About this Episode

She started at the very beginning of her self-directed, non-traditional route to coding. She first had to learn to code. She worked, studied, and leaned on mentors and others until she reached the point of being hired for a full time job. What language did she tackle as that very first one? Elixir! We talked with Kimberly Johnson about how she did it. She shared her story at ElixirConf which we found inspiring. We wanted to go deeper on how she kept going when things got hard and how she built up a network of mentors and resources to help along the way. A great story and potential roadmap for others who want to follow a non-traditional path to a software development career!
