Session: Persistence, Hard-work and dedication will keep you going
What keeps us in technology when our environment is not as fulfilling as we would have hoped? Why stay in an industry that can be harsh and you can be ill-treated? Or is there a way to 'fit' in the industry through persistence, hard-work and dedication? Would increasing the education you receive bolster your career for the future and ensure you remain in an industry that may be asking you to leave? Can we all stay in programming for the long-term or do we all need to go to management in the end?
