Bill Kennedy / Andy Walker

In this episode, we talk to Andy Walker about his childhood and how he got into programming, his journey in cybersecurity, and some of the soft skills that are so valuable to have in this industry. We kick things off by hearing Andy talk about his early love of computers, his early hacks, and how he fell into more serious programming at college after switching from Biology to a CS major. We talk about the value of meetups for making friends and how these events can be more welcoming! We then wrap up hearing Andy talk about where he would like to see himself in the future.
