The JDT Story
Junior Developer Toolbox is a podcast about building, maintaining, and surviving a career in software engineering. We present real talk from the trenches about everyday life as a junior developer. We aim to provide deep dive discussions on issues affecting new and junior-level programmers in the workplace and beyond.

Erin Orstrom is a graduate of Cohort 12 from Nashville Software School, a non-profit, software development bootcamp. She studied Front-end technologies, such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Angular and Back-end technologies, including C#/.NET and SQL in the full time, 6 month program. She currently has over a year of professional experience as a junior developer.

Dave Harned is a self-taught front-end developer. He studied online for about two years on sites like FreeCodeCamp and Codecademy, before recently starting a role as a web administrator. These two came together in August of 2017 to create the Junior Developer Toolbox podcast, a sibling podcast of the Complete Developer Podcast and a part of the Complete Developer Network.

With the emergence and growth of software bootcamps and similar coding programs that are flooding the market with junior developers, it occurred to us that there weren’t currently many resources to help newbies navigate the software development field. How do I find my first job? What learning resources are best for beginners? What languages and frameworks should I learn?

We aim to address these questions and more, to help guide those thinking about getting into software development and new developers through the hurdles and difficulties encountered when trying to break into the field of software development.
The first episode launched September 26, 2017 and episodes are released on a biweekly basis.

Help Us Out
Dave and Erin have been producing episodes for Junior Developer Toolbox for over a year now, and want to be able to take the content, marketing, and stories being told to the next level. But accomplishing these things take time and cost money, from buying JDT swag to give to listeners, paying for marketing and promoting of the show, to the time it takes to edit episodes and make all of this happen and do what we love - helping others get a start in their tech/software development careers, and we need YOUR help to keep it going and taking JDT to the next level.

We believe that JDT has huge potential to help people wanting to break into the field find resources to get started, participate in a supportive community, and help advance their careers to the next level, and we want to be able to continue to produce content and enhance the audio, delivery, and overall quality of our content. 

We want to say thank you in advance if you decide to become a Patron to our cause!
