Event: The road to code

May 24, 2016 — I’ll be joining a discussion and friendly debate about software development, hosted by General Assembly at The Nerdery’s Chicago office.


The Road to Code is an event placing developers who work with different languages and technologies on a panel to discuss the prominent platforms of 2016. What’s the direction of web and mobile development today, and what should new developers look toward as they grow their careers?

I look forward to taking part on the panel and speaking about JavaScript and front-end web development.

Interested in attending?

This event will be hosted by General Assembly at The Nerdery (1033 W Van Buren, Suite 700) on May 24, 2016.
