I am not a very social-media-posting person but when I started to learn coding, one of the first things I did was following professional developers on the social networks to get some inspiration, gather tech learnings, career tips and jokes πŸ˜‰ One of these dev influencers is Anna McDougall, whose social networks content is not only inspiring but also very interesting and hilarious.

She stepped out of her comfort zone and switched her career completely from opera singer to professional developer. Her story catched my attention and that is why I didn't want to miss the opportunity to get to know a bit more about her career path and spread it out so that more people, who might be going through a similar transition moment, need some inspiration and career tips.
