    S4:E4 From Community College to Twitch Feat. Gabriella Uwadiegwu

    Gabriella's computer science studies began at a community college. Eventually, she transferred to a 4-year university, yet found course work intensity to be similar. The challenge had served her beneficially, which allowed her to secure employment upon graduation. In this interview, she advises listeners to view collegiate knowledge as a necessary foundation for life-long learning as a professional developer. Please take a look at her DevCon Replay HERE.

    In April of 2020, The Next Steps team was motivated to help individuals who are pursuing careers in engineering, technology, and entrepreneurship, but found themselves paralyzed by the COVID19 Pandemic. Like so many of us, these individuals found themselves unsure about what are the Next Steps. We put together DevCon, a virtual conference where we focused on three areas: how to get started, how to level up in your career, and shed light on entrepreneurship for engineers. The Conference was sponsored by Wallet Clicks, the digital business card company.
