    This week we were joined by Julie Ann Horvath, designer and developer for &yet. Julie has recently been the subject of tech news headlines because of her public resignation from her previous employer (Github) due to sexism and harassment. It’s a heavy and traumatic topic, but we’re thankful to Julie for sharing her experience so we can grow as a community and prevent these types of unfortunate events in the future.

    We talked about (roughly in order):

    5:15 Story behind Julie’s GitHub exit (Full Story: TechCrunch)


    28:37 Brendan Eich resigns as Mozilla Corporation CEO

    Note: Within minutes of wrapping this episode, Brendan Eich stepped down as CEO.

    Q & A:

    38:09 Do you have any advice on where to look for jobs where an experienced front-end developer could learn from their co-workers and be challenged?

    46:52 Since there are a lot of web development languages to learn and many developers know the usual HTML, CSS and Javascript. Which language would you say is a niche market to learn for hire?

    50:48 I feel like I may have too much on my plate for the year: should I ask my team for more help?
