Anyone ever give you advice on how to remain a programmer? To avoid being “promoted” into positions away from technology and code? Anyone ever tell you at school or university that you needed social skills to be a good developer? Did you know, without having had half a dozen different jobs, that all development roles are not created equal? Is it true that moving jobs a lot is a Bad Thing?
In this session, Trisha is going to share some lessons she learnt the hard way while managing her career as a Java developer. She's going to tell you secrets that others don’t want to share. And she’ll give you tools for working out what your next steps are.
If nothing else, you’ll get to laugh at the (many) mistakes Trisha made in her search for The Perfect Job.
