Proper Care and Feeding of Jr. Developers

Jr. Developers require more than just a first job; they need help, and they need it from YOU. More than just a weekly coaching session. More than the odd email with feedback. This talk will focus on concrete, actionable tasks which can be implemented by mid- and Sr. Developers to help their Jr. teammates be more effective, more efficient, and more independent at work. A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link; learn how to strengthen your team with me.
