How To Engineer Your Tech Career

How do you take a tech education and turn that into a tech career? Software development skills alone won't do it. We’ll discuss how anyone from CS majors to code school grads to self-taught folks can network, find mentors and grow their careers. We will share our personal stories along with proven strategies to finding mentors, building a resume, networking with others in the industry, and becoming a better technologist. And we’re not just saying this — we’ve done it ourselves and want to share with everyone else!
