Danny Thompson discusses his road to a successful tech career, after working for years outside the industry (frying chicken at gas-stations). He explains the importance of setting goals and following through, and how to overcome adversity, and handle setbacks. It's simultaneously a very inspirational story, but also filled with lots of very practical advice and action items to pursue. For example, the importance of attending and participating in Meetups and engaging with the local tech community.
