Lightning Talk: It's Your Career, Manage It

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Where do you want to go? What do you want to do? What do you want to focus on? The software industry moves quickly, and you can use this to your advantage. If you are committed to a lifetime of learning, you will never be bored in this field. You can learn new technologies, emphasize different domains, take on different responsibilities.

Let's figure out what that is!
