The members of the Truss engineering team came to coding in many different ways. In this hour-long episode of Miss Tech, Truss engineer Emily Chen describes her own journey, from an early fascination with computers to lucking into a great QA position to attending a coding bootcamp in Barcelona.
She also talks about effective office culture, pivotal moments in professional development, and one business opportunity she wishes she'd better seized. (Anime hats. It's anime hats.) A worthwhile listen for aspiring programmers, programmers who want to better understand why their nontraditional background is an asset, and anyone who enjoys hearing someone talk about why they love what they do.
