I'm Matt Van Itallie — the founder and CEO of Sema Software. I'm proud that Sema is a sponsor of CodeLand this year and I'm excited to connect over our shared love of coding.
If you haven't heard of us before, Sema is a software company obsessed with code quality and helping developers grow their skills and advance their careers.
We have a free code review assistant/developer portfolio tool now available for GitHub. You can find it here
I'm thrilled to be giving a Lighting Talk at CodeLand 2022 on creating a "brag book" — also known as an accomplishment journal.
I hope you'll tune in and then consider creating a brag book for yourself! I truly believe they can equip early-career software developers to reflect on and explain what they've learned and what they've achieved at work or in school. This process can be as important for career advancement and personal growth as carrying out the work itself!
You can learn more about how to create a brag book and find free Google doc templates here
I'd love to hear from you. Reply in the comments with questions or examples about building your own Accomplishment Journal.
We're hosting a Developer Portfolio competition this summer with prizes from our sweet merch store. Sign up here if you'd like to be informed of this contest and participate.
All of us at Sema are wishing you a great experience at CodeLand this year. 🌈
