2FD 030: Investing In Yourself


Are you dedicating some of your time towards investing in yourself?

Kevin and Sean reunited in Virginia Beach, VA at RevolutionConf, a conference for software engineers. Getting involved in our industry’s community through attending and eventually organizing meetups and conferences has played a key role in our professional development.

Investing in yourself can range from improving your health, getting organized, education and building your network. It’s important to understand what works for you and how to grow your resume on a budget. CHA-CHING!

We apologize about the audio quality and echoing in this episode. It was nice seeing each other in person but recording across from each other wasn’t the best idea 🙂
