Three years ago, Scott broke back into the software industry after spending twenty years on a different career path. His skills in COBOL were no longer sufficient, so he attended The Tech Academy Software Developer Boot Camp to sharpen up on the most in-demand programming languages.
In this talk, Scott shares the ups and downs of learning new technologies after deciding to change his career path, the struggles of finding a job, and his experience working at a new company with younger but more experienced coders.
After overcoming numerous obstacles, Scott Jansen now finds himself in a great career as a software developer. We're excited to have him back sharing the lessons he's learned along the way. Lessons not only helpful for those considering a career in tech after fifty, but anyone at any age looking for a career change!
