Darren is a software developer, currently working for Microsoft, and the founder of the "That Programming Guy" company through which he does the two things that he loves most: helping people and tutoring in programming. When he's not working, he either plays video games, or does chores.

Together we talked about the detours Darren took in order to become a developer, like working for U-Haul and not finishing his college degree. Then we talked about the interviews he lived through and how he dealt with imposter syndrom. Finally, we touched on his entrepreneur philosophie and why he created "That programming guy".
