[.NET@Night] Beyond Jr Dev Panel Discussion
April 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT
**Topic: Beyond Jr Dev**
What does it take to make it through your first few years as a new dev? When do you stop calling yourself a Jr. Dev? What can you expect in your early years as a dev and how can you make the most of that time.
Join us as some devs who aren’t old cranky grey neck beards share their recent journeys and answer your questions.
**Speaker: Chase** **Struse**
Chase has been a software developer professionally for 5 years. Throughout those 5 years he has been able to work with various technologies and work on diverse projects that have helped me grow his career and knowledge. While not working on professional software he loves creating side projects such as indie games, discord bots, and mobile apps.
