Technology Podcasts

In a tech startup, how do you get from an idea on the back of a napkin to a fully functioning product? Code Story is a podcast featuring tech leaders, reflecting the roads they travelled and the products they created. On the show, we interview tech visionaries, digging into the critical moments of what it takes to change an industry, and build (and lead) a team that has your back. Hosted by Noah Labhart, this show is a window into the digital startup world. In their own words, tech veterans share what it feels like to create a world class product, how to recover from critical mistakes, and how to scale your solution to the masses. Their tech. Their products. Their stories. This podcast is for the founder, tech leader, CTO, CEO, developer, software architect, startup leader, disruptive visionary - or the curious minded individual, who wants to know what a builder goes through in creating world changing technology.
