Podcast of the Week - Software Engineering Radio

We have in the past two weeks of March, shared with you the Technically Speaking and The Engineering Commons podcasts.
This week, we take it back to computers.

Software Engineering is defined as the study and an application of engineering to the design, development, and maintenance of software.

For professional software developers, there is need to learn from experts and others in the industry, as well as gain a better understanding of the vast world of code and computers. Thankfully, there is a podcast that offers just that - the Software Engineering Radio.

Popularly styled as SE-Radio, this podcast is produced one or twice every month. Thanks to the untiring efforts of volunteers and staff members at IEEE Software magazine, SE-Radio presents original content with at least two presenters in every episode.
The IEEE Software magazine is published by the IEEE Computer Society.

Spending endless hours at a computer workstation is mostly associated with hackers and other geeks who get thrilled by the amazing stuff computers can actually do. It is indeed true that such people are the ones who change the world. Software Engineering can at times seem like a larger than life engagement. But then again, it is most enjoyable to those who are passionate about code.
