Recently I had the change to talk with Joél Ramirez (Joxel) about the challenges he faced getting a software engineering job without a degree.
Instead of finishing his college degree due to some challenges, he chose to make the most of his situation and go all-in by pursuing technology on his own.
Coming from an underprivileged / underrepresented background, it's amazing what he's done against the odds!
Check out this interview with Joxel, here:
