A Tale of Two Bundles: A Lesson in Mentorship
I will be speaking about my journey of breaking into tech as a queer Latinx woman, with a non-traditional background. My path into tech was very challenging: there were many times I was very frustrated and disillusioned with the tech industry. A large part of why I believe I was able to successfully break through the elite gatekeeping that is technical interviewing was because of my wonderful mentors in the package manager space. Mentorship has had an exponentially positive effect on my career, technical abilities, and feeling of self worth.
