I just gave a talk to LMUCS’s Class of 2016 in CMSI 401 titled A Day in the Life, talking about what I like to work on, where I work and how I got a job using the skills I acquired from LMU.
- Node.js - nodejs.com
- Hapi.js - hapijs.com
- Express.js expressjs.com
- Koa.js - koajs.com
- Cracking the Coding Interview
- Introduction to Algorithms, 2nd Edition
To those who heard this talk: I originally planned an awesome Node.js API talk, but instead of cramming your brains any more full than they are I wanted to provide you all with some practical advice in the hunt for a job. In addition, I want to encourage you all to get outside your comfort zone, contribute to open-source and realize how awesome we have it as software engineers today.
Thanks for having me, and I wish you all the best in your studies and job search in the upcoming semester!
PS. Check out Philosophie’s website, I love this company and it would be awesome to work with you guys!
