In this episode of Code Bytes, Stephen welcomes Martin McCartan, Director of Engineering at Songtradr.

Martin highlights the significance of face-to-face interactions in his global experiences and delves into mentorship's role in honing leadership skills for aspiring professionals.

The conversation covers skill shortages, evolving tech trends, and maintaining a balanced talent pool.

Code Bytes was formed to highlight the power of mentorship. We dedicate this to Martin's greatest mentor, his father Dr. Declan McCartan (QUB) who sadly passed away in the subsequent time since recording.
