Supporting Each Other: Growth for Juniors and Seniors
Lara is a self-made Android developer based in Berlin. Her passion for Android made her transition from her background in science to software development. Her dream is to make apps more accessible for everyone. When she's not attending a tech meetup, you will find her playing video games.
Bringing Junior developers into your team can be a challenge, but it can also be rewarding. Mentoring can benefit both sides: It can help juniors with the most difficult moment in their career, and it can help seniors become better professionals. Come and learn how juniors and seniors can support each other and grow together. You can benefit from this talk no matter what’s your level of expertise. As a junior, you will learn that you are not alone, that you can stop the impostors syndrome, and to be a better apprentice. As a senior, you will learn the benefits of being a good mentor, and how to become one. I will share my experience as a developer who is working on growing up in the career ladder.
