Every other Friday, we host a conversation about careers with code - ask any career-focused question you'd like!
We've got a dozen members of the Codecademy staff here on Fridays to participate in the discussion also, to help answer any questions you may have. Simply log in and make a new topic with [Career Talk] in the title, or reply to this thread and we'll turn your question into its own topic for you.
We'll keep your question topic linked below, and we'll reply to it in its own thread. We've got Codecademy staff members from multiple teams here, including engineering, design, marketing, curriculum, people, and more! We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Though I'm not anywhere near being ready, I was wondering what the process would be like eventually as a self taught developer looking for a job. Would having some sort of industry certification be useful?
