Podcasts are one of the best ways to be updated on the latest tech developments. Discover the 6 suggestions we selected for software engineers to follow in 2022.



Technology probably evolves faster than any other field, so it’s easy to lose track if you’re away for too long. Business leaders are not the only ones who need to stay updated on industry developments – every tech professional should be informed about current happenings within the industry.

A podcast, as you might know, is an audio programme. Something very similar to the old talk radio shows. Podcasts are usually available as series and users can listen to them whenever and wherever they’d like to – which wasn’t true for radio shows.

But what about the content? Well, that’s the secret: there are millions of podcasts about every subject, including technology and engineering, of course. And within the technology field, you’ll probably have tons of podcasts for every niche of your interest. However, we – in close collaboration with the e.near Family – choose 6 great podcasts for software developers to follow in 2022.

In our final selection, we have generic tech podcasts but also a few niche ones that we found really appealing. Keep in mind that all of them were chosen by members of the e.near family so they’re in no way publicity content. Come discover all of them, why we think each one is great and why you should follow it.

Filipe Deschamps 


  • Frequency: Every two weeks
  • Main Theme: Computer Programming
  • Hosts: Filipe Deschamps

Differently from the other suggestions, we have this one given to us by João Ramalho, Team Leader: Filipe Deschamps’s YouTube Channel videos. We know it doesn’t completely fill the “podcast” term as these are videos and don’t have a real “series” outcome. But the content is very interesting and you can still listen to it whenever and wherever you wish.

  • Why is it great and you should listen to it?

This is a great podcast for every software developer who wants to be updated about what’s new in the web development field. Especially for those who are Portuguese speakers, as Filipe Deschamps’s contents are originally spoken in Portuguese. “You should listen to it if you are interested in weird bugs, cyber security, new frameworks and any new developments in the world of web dev.” João Ramalho

  • Perfect if you’re looking for….

“A very light way for staying up to date in the area. The videos are not technical at all so anyone with any level of knowledge can understand them. They are also in Brazilian Portuguese which is a very rare thing.”

These are the 6 podcasts we chose, but many others could be part of this list. We decided to pick these as they are focused on 6 important topics: Computer Programming, JavaScript, Website building, Startup life and blockchain technology. 

Some of these are more focused on giving you news and updates while others present you with technical content and advice. But all of them are worth the time – perfect to listen to during your commute or lunchtime. 

As software developers, we always have to be updated on not one but many fields at the same time. Being engaged with content like Podcasts is extremely important as with it we become part of a community of active listeners and we really grow within it. As an employer company, we can say that it is great to have engaged professionals, who are eager to learn more, working with us.
