Saron has a great way of getting people to tell their stories. Sometimes the stories are inspirational; sometimes they are super practical - but they are always valuable.

I love this podcast and Code Newbie

Saron Yitbarek presents a very professional & welcoming podcast for total newbies such as myself. Her closing questions for her fascinating guests yield gold and presents an overall insightful interview. I’m addicted! Kudos and thank you for your work, Saron!

Charismatic host, professional sound, inspiring stories from talented guests who are standing out in the industry, mindful edition…Not many podcasts out there with this format.

I tracked Saron down after listening to the “Command Line Heroes” podcast. I enjoy “Code Newbies” even though I’m an old lady of tech I found value hearing younger women’s experiences.

Very valuable hour I’ve spent while attending a boot camp and studying for six months. Listen up, another feather for your cap.

I love the podcast.. mmmm… but the mmms are driving me nuts lol…. Mmmmm
RiverMontoya via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/18/22
Honest review: Pros: Great topics from different tech careers and different prospectives Cons: Fake, insincere sounding host; the guests often have (advanced) degrees/years of experience/ jobs which code newbies will never be able to obtain (at least not for a while); too many ads
Darnell813 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/22
My first download was the episode with Leon Noel #100Devs. He’s been instructing me since Jan 2022 and he’s a phenomenal teacher. This podcast has great topics and content for developers.
Spottedgurl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/22
I’ve been coding off and on since 2016 but was not getting anywhere. Kept giving up because I wasn’t learning what I needed to learn to grow. Because of this podcast and some good videos I’m finally starting to make really good progress. Like many new developers I thought I had to know everything...Read full review »

I’ve tried out quite a few coding podcasts, as a newbie. Most of them were either way over my head or not pinpointed enough on the topics interested in knowing more about. Each episode on CodeNewbie focuses on one topic, sticks to the point, and actually speaks the language of a newbie.
Lauren1850 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/21
Helped me a lot, and now I code daily

I'm so taken with this podcast. I've been starting to flex my coding muscles in the GIS work that I do, and it's so helpful to have the topics I'm interested in addressed in a way that's accessible, inclusive, and well produced.Read full review »

Guy said nothing. Just gave a bunch of motivational quotes and buzz words and talked about himself.

I don’t know 3/4 of what they’re talking about.

I’m so glad to have found your channel, being a newbie, it’s nice having such encouragement. I’ve saved a lot from the onset in which I can’t wait to listen to all 💗
Wendycodes via Apple Podcasts · Nigeria · 06/24/20
Same complaint as many of the negative reviewers: Pros: good guests, good content Cons: too many ads mid-interview (too many, period) that distract from otherwise good content; there have been other interviews (from different guests) that have been sprinkled in the middle of interviews
Dr. Tuitupou via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/20
Pro’s: interesting content, quality guests, good questions Con’s: massive amounts of ads, phony laughs and condescending tone of host

Gavatron 😋 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/03/20
I started my coding journey mid-September. About 2 weeks ago, I discovered this podcast. It has really made me feel like I can become a developer because it sounds like a lot of experience devs have also faced the same problems as me. As well as that, there are some really nice resources shared...Read full review »

Fell in love with the very first episode I heard! Really motivated me to learn how to code!
Sunkist:-) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/19
This podcast covers a lot of really interesting topics and features a lot of really knowledgeable guests, but the hostess is pretty dry and uninteresting. She seems to go off of prepared questions in a formulaic way, which results in her coming across as lacking in personality.
Snarkystag via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/21/19
Saron is an absolutely amazing host! The guests are incredible, diverse, and inclusive of all. The huge focus on POC, LGBTQ, and women, makes this podcast a light in a very narrow industry. I had tried finding coding/programming podcasts a while back, but could only find male hosts interviewing...Read full review »

J. Barshop via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/19
The content is pretty good, and I think the value proposition is noble to help new devs. But the content keeps getting interrupted by TONS of ads and pushing a sister podcast. First I thought all the ads were consolidated at the beginning of the podcast, but no, there are ads throughout the...Read full review »

High production value, thoughtful interview/conversation, positive/optimistic POV, just what I need to motivate my career change and engage my brain in tech!

I love CodeNewbie - I think that the interviews are interesting and in some cases, even inspiring. Also, the audio and editing is top-notch.
rebitzele via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/19
I’m a newbie programmer and I just hit on this podcast. After a massive binge I have a queue 20 episodes to go through and still growing! Great production values, engaging host and informative topics. I can’t recommend Code Newbie enough for ... well ... code newbies!
SuperFly909 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/14/19
Thank you for this podcast. I am a beginner, teaching myself, and the information on here is precious.
Bobbi Tangobug via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/10/19
The host does a pretty good job and the content is engaging with guests typically worth listening to. My issue with this podcast comes down the the pre recorded advertisements that she plays every episode and the absolutely awful intro music that instantly makes my day worse as soon as i hear it....Read full review »
BBLOX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/19
Meh. The host is very fake sounding. Laughs like a robot. Changes subject quickly. Answers “yeah ok” and moves on no help between subjects. Has this weird overly calculated sultry uptick affect. Yikes. I have to assume someone told her it’s an ok radio voice at some point. I’m sure she’s...Read full review »

The journey of learning programming can be fun and exciting, but it can also can be tough for many of us, depending on the circumstances and stage of ones life.

The host constantly adds to the podcast with “yeah”, “mmhmm”, “ok”, “wow”, and other distractions while her guests speak. I get it, she trying to show engagement with her guests, but it comes across insincere and fake. Then I heard her laugh.... her obviously phony laugh. Again, it is insincere...Read full review »

Just wanted to say I love the content and the delivery of this pod.

But this pod has given me the kick I needed to start my journey!...Read full review »
