I am in the early years of my career, and I know my goal but I'm still working out how to get there. If you have insight into one of the varied career paths that lead to Software Architect, I'd love to hear it.
To be clear, I know there's no "do XYZ and you've made it!" I am looking to collect stories and experiences to serve as points of reference as I move forward in my career and evaluate things like skills, languages, and tools to learn and use. I appreciate your input!
