Web design podcasts are a great place to learn resources as a web developer. One of my favorite shows, and one that I’ve listen to almost every single episode, his shop talk show. Chocolate show features Chris choir and Dave Rupert two of the top web developers in the web development industry.

They share some of their insight and knowledge, on what they do to create such beautiful works of  art, in this case websites. On most episodes, they have a guest from the industry who explains their expertise and way of doing things. I’ve learned so much knowledge about development through  this web design podcast, and highly recommend it to anyone learning web design. Obviously much of the content will be over-the-head of any beginning web developer, but that’s ok, just soak up the nerdy goodness and overtime it will become easy to decipher the meaning of the dialogue.

Even just the way the website itself shoptalkshow.com is designed is impressive. It’s extremely clean,  and I think all podcasts should follow the similar format. The shows are the first thing that you see when you land on the homepage. And I clicking into the show you get a download file in a play file and who is on the show. It’s very simple and straightforward.

Attached at the bottom of this article, I have put a zip file of several of shoptalk show web design podcast episodes for you to download and unzip. This can be put onto your USB and put into your car, or played in the background while you do your web development.

I find it very inspirational and helps me to get a lot done while also learning. Check out Shop Talk Show (shoptalkshow.com) today!

Jophiel grew up on a ranch in Paradise Valley, Montana near Chico Hot Springs. Working on the ranch instilled work ethic and self motivation. Filled with this drive, Jophiel started mowing the local school's yards twice a month throughout the summers, at the age of 12. He moved to Billings in 2004, where he has been deeply involved in the local business community ever since. A serial entrepreneur, Jophiel has ran multiple businesses in our local community. The first business, a janitorial and carpet cleaning company, founded in 2005, has employed over 50 locals. Moving on to the media industry, Jophiel and several partners founded Green Directory Montana in the spring of 2007. Green Directory's sustainability ranking software awarded points based on sustainable or "green" actions. These points counted towards a business's total "Green Score," which in turn ranked them against other businesses in their category and throughout the entire site. It also featured a limited edition print version distributed annually. A business acquisition allowed Jophiel to focus on new projects, and a few close business colleagues and Jophiel started Rocky Mountain Mr. & Ms. Magazine, a lifestyle publication for men and women in the Magic City. After a year and a half at the helm of RM3 Magazine, the business was purchased. He now runs a web development company SkyPoint Studios and fathers his son Jaoquin, who plays football, basketball, soccer, and is learning snowboarding from his dad. Recently, has expanded to locations in Havasu, Arizona & Vegas. SkyPoint Studios is a market leader in both Billings & Havasu and Jophiel is working on building that same level of market dominance in Vegas.
