YayQuery (my new favourite podcast)

A new exciting podcast I have just discovered all about jQuery

This week I found out about a new podcast on the scene called YayQuery. As you can imagine it is a discussion on jQuery, it is hosted by four experts in the field and seems to be producing fairly regular podcasts.

YayQuery

It rules for a couple of reasons

  • It it is such a laid back discussion from people who genuinely love jQuery.  A lot of tech podcasts are very dry, and just hard to listen to.
  • It mixes beginner and advanced levels of discussion excellently.  As someone who is just above beginner not nowhere near advanced with JavaScript I have found nothing too under or over whelming.
  • It lets you download it as a vodcast as well as a podcast.
  • The source code on their site is AWESOME. (seriously, check it out)

At the time of writing they are on episode[3], plenty of time to play catch up!

2016 Note

Unfortunately we only got 22 episodes of YayQuery goodness before the podcast shut up shop.

If you’re interested in podcasts I can highly recommend The Tim Ferriss Show. It isn’t anything like YayQuery, but is still excellent.

If you want to hear yours truly on a podcast, I appeared on The CTO show for one episode.
