Aug 5, 2017 | Reading time: 1 mins
If you are brand new to the tech industry and are wondering how to get started, or transitioning into tech from a different career, this talk is for you!
I recently reinvented my career from the ground up and went from marketing to software engineering in the course of a year. In a short period of time, I tried everything from self-teaching, to remote self-paced classes, and ultimately a coding bootcamp.
I will cover the following topics based on my whirlwind transition year:
- Is tech right for you?
- What is a growth mindset and why do you need it?
- Determining how you learn best
- Picking a learning regime
- How to get your first dev job
