Workshop for Junior Developers
Home assignments are here to stay as they offer less biased views and are more focused on the quality of your work.
Unfortunately, if you’re a Junior Developer, the quality of work is usually what stands out. Your projects won’t look like what a professional reviewer is used to: They may be messy, half-working, or lacking documentation and instructions.
Workshop participants will learn an organized system for working on a small project while presenting best-practices. That means passing more interview steps, more options to choose from, and more bargaining power for your next job.
- Bring your own laptop and development environment. There will be some coding involved, make sure you’re all set-up, because we wouldn’t want to lose any time over it.
- This workshop is backend oriented, but language agnostic - You can use Python, NodeJS, Java - Whatever you’re comfortable with. This is not the time to experiment with new languages. The code won’t be the issue here.
- How proficient should you be? If you can write and understand what’s going on in a small web-server tutorial (i.e. Flask for Python, builtin HTTP for Node, Spring Bootstrap for Java).
- Install Docker and make sure it’s running.
