How to develop and maintain a motivated attitude toward learning in Tech

July 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm


Interested in learning what makes a successful software developer? Want to hone your skills and advance your career? Whether you’re at the beginning of your coding journey or have some experience, join us at Ada Technical Books and Cafe for a panel discussion (and yummy snacks!) with 4 talented software developers right here in Seattle for tips on how to develop and maintain a motivated attitude towards learning throughout your career.

With the ever-evolving technology landscape of the 21st century, never has it been more important to stay apprised and up-to-date with the latest technologies and industry standards – luckily, you don’t have to go it alone. Our panel will speak to their own experience as software developers, what they’ve learned about learning, and how to stay hungry for new knowledge in a demanding industry where not only being willing to learn but knowing HOW to learn, is at a premium. They’ll also talk about how, when, and where to get help when you’re stuck from trained and vetted software developers as well as their own experience teaching others to code and prepare for their dream job in tech.
