From beer sales to writing code for a living


Today's interview is with Caitlyn Greffly. She used to work in sales for a beer company but was burned out and wanted a change of career. So she started exploring programming and signed up to a coding bootcamp. Now she is a developer at the financial website Motley Fool!

I talked to her on the No CS Degree podcast about self-teaching vs bootcamps, her tips for beginners and what being a professional developer is really like.
