Getting into Software Development is challenging and daunting at the best of times. However, with the rise of coronavirus and companies working remotely getting into technology is more challenging than it’s ever been.
I’m a big advocate of paying it forward, so many people have invested in me over the course of my career and I’ve been looking for ways to help people hoping to move into the field of software engineering today.
Throughout the start of 2021 I’ve been running a series of blog posts to help inspire and prepare graduates and aspiring software engineers for what they will face during the recruitment process and those first few weeks in their job. These are published every Thursday and are my humble effort to help the next generation of talented engineers.
