In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Luis Gonzalez about how he went from learning iOS Development on his own for about 2 years to landing his first job. I loved his story because it really speaks to the power of networking. Be sure to stick around for when Luis tells the story about driving 4+ hours from Fresno, CA to attend coffee meetups which eventually led to his first job.
Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.
