Ladybug Podcast

We're Emma Bostian, Sidney Buckner, Kelly Vaughn, and Ali Spittel - four seasoned software developers working in different sectors. Since there's a major lack of technical podcasts out there, we've decided to start one. Just kidding -- there's already a ton! But, we wanted to add our voices to the space and share our experiences and advice. We'll have great discussions around how to start coding, the hot technologies right now, how to get your first developer job, and more! Check out our website!

How often have you found yourself working late into the night at the office? Or maybe taking advantage of the quote unquote benefits like free dinner only to realize that your work life balance is strained? If this sounds like you, chances are it might be crazy at work.
