So, you're coming to a dev career from a very different path in life — one that may not seem "connected" to the dev world...
In this talk, I will run through an exercise about discovering the superpowers of your non-dev work career, including how to identify your superpowers, talk about them, and use them to start and advance your career.
We're all competent in our tech stacks, but what makes us unique and awesome coworkers is the variety of experiences and skills we've picked up along the way. No matter what these skills are, there's a way to connect them to being a dev and working in tech.
