I get to work on a variety of projects all the time and I rarely do the same thing for very long. Some days, I'll be knee-deep in code. Other days, I might spend time whiteboarding with my team, working on design wireframes, or giving a presentation to my department. I feel most rewarded when I get to solve a business problem with my team and see other people benefit from the work we've done.

How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work
Vets Who Code is almost entirely operated online, so I spend a lot of time on a computer not only doing my own developing work, but also communicating and coaching the veterans I work with. We select up to 13 veterans per group and then we take them through guided lessons for about 14 weeks where we teach them the fundamentals of software programming from top to bottom. I also do a lot of follow up after they complete the program and offer whatever help I can to them in their lives or careers.
