Hey @chrismis79 it was great to listen to your episode! I've spent about 10 years in my industry and have been slowly transitioning to programming. Hoping to do a bootcamp in 2022 or early 2023 when I return to the US.

When you were reaching out and connecting with folks on LinkedIn at the beginning of your time in bootcamp, how were you going about it? I remember you saying you weren't asking for referrals. What would you say are the best ways to softly network without being too sales-ey? (Former sales rep so that's my default on LinkedIn unfortunately)
