Episode 008 – Becoming an Outlier with Cory House

Being an outlier is all about differentiating yourself from the rest of the pack of software developers competing for the same jobs, opportunities, and notoriety.  In this installment of the podcast, the Hallway Conversations team engages with Cory House between sessions at Nebraska Code Camp to explore what it takes to become a statistical outlier in the profession of software development.

Cory explores why one might want to become an outlier and offers techniques for your professional development and focus areas that can help put yourself on the path to achieve this goal.
