Pizza and Networking: 6:00 - 6:30 Presentation: 6:30 - 8:00 JetBrains IntelliJ giveaway

Details Your job isn’t 100% code, so improving skills like how you learn, how to focus, and coping mechanisms need to be worked on just like learning a new framework. Everyone has struggles, whether it is accepting criticism, managing stress, or finding time for passion projects. But those don’t have to hold us back! We’ll learn 4 techniques to help with these exact issues. Even if you never go to “soft skills” talks, these techniques can help you grow, improve and maybe stick with a new habit for once.
