Event Details

Making a career switch can be a thrilling and, for many, a daunting task. Whether you’re just beginning to think about taking the leap or you're in the middle of the process, it's easy to get overwhelmed. How do you know when to leave your current role and how do you best position yourself for your next?

Patsy Price was in this position not long a go. She was a program manager at Google but was growing bored of her job. She wanted to learn how to code to build cool products she was actually passionate about. Patsy took the leap and quit Google after 8 years. She learned to code, and now works as a web developer for SmartZip. Patsy's story was featured in the following New York Times article.

In this intimate talk, Patsy will share with us her motivations, the challenges of transitioning, and how it feels to be a developer at SmartZip today.

Come join us and learn more about the path to making a career change into the exciting world of web development.
