Hiring junior developers is a brilliant way to bulster your team without the high-cost of experienced developers.

Many developers dread hiring and working with junior developers, how do you know if they have the right skills? What should your expectations be?

Once you've found the right person, how do you make sure they are getting the support they need?

Maybe you're terrified of lots of hand-holding, or maybe you're excited because you get to pass on your experience.

Either way, it's in everyone's best interest that they succeed. This talk is perfect for both junior developers joining a new team and developers who work with (or will) junior developers.

Would of liked more focus around engaging juniors from a remote standpoint. But overall a great talk.

Lots of actionable advice. Put the salary in the job description, schedule in dedicated learning time, plan for the first day, week and month.
Loved the examples back to his previous students.

Lots of really useful content here, some we're doing, some we're not (not yet!), would've been great to include some remote tips, but otherwise great talk overall.
