Telling A Story With Your Code
Telling A Story With Your Code

Just as writers have ink and paper, code plays an analogous role in a developers' "story". Programming is storytelling. As with all stories, there are drafts and revisions, parts that are easier to write than others, and just like with your favorite novel, a few small changes can make a huge impact on the ending. Latisha McNeel, a Full-Stack Developer at G2i is joining us for an hour of live Q&A to answer your questions about how you can develop your own story through code. During this chat, you'll also have the opportunity to learn all about the open roles at G2i, tips for your application, and what they are looking for in their next hire! You asked, she's answering: Can you give us an example of using code to tell a story? How can I improve my storytelling? What's the biggest roadblock you've faced as a developer? MEET THE SPEAKER: Latisha McNeel is a Full-Stack Developer with a focus on front-end and user experience. In addition to her full-time coding job, she teaches the Full-Stack Flex Coding Bootcamp at the University of Texas at Austin in Houston. She has two cats and enjoys hiking, with plans to complete her first thru-hike later this year.
