Office Hours

If you hadn’t noticed from this post and the last one... I am feeling grateful and like I need to give back to the community a bit. So while Hack Night SLC is ramping back up I thought it would be good to try out office hours.

I recognize that the fact that I can do this is a deep privilege, and that I’ve been lucky enough to have mentors and friends help me throughout my career. I really wouldn’t be where I am without many blessings, and lots of help.

So I am going to try and help others with the same sort of things.

What do you do in these office hours?

So far I’ve done 2 office hour meetings. We talked about career stuff. We talked about interviews and how to handle them better. We talked about where they wanted to be in their careers. We talked about some ideas for how to get there.

I don’t really have a plan for what to cover. If you sign up you can leave a note there about what you would like to talk about. Could be bikes. Could be programming. Could just be that you need to talk. Whatever. I am here as a resource for you for the 20-ish minutes that our meeting lasts. So whatever questions that you have about I’ll do my best to answer.

I’ve really enjoyed it so far and hopefully it’s been useful and fun for the folks that I’ve met with.

How do I sign up?
