Abstract

Developing Developers Through Apprenticeship

Todays emerging talent needs your help! In this discussion, we will identify ways to cultivate and encourage professional growth. When it comes to collaborating, pairing, code review, performance review, and in providing architectural advice, there is always a learning experience to be had! We’ll talk about how to maximize those opportunities, and how to make them fulfilling for both the mentor and mentee.
