I spent 10 years working in gas stations, liquor stores and small retail. Never knew the path to tech was possible until a Rapper changed my life.
In this talk I will discuss my journey, going from frying chicken to helping 44 people land their first jobs in tech. To helping bring positive change to my city and to becoming a software engineer.
