In this edition of the Zeal stream, I had a chat with Zan Rosenthal about life after Coding Boot Camps. Zan is an alum for Hack Reactor and has been doing web development professionally for the past 3+ years. I took some time to talk to him about his experience going through a Coding Boot Camp, what it was like looking for work after graduating, and advice for aspiring new developers.
I hope you enjoy this interview and thank you for the support.
