    Power Pairing. Pair Programming For Accelerating Junior Dev Contributions To Startups

    Every founding team faces two of the critical questions: 1) Who do we hire? 2) How do we get the most out of each member of the technical team? To steal some phrasing from James Carville, “It’s about about the talent, stupid.” This seminar will focus on effective pair programming as one of those techniques that mid-level and senior developers can use to ramp-up juniors on their teams. Not all pairing is created equal for ramping up junior devs. Bring your laptops, as we simulate best practices.

    Session Leaders: Andreas Kavountzis - Enterprise Principal Instructor from Curriculum developer Martha Berner - Software Developer at Galvanize

  • 3:50 pm - 4:50 pm
