Cultures of Effective Learning

A session at Rocky Mountain Ruby 2012

Thursday 20th September, 2012

2:20pm to 2:45pm (MST)

How do we learn new things? How can someone learn to build a web application if they've never built one before? And once we have grasped the essentials, how do we elevate our game to the next level? In an era of a seemingly permanent talent shortage, how can organizations sensibly invest in less-experienced developers and help them grow?

There are practical things we can do, both as individuals, organizations, and open source communities, to continually grow in both skills and perspective. In this talk I'll explore time-tested strategies that accelerate the learning process, enhance an experienced developer's skills, and help beginners move into environments where they can be most productive.
