In this episode of U-Turn, I talk with Garric Nahapetian. Garric graduated from law school in 2012, and, for a short time, worked as an attorney in southern California. Today, however, he writes code for a living. That’s right — he is now a programmer. I first heard of Garric via the weekly podcast he hosts called SwiftCoders, a podcast about Apple’s modern open-source programming language Swift. If you enjoy programming or even learning about the Apple ecosystem in general, I highly recommend you check it out!
Listen as we talk about dealing with family pressure to follow a certain career path, finding the courage to do something different, and teaching yourself to write code while driving for Uber part-time.
