Breaking into tech for non-traditional folks

Landing a role in tech can feel daunting, especially coming from outside the industry. So we've interviewed over 50 technologists and written multiple books (How To Product, YBIT Booklets) where we reveal the most essential skills and commonalities that have made those folks successful. In addition, our ongoing you belong in tech campaign with over 100 participants (another example) continues to spread the importance of belonging and overcoming imposter syndrome for any folks that want to break into the industry.
