As a product delivery manager this course was great for me as it empathized the importance of empathetic story telling and how it intrinsically links strategy, design and development.
The facilitator was awesome The course content was easy to digest
The only down side for me was that it wasn't in person and collaboration of the work we we doing was minimal.

I completed Lambda and immediately started mentoring for Lambda X (post-graduate employment preparation program). Within two weeks, I was hired as a contracted junior front-end wed developer for a fortune 10 company. After a month at that company I was hired full time. Since then I have been promoted and work as a senior lead engineer. I now make more than double what I made in my last career and haven't looked back since.
