It’s easy to spend your entire day, heads down, coding projects without thinking twice about
other developers around you. We often get too absorbed with completing our immediate
deadlines to spend any time considering the future of our projects, the future of our teams.
By not mentoring new developers we are failing our future. We are failing at providing new
developers with the industry experience they need to be a one-day successful candidate for our
teams.

In this session, we will talk about:
- Why your organization should hire junior developers
- How to write better job descriptions for junior developers
- How to create a mentorship program within your organization
- Where to find mentors or junior developers seeking mentorship
- How to be an effective mentor & mentee
- Shocking statistics about our job outlook and developer market
