Cultures of Effective Learning

A session at WebVisions Chicago 2012

Friday 28th September, 2012

3:15pm to 4:00pm (CST)

How can you learn to build a web application if you’ve never built one before? And once you have grasped the essentials, how can you elevate your 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 as individuals, organizations, and open source communities, to continually grow in both skill and perspective. In this talk I’ll explore time-tested strategies that create a culture of learning, enhance a developer’s skills, and help beginners move into environments where they can be most productive.
