Join General Assembly and our tenured Software Engineers for an Ask Me Anything! This conversation will range from topics including apps, web pages, the job market, the skills companies look for in a hire, and the resources to get you started.
Bring your questions for our Software Engineers. They will give you a glimpse into the role, help you understand what is needed to get there, and, just maybe, inspire you to make a change! Whether you are looking to change careers, skill-up, or just understand the importance of this field, come out to mingle and hear from our expert.
Kaylee transitioned to a career in software development after studying Literature at American University and working in customer experience at a food-tech startup. She attended Skill Distillery, a Denver-based bootcamp, in 2016. She then worked as a software engineer in the telecommunications industry before becoming a technical consultant. She's now the CEO of ChattyKathi.com, a digital platform that strengthens belonging within communities by facilitating fun and insightful conversations amongst small groups.
Angie Davidson has always loved puzzles of all sorts including logic and jigsaw puzzles. She has a background in physics and after a decade of teaching middle - college level decided to change careers into software development. Angie completed a 13 week bootcamp in late 2020 and now works at VMware. Angie can often be heard saying this was the best way to spend her COVID year.
Five months after starting at Ibotta, Bill was laid off on April 7, 2020, due to the economic effects of COVID-19. His second kid was born twelve days later in the midst of the pandemic - it was a stressful time, but everything worked out in the end. In June, 2020, he started a new role as a Software Engineer I at Livongo, a health-tech company that was later acquired by Teladoc. After a year there and a promotion, Bill recently moved on to a new role as a Software Engineer II at Guild Education on October 27, 2021.
Bill works chiefly with Typescript and front-end frameworks like React and Vue, but he is interested in moving more toward the back-end over the next year or two. If he's not working he's probably reading a picture book to a toddler (1-year-old Victor or 3-year-old Nora), or washing dishes while listening to a podcast.
