Ep. 31: Jerome Hardaway, Founder of Vets Who Code

Season 4, Ep. 31

When Jerome Hardaway was hired at the Department of Defense, it wasn't because of the skills he learned in the military; it was the ones he taught himself after leaving the Air Force. This week on Founder to Founder, he talks with Teja about the life-changing world of software, working to help Vets channel their military skills into successful tech careers, and a sprinkling of martial arts and anime.
