Good morning all, my name is Johanna and I am moving to New York in a few weeks from Arlington, VA.
I worked as an economist for about three and a half years (MA in econ from George Mason and BA in econ, Virginia Tech) and I became interested in software development after listening to Paul Graham the co-founder of Y-combinator on a podcast called EconTalk. After reading his essays and learning to program I knew this was the path I wanted to take!
I’m so excited to immerse myself in this world and start building amazing web applications with you all.
Here is the podcast if you are interested!
