This knowledge is available to you no matter where you live and no matter what industry you come from. All you need to do is change the way you think. In this talk, Andrea Goulet will share her journey from not knowing how to code to becoming an industry leader. You'll get immediately actionable insights that will help you shatter glass ceilings, increase confidence, and grow your technical, social, and professional prowess.
