How can you build a following, and a career, with memes? In this episode of the Sourcegraph Podcast, Cassidy Williams, Director of Developer Experience at Netlify, joins Beyang Liu, co-founder and CTO of Sourcegraph, to discuss why we should consider communication a core skill instead of a soft skill, why you should be a developer advocate or a software engineer but not both, and why, when learning React, you should start with the fundamentals. Along the way, Cassidy shares stories about the job she held the longest (mascot for Iowa State), positive and negative experiences from the heyday of hackathons, and the time she nearly went blind from burnout.
