Esther and I met back at WindyCity Rails in Chicago. She was one of the speakers, I was one of the organizers/MC. After hearing her talk, I knew I had to interview her for SheNomads. Her appreciation for non-traditional paths in tech and talent as a speaker made me think she'd be a great fit for the podcast.
I was right!
Esther and I linked up again in New York a few months later. I was in New York on a workcation (if you're curious about those, here is a post and another interview for you), and she was mentoring a new batch of students at DBC. I got to go to their Wall Street location, see what the students were working on, and talk to them about remote work, and finding remote jobs.
All that to say: Esther knows what she's talking about when it comes to Bootcamps. Being both a college grad and a bootcamper gives her an interesting perspective.
So take a listen!
