How To Become a Developer - Advice From 3 VPs of Engineering

I initially invited 3 VPs of Engineering on to talk about how to improve software engineer retention on teams. Ultimately, they ended up sharing great advice for developers wanting to grow. We also dove into hot topics like the pros and cons of white board interviews; WFH policies during COVID-19; and requests for salary raises. I really think this was a great podcast episode that has tons of useful advice for developers trying to grow. Let me know what you think!

Over a year ago, I created a brand new company (DONTHEDEVELOPER LLC) with a very ambitious goal. By the end of this year (2021), my goal is for my business, that helps junior developers get unstuck and get that first position, to become self-sustainable and allow me to do this full-time. If my content has helped you in any way and you'd like to help support me with this goal or get more involved with our community, please consider taking a look at some of the links below. Thank you so much to everyone who's believed in me and has helped support this venture. You're turning my dream into a reality!
