Marketing Coordinator @ Suncoast Developers Guild

Senior developers from the Suncoast Developers Guild team have curated a list of podcasts, books, websites, and even games that they recommend for learning and staying up to date with the latest in programming. This makes you relevant in the job market, productive, and the beauty of being in the development world is that you're a forever student.

So many of our students come to us and say they're looking to switch careers because they feel stagnant at their current job. They feel like they've hit a ceiling and there's nothing else to learn and nowhere else to advance. Fortunately, as time goes on so do technological advancements. To keep up as a developer, you have to be consistently learning and practicing.
