Breaking into Tech: From the Trenches
Bottom Line: Grit is required from historically underrepresented groups to change the demographic of Software Engineers and Developers. This talk will share my personal obstacles from a non-traditional career path (Veteran, women of color, mother and coding bootcamp graduate) to a Software Engineer.
The intent is to encourage passionate developers who are members of historically underrepresented groups, but not limited to new developers from non-tech industries, developers starting second careers, re-entering the workforce, and those who have attended coding bootcamps, to build and support a community in Open Source.
