Are you considering a coding bootcamp?
Are you a coding bootcamp grad trying to find your dream job?
Do you want to know how to negotiate the salary for your first job as a software developer?

If so, join our Codementor Office Hours with Haseeb Quresh! Haseeb has recently gained national media attention after sharing his story, from attending a coding bootcamp to negotiating a $250,000 compensation package at Airbnb. His story has been featured on publications like BuzzFeed, Business Insider, and has also appeared on the front page of Hacker News.

Before getting into the tech industry and moving to California, Haseeb was a professional poker player and a non-CS major (he majored in English). He later enrolled in App Academy—a top coding bootcamp in San Francisco—and graduated at the top of his class. He became part of the bootcamp's core team as an instructor, and later, the Director of Product. Haseeb then wanted to transition into becoming a full-time developer, but initially, his job applications were rejected at the first 20+ companies he applied for. Things turned around after a few weeks as he started receiving offers from Google, Yelp, Stripe, & Uber.
