Thanks to you, Coding Blocks has exceeded 1 million podcast *downloads!
When we started this podcast 3 years ago, we settled on a realistic goal of 100 downloads a month. We ended up doing a little better that first month, but we certainly didn’t expect to cross the million download mark, and we couldn’t have even begun to imagine all of the amazing people that we have met along the way.
We are looking forward to a new year full of surprises, but first we wanted to take a few minutes to celebrate a few numbers:
* 50+ episodes
* 1,000,000+ downloads
* 500+ 5 Star Reviews
* 5,000+ slack messages / week
Of those numbers, the one that excites us most is the last. The slack channel has become a place for developers of all backgrounds and experience levels to exchange ideas, help, and horror stories. We’re very proud to be members of such a cool community, and we thank you for hangin’ with us!
* Note: We pulled the download numbers from our feed hosting provider, Libsyn which attempts to de-dupe and de-bot numbers…but there’s still the very real possibility that 99% of the downloads were just us checking to see if it “worked on my machine”.
