As part of our alumni success series, we followed up with Pusher to see how our Makers were getting on. We were thrilled to be able to interview VP of Engineering, Sam Stagg who has some awesome perspectives on engineering culture, not to mention - a bucketload of enthusiasm for the product.
Pusher has hired a number of Makers engineers over the years, and currently employs resident superstar Ham Chapman. We were delighted to speak to Ham about his 3-year journey, in which he has progressed from junior to mid. He talks to us about his transition since completing the course:
