Favorite Pieces on the Blog
- My favorite piece was with Jeren Nomer, who was in tech recruiting and now runs career services at Fullstack Academy. She talks a lot about the mistakes made by coding bootcampers that she interviewed as a recruiter and how to correct for those.
- I really enjoyed speaking with Shane, an alum from The Iron Yard. Since he graduated he has created his own music app, worked for a music app company, and now leads a mobile dev team at Bridgestone!
