Success On Your Own Terms

Are you trapped in the monotonous cycle of completing JIRA tickets, thinking the only way up is management? Let me show you another way. I’ve been a codemonkey, I’ve worked in the cubical mazes of bigcorp, but I got out. It was the scariest thing I ever did—and it totally changed my life.


Consider this session your roadmap. We'll explore freelancing, consulting, and starting software businesses. You'll see the potential roadblocks and how to navigate them. You’ll be empowered with the confidence to venture outside your comfort zone. Are you ready to define your own success? The time is now.
