There’s no denying that engineers are in high demand. Bootcamps are popping up everywhere, and while they’re churning out highly motivated juniors, often it’s seniors that companies are really after. So how do we bridge this gap together? On the surface it often looks like we’ve ‘naturally’ developed into our current roles. And, as we progress it’s incredibly easy to forget what it was like being new. Rest assured however, for most the journey has been filled with a whole lot of grit, determination, and discipline.

Over the past three years I’ve gone from a former professional figure skater teaching myself some basic HTML, to a full stack JavaScript developer, helping build out platforms for companies like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and now Warner Brothers.

In this talk, we’ll discuss lessons learned one year after going from a bootcamp grad to a full time JavaScript developer. Not only will I cover advice for newer developers, but I’ll also uncover what you can do if you’re a more advanced developer who works with newer developers. Plan to walk away empowered, and with renewed passion for the incredible industry we’re all a part of!

Stay tuned!
