Last month I gave some advice to high-school interns at a "speed networking" event organized by Saturday Academy. I summarized my recommendations in this post up on Medium: "My Advice to These High-School Interns".
Do you have standard advice that you give to students interested in tech careers? I'd love to hear it. I feel like programming can feel a little overwhelming when some people start considering it as a career, and a little encouragement can go a long way.
