The Pragmatic Hero's Journey Podcast: Sophie DeBenedetto

Sophie DeBenedetto is a software engineer at GitHub and a former teacher at the Flatiron School. At GitHub, Sophie works on tools that power software collaboration around the world.

Her language of choice is Elixir, and it's no surprise considering all she's done—and is currently doing—for the Elixir community. Not only is she a contributor and maintainer of Elixir School, a newsletter chock-full of resources for anyone learning to code and working hard to get started in the tech field, she's also the co-host of the Elixir Mix podcast.

On this episode, Sophie talks about her journey to becoming a pragmatic author and how she is passionate about helping people change their lives through code.

You can listen to the rest of Sophie's story on this episode of the Pragmatic Hero's Journey podcast.
