This week Tom and Ed introduce A Question of Code, a new podcast answering the common questions that come up when learning to code. Ed’s a newbie coder who’s only been learning to code for a year and Tom’s a more seasoned developer having worked in the industry for a few years. They discuss how and why they got drawn into a career in programming and each explain what’s kept them there (or almost there in Ed’s case).

What is A Question of Code?
A newbie coder and a seasoned veteran discuss the questions that always come up when someone begins learning to code.
Ed is looking at getting a career in programming and has been learning to code for just over a year. During this time he’s been building up a stack of questions that keep coming up from other newbie coders. Luckily, he’s got someone he can ask for help: Tom. Tom’s a seasoned coder, having worked in the industry for a few years now and has all the answers Ed needs, or does he?
