What is Success as a Software Engineer? - Michael Chen

Why do we do what we do? For some, it's the financial motivation. For others, it's the recognition and social status. Mike's journey to software development is unique, but what's more compelling is figuring out the why behind the decisions he's made. Join me in my conversation with Mike Chen, who shares his early days before coding existed, his motivation in climbing the corporate ladder, and giving that up to work on something more meaningful to him.

On today's show, we talk about how Mike Chen went from a Research Associate, quit that path, learned Java programming through books, and eventually became a CTO in the Bay Area.
