002 - Career Progression

We’re sitting down with Senior Developer Colin DeCarlo, and occasional computer user Daniel Mills, to discuss how they started, where they’ve been, and choices made along the way. Regardless of where your career is at, Colin and Dan have wisdom to spare. 

From early days during the dot-com bust, to running and hosting Southern Ontario’s premiere PHP user’s group, Colin’s breadth of perspective and experience is tough to beat. Dan’s start as a co-op, through Angular pro, and onto expert and proponent of Javascript fundamentals, is nothing to sniff at. Listen in for a fun romp through two careers’ worth of dos, don’ts, and dunnos.
