re: How Can I Help Foster A Culture of Continual Learning? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I joined a team 10 months ago with a hope of learning a lot from the other devs who've been doing this a lot longer. But the work all happens in a very silo-ed manner, so the only team I get to see any output from anyone else in the team is during peer review, which usually needs to be done in a timeframe that doesn't facilitate learning.

In order to try and get at the knowledge in the other developers heads I've been trying to organize monthly lunches (sponsored by the boss) to discuss topics much like in your lightning talks. We're up to number 6 now and so far I've presented 4.5 of them, but at least people are still showing up!

This is fantastic! And it can be a great way of spreading experience of knowledge of a very specific thing.

I ran a lightning talk on the three major .NET IDEs recently (VS, VS Code and Rider), and I feel like it went down pretty well.
