October 2020, 8

My guest today is former Olympian, Julia Rivard Dexter, turned CEO and founder of Squiggle Park, an online platform that creates games to promote literary skills. She may be a non-technical founder, but Julia is definitely no stranger to long-term skill development. She gives some insight into the benefits of being a non-developer in the field while sharing her tips and tricks on how to hire developers and programmers.
