Jess dazzles, DC impresses
I've listened to all (so far!) three of the podcasts and I'm hooked! Jess is a sizzling, scintilating conversationalist and she steers the conversation where few tech folks would. I'm a complete n00B in the tech world, but I'm trying to break in. Listening to these conversations is inspiring and elucidating -- laughing along is just an added bonus!
It's also really cool that she's looking into the unique opportunities and enclaves you'll only find in DC. Youngsters here get a bad rap for coming, working on the Hill (or wherever) for two years, and leaving. Jess is exposing tech communities that are planting roots and driving change right here in our nation's capital.
Ok, now off to Codecademy with me -- I want to continue getting my feet wet. Keep up the A+ content, Jess! :)
