SUMMARY: If you are listening to this podcast, you are probably spending more time in front of a computer than normal, due to the pandemic.  Or, maybe you are thinking about a new career that will require that you learn new skills.  Or maybe you just want to make your job a little easier by automating some of the boring, manual processes you do everyday.

Here with me to talk about this today is: Charles Givre.

Charles is a data scientist that has worked in cybersecurity for over 10 years; he wrote a book on the topic for O’Rielly publishing and he is a prolific speaker on cybersecurity and data engineering.

What is an easy way for a person to see if they may enjoy coding, or may have the aptitude for a new career in software development?
