#029 - An Unlikely Developer Journey
Jun 03, 2021
Julian Sequeira & Bob Belderbos

A common issue is the fear and uncertainty around employment our veterans face when leaving the military. After years of solid structure, coming into the civilian world and being left to fend for yourself and not know if you'll be able to land a "9-5 job" can be incredibly daunting.

This is the situation our guest found himself in when he left the Australian Army.

In this very special episode, I speak with one of my best mates, Ranui "Ra" Rice.

Ra tells the story of how he left the military and eventually worked his way into the Tech Industry, discovering his passion for front-end development and graphic design.

His journey was not linear and Ra shares many tips and lessons he learned over the years. It wasn't easy but his mindset and determination were his greatest asset.

There's a lot to digest in this episode so listen to it once, then listen to it again and take notes!

Two of my favourite quotes from Ra:

  • "Time is wasted when you don't do anything with it".
  • "Treat yourself the way you'd treat others."


If you'd like to say g'day to Ra, look him up on the PyBites Slack - "Ranui Rice".
