The world of computer programming is vast in scope. There are literally thousands of topics to cover and no one person could ever reach them all. One of the goals of the Coding Blocks podcast is to introduce a number of these topics to the audience so they can learn during their commute or while cutting the grass. We will cover topics such as best programming practices, design patterns, coding for performance, object oriented coding, database design and implementation, tips, tricks and a whole lot of other things. You’ll be exposed to broad areas of information as well as deep dives into the guts of a programming language. While Microsoft.NET is the development platform we’re using, most topics discussed are relevant in any number of Object Oriented programming languages. We are all web and database programmers and will be providing useful information on a full spectrum of technologies and are open to any suggestions anyone might have for a topic. So please join us, subscribe, and invite your computer programming friends to come along for the ride.

Hosted by Allen Underwood, Joe Zack and Michael Outlaw


Allen has been a professional programmer who began his life of coding at the ripe age of 14 when he began writing code to do his math homework on the handheld TRS-80 (in Basic) given to him by his uncle. Professionally he has specialized in web specific programming for 15 years creating solutions for Fortune 100 companies. Allen is proficient in database design and performance tuning and has specialized in developing robust user interfaces using the latest Javascript and web technologies. In his “spare” time, he loves to spend time with his wife, twins and chihuahuas. As well as being a programmer, husband and father, he also dabbles in video production, runs a headphone review site, plays basketball when he can, and likes to be humbled by the younger generation in matches of the latest Call of Duty games.



Joe is a Software Developer based in the Atlanta area. If it weren’t for ticketing systems he would gladly refactor himself in circles all day long.

These days Joe is excited about C#, Go, and Amazon Web Services.

When he is not basking in the glow of a monitor you can find him peddling, paddling, or annoying his wife through interpretive dance.



Michael Outlaw is a devoted father, loving husband, loyal friend, and continuously evolving software developer based out of Atlanta, GA. A fan of gadgets and all things technology, Michael, a perpetual class clown, has often joked that if a power source isn’t involved he probably isn’t interested. A father of two boys, Michael often spends his free time with his boys building with LEGOs, losing badly to them on Halo, and racing radio controlled cars with them at area race tracks.
