#75: Kent C. Dodds - Improving the World with Quality Software [S04-E15]

The Solo Coder Podcast

I spoke with Kent C Dodds. After so many past guests of the podcast mentioning that they admire Kent, I decided to invite him and he readily accepted it. Kent is a power house content creator with the personal mission of "improving the world with quality software". He is the creator of TestingJavascript.com and EpicReact.com - Both have a blend of course and workshop flavor. Kent has a big following on both YouTube and Twitter. We spoke a bit about why he has such large following. He also does a lot of live streams including his "Office Hours" which is when his students are able to ask him anything. Kent shared the bold strategy that he used to move from intern to full-time employee as he was just starting out in the industry. You can't miss that! Admired by many and just a nice humble guy, I leave you with Kent C. Dodds, my first guest of 2021! Enjoy the chat! Full show notes and links: https://SoloCoder.com/75

II still wasn’t convinced that I wanted to program. But I thought ‘hey I really enjoy computers, I’m really good at these computer things, and business seems interesting.’”“I think that’s what got me started into UI was just that really quick feedback cycle of seeing the impact of the changes I was making.”“Right around the time I graduated from college I started making videos for egghead. My first course I created was using JWTs with AngularJS. And My first month I got my royalty check and it paid my mortgage for that month. And it did so thereafter.”—Kent C.
