Dev Tips as my tip of the “week” and all of us CB’ers heavily referenced his Pluralsight course on the SOLID principles in Episode 7. To say I was really excited to get my hands on the course is an understatement.
We take a deep dive into the various forms of duplication and jump aboard the complain train as Allen complains about Confluent’s documentation, Michael complains about Docker’s documentation, and Joe complains about

Coding Blocks is a podcast for programmers, by programmers. We try to balance software engineering best practices against pragmatism in order to bring you the best possible podcast for the real world. Also, we think we’re pretty funny! 😉
Alternatively, you can just search for “Coding Blocks” wherever podcasts are found.
Here are a couple links to some of our more popular topics, if you’d like to see more:
“It’s rare that a show or podcast manages to be both informative and entertaining. This is doubly true when the subject matter is both supremely technical and niche, so it’s all the more impressive that Coding Blocks manages to pull off this delicate balancing act with the degree of success that it does.
One major facet of Coding Blocks is its Slack community, which is worth a 5 star review all on its own.”
This is a podcast I found from a list on Free Code Camp. Being a self-taught programmer, this is a great way to get a look at the tools, and the issues, that may come up in the work world. I started on the “Clean Code” series, and my impression was “Where is this information in all of the classes?!” They do an excellent job of presenting not only to experienced developers, but to those of us starting out, as well.
Coding Blocks provides the perfect blend of information and humor. Where other podcasts are either too dull and boring, sounding like a college lecture, or are too light and fluffy, sounding like the tech version of Entertainment Tonight, Coding Blocks is that rare podcast that balances the education with the entertainment and delivers on all aspects.
These guys are smart and love what they do, and it shows. They have a way of taking complicated topics and breaking them down into easily understood bits. I feel like I learn something new with each episode. If you are a software developer looking to improve your craft, give this podcast a try. You won’t regret it.
