About the session

Can you develop beginner and senior engineers in the same way? Do they even do the same job? Most one-size-fits-all development frameworks fail engineers and their managers because how they learn and operate changes as the engineer grows.

Dan will walk you through a model designed to take this into account. With it you can land beginner engineers in place with the right foundations. You’ll inspire their progress, helping them build a wall of engineering knowledge, brick by brick. You can help seniors go on ambitious missions and support staff and engineers running site safety.

Come see how you can use 'the wall and the turrets' to engage and guide engineers of all levels.

Participant takeaways:

  • A reminder that software engineers need different styles of support, assistance and motivations at different stages of development, 
  • Understand the gains from approaching different levels of engineer differently
  • A model that guides the operation of engineer growth supporting each stage 
  • Take away guidance and options and a link to an article for onboarding Juniors

Themes:

Management, People, Education, Coaching, Scaling, Training, Growth, Framework
