Max Matthews: Work Backwards
My big advice is...work backwards. Because it's so easy to learn all these tiny little concepts in programming. And it's cool and you're excited while you're doing it but at the end of the day, it's not an end result. And so, my big advice is have your end goal. Figure out where you want to end up and then work your way backwards from there.
Hosts Karin Thorne and Kelly Corey continue their conversation with Max Matthews and take a deeper dive into his experiences teaching at Start Fast Code and Careers in Code. Max shares his advice for someone looking to get started in programming and how to find a mentor to help along the way.
This episode is part IV of our series: Catching Up with Careers in Code! We chat with founders, instructors/TAs, and students of the first CiC cohort about their experience and where they'd like to see the program go in the future.
