Robyn Larsen became a developer out of pure desperation. After quitting the 9-5 as a nuclear engineer, she was out of money and out of ideas. Fast forward: Robyn is now working with some of the world’s top agencies including MetaLabs and Cossette.
In this session, Robyn will discuss the 9 week transition and how she landed her first big contract with 140 characters, the similarities/differences in both careers, what she learned along the way and where she is going now. Robyn is a former nuclear engineer now blurring the lines between work and play as a front end web developer, mentor and entrepreneur.
Robyn holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from the University of Alberta and is an alumni of HackerYou in Toronto.
Doors open at 6:00 & talk will begin at 6:30 sharp.
