  • Lauren loved chatting with DevMountain alum Sterling Chin about his transition from a facilities and vendor manager to a developer. Sterling told us how he wanted to provide for his wife and two young children, and how he overcame feelings of anxiety, depression, and imposter syndrome to land a job at a startup for three months after graduation, and then as a Front End Developer at Overstock.com the biggest tech company in Utah.

  • I really enjoyed interviewing Manisha Patel, a Hackbright grad who now works at Reddit! Her background was in fine arts, and she worked in project management at Apple, but was always fascinated by her coworkers who were engineers. She loved her experience at Hackbright, and now she’s working alongside other Hackbright grads at Reddit, a company which she says is committed to diversity and inclusion, and is actually partnering with Hackbright to offer a scholarship.

Liz Eggleston

  • Liz put together a great Guide to Swift, in collaboration with Andrew Madsen a Swift expert who is an instructor at Lambda School. The article covers the history of Swift, the debate between Swift vs Objective-C, what Swift is used for, and how to get started learning it.
