If you are looking for a way to inject some knowledge in your day without interrupting your schedule, you might consider listening to podcasts during your commute or at the gym. Check out these podcasts we have rounded up for our Project Managers, Data Scientists, and Web Developers.

The Sensible Project Manager

Whether you’re a seasoned Project Manager trying to up your game or you are just starting out, this podcast by certified SCRUM Master and Project Management expert, Mark Phillipy, will surely teach you something you don’t know and help you to perfect those things you already do.  In episode 20, Mark and  Joseph Flahiff, author of Being Agile in a Waterfall World discuss agile and the environmental circumstances that hinder a team’s ability to be agile versus waterfall. Phillipy observes,”One of the challenges is the education of the waterfall teams on what the agile words are – things like iterations, sprints, and the things that become normal nomenclature in the agile world that are completely foreign to a waterfall team,” and asks Flahiff how to break the language barrier. If you are interested in Flahiff’s answer, check out the podcast, it’s free!

Programming Throwdown

Patrick Wheeler and Jason Gauci discuss a different programming language in each episode of this podcast, offering tips and personal experiences that even the novice programmer can enjoy.  At the start of the Ruby episode, they answer questions from listeners asked after the previous episode. They answered one question regarding how coding is different in school than in the industry by stating in the industry you end up coding defensively. If you’re working in the industry, your code has to be peer reviewed before it is committed so it has been read more times than it has been written. If you are interested in learning the other ways coding in school differs from coding in the real world, check out Episode 5, Ruby.
