Lessons from a Nike Software Engineer: How to get a Job as a Frontend Engineer (ex. Peloton, Lockheed Martin, Mack 43)

This session is focused on supporting experienced frontend developers (2 years+ of professional experience). This session is NOT a workshop or presentation. Instead, this session allows you to connect with an experienced software engineer developer to ask questions on frontend software engineering interview prep, interview questions & tricks, resumes, and more.

Please send your questions here ahead of time so that we can collate the most asked questions for our facilitator.
