From mechanical to software engineering: a career switch story

In a recent episode of Data Driven, I spoke with Kristen Kehrer who started her career as a statistician before making the switch to data science.

This got me thinking about other people who come a “STEM” field and made the switch over to coding.

Here’s an interesting story about an aerospace engineer who came over to coding.

hey, i’m Jackie! I’m a self-taught software engineer based in London. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and started my career 3 years ago as an aerospace engineer. I got into coding by writing scripts to automate simulation workflows and taught myself web development at home. Thank u for watching! 🧡
