Really enjoyed listening to Michael’s story. Great podcast. He was very funny and I like how honest he was about learning code.
Michael was so fun to talk to.
I felt like I was with guys in the room learning about Mike and finding a new career. I was talking to my teenage son about how each generation will have new jobs and that market is always changing. Hearing what happened to him shows that you need to learn more skills to land a job.
Thank you Brian. I agree with you. Coding is a great way to prepare for the future.
