Ep. 58 – From Journalist to Developer (Amy Simmons)



Amy Simmons spent six years working as a journalist at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the BBC of Australia. As an online journalism, she thought it was a good idea to learn how to code and use that to tell her stories in a new way. So with ABC’s support, she enrolled in a bootcamp, only to find out half way through that she no longer wanted to do journalism at all. Amy tells us how she made the leap into full-time developer and how she found her job as a .NET and C# programmer.

Ep. 56 – From Temp to Head of Design (Julie Ann Horvath)

Julie Ann Horvath opens up about her humble beginnings, what she learned from her controversial exit at Github last year, and the role she plays as an advocate for a more inclusive tech industry.
