Keeping pace with all the developments in the web industry requires some serious effort. Whether you are a front or back end developer or designer, or just someone who likes Web Development, things are moving so fast that staying updated requires a significant investment of time and effort.

That why podcasts are here to rescue you

Podcasts are a great way of getting the latest in web development without a huge time commitment. The good thing about podcasts is that you can listen to a podcast while you are on your morning run, driving to work or simply relaxing at the end of the day.

The Challenge of Choice

The number of podcasts based on Web Development can become a blocker for many people. There are just too many high-quality podcasts to choose from and selecting the right podcast to suit you, and the topic you want to listen to is often a reason why many often shy away from podcasts.

To help you get over this issue, I have compiled a list of some of my favourites to share. I have tried to keep the podcast list to a reasonable number so that as you go through the list, you can try out the podcasts that catch your eye and decide if you wish to return for more or if you have a podcast that isn’t on the list please leave a comment below.
