Show Notes

Trisha took us from her first years at school, being an outsider, all the way to taking advantage of it as a developer advocate for JetBrains. During this fantastic discussion, we brushed over the people that helped and even pushed her. We spoke about being comfortable with being uncomfortable. We discussed taking a leap of faith, not burning bridges, taking control of your career, working on your brand, important developer skills and building on people.

Trisha has developed Java applications for a range of industries and non-profits of all sizes. She has expertise in Java high performance systems, is passionate about enabling developer productivity, and dabbles with Open Source development. Trisha is a leader of the Sevilla Java User Group, a Java Champion and a true believer in healthy communities. As a Developer Advocate for JetBrains, she gets to share all the interesting things she’s constantly discovering.

My audio feed was very low, my questions will be a bit hard to hear at some point. But I managed to save most of it and Trisha sounds fantastic!
