This week , I learnt that it is quite important to organise little workshops and 'hackathons' for development teams ! Teams are diverse πŸ€“πŸ€ πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎπŸ€‘πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦³πŸ™‡β€β™‚οΈ , some stay motivated and thorough, others have too much going on in their lives.

People of all ages are getting into development , but many of them don't have the technical experience or the C.S. perspectives to fit into the really demanding jobs.

These really demanding jobs require more than mere competence : they challenge your problem-solving skillsπŸ”ΉοΈ and your capacity for collaborationπŸ”». Managers are always presenting progress reports to their boards and facing all kinds of objections ⚠️🟨🧱🧱πŸŸ₯.

Various compromises will be made in order to deliver on schedule, and some months later users discover lots of random crickets 'n buggies! πŸ¦—πŸœβ˜˜πŸ¦—πŸŒ±

πŸ‘‰General courses are fine at the outset - however newbies still need to experience following schedules and adapting to new sorts of workflows (i.e. Summer of Code , issues raised with Github Repos).
