About this event

What's this Meetup about?

We want to host this event as a question answering meetup. We notice that there is a trend that people want to switch their careers to the tech industry, and there are more and more self-taught programmers on the market. Are you one of those? If yes, this meetup is tailored for you! :)

How long does it take to land a job? What kind of resource I should use to educate myself? What should I expect during a technical interview? You must have thousands of questions in your mind. Let us demystify them for you. 

This meetup is hosted by speakers who have personal career switching experience. Speakers will give a brief introduction about themselves and then be open to any questions you have.
