Originally posted on Code Newbie

Years after John Sonmez had been programming, he learned something very important: while his coding skills were important, creating content was his secret. With his blog posts, and eventual books and speaking gigs, he was attracting and growing an audience, and with that came job opportunities and career growth. He shares what he’s learned along the way and how codenewbies everywhere can use storytelling to help build their tech career.
