Developer Podcast Series 

Developers make the world go round. But the world is changing fast. From shifting demographics to higher expectations to new technologies, the only constant for today’s and tomorrow’s developers is change.

Decoded is a podcast that brings the voices of developers forward. 

Join us as we chat with developers about their personal stories, their insight into the world’s leading apps and products, and the trends that are continually shaping the lives and work of the global development community.
