This week we’re joined by Zach Gibb, a Software Engineer at Hoard, for a conversation about how he transformed from having no interest in computers to using them every day to creatively solve problems.

While we certainly learn a lot about what programming is, and how someone might get started building websites, we also talk about other communication skills that make someone great at working with others.

Show Notes

  • What did Zach do to get started?
  • How do you even build a website?
  • Imposter Syndrome: a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud"
  • Getting past your fear by breaking down big problems into small ones
  • Personality traits that might help you with software engineering
  • Overcoming anxiety and how it relates to writing software
