Software Engineering Radio has been named a top resource by a wide range of sites, and the team works hard to make the show valuable for working software developers:






2018 and Before



“The coolest thing about Software Engineering Radio and what ultimately makes it such a great resource are the subjects and the people they interview … Another thing I would like to mention is the format of the episodes. They are interviews and the team at SE Radio go to great lengths to prepare and ask just the right questions to illuminate the topic at completely and extract pearls of wisdom from the people they interview. I think this format is better than a speech or a presentation because of the interaction between the interviewer and the interviewed.”


Stories behind the products you love
Because it is the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) that produces Software Engineering radio, you can expect quality content aimed at professional developers. Episode 285, with James Cowling from DropBox, is a standout, an ideal way to learn how to build large-scale distributed systems from a company that has a proven track record in doing so.
