Hacker Career Advice

👋 Hi, I’m Neal. Since 2013, I’ve written Devpost’s weekly newsletter to an audience of over 200,000 hackers.

In addition to the best online & local hackathons, I try to give developers actionable & non-patronizing career advice.

I’m no expert, but I’ve worked at big companies & startups, switched careers, been laid off, ghosted by recruiters, asked to work for free, and bombed whiteboard interviews.

Sound familiar?
