Discussion on: What Are Your Career Goals?

Eek! This question makes me so nervous! My #shecoded post goes into my professional background a bit, so I won't rehash here, but I'm just now figuring out my next step. I've taken a great job at a large startup, but I'm not programming in my day job. I thought I could commit to OS in my free time. That hasn't happened. I keep asking myself, "What are you going to do about it?" Anyone care to share an answer that I can take as my own? :D

Not sure what this will look like yet, but I'm keeping my options open. In the short term, I'm staying involved. I want to use my skills, so perhaps teaching a Girl Develop It class?

Long term - I want to encourage others to take a chance on their dreams (channeling my idealistic college-self here) and overcome the barriers and bias that stand in the way of them getting there.
