Built by everyone

A session at Bytes Conf

Thursday 29th October, 2015

10:00pm to 10:30pm (GMT)

The tech industry is fast-moving and fast-growing. With a noticeably increasing number of aspiring developers teaching themselves using online resources, taking part in programming bootcamps and of course university graduates, there are plenty of people that want to take the career plunge. In this talk Rosa will reflect on how her first developer role and learning Ruby remotely on the job has worked out so far.

Rosa will also talk about the challenges of running diversity in tech events and the transition from being mentored to mentoring others. During this talk she will impart any advice she has to junior developers and people learning to code alongside more experienced developers, helping them gain a better idea of how to help support their juniors and build a more inclusive industry.
