and and and and and and and the I I minus retirement and I would get started obviously our I'm really happy to be here today and eventually in in a very long time the hinterland since I was a kid and my parents shipped me away for a summer to go work on my grandfather's chicken farm this is standing here on this stage right now with all of you out there is a lot better than the chicken farm a lot better I'm so a little bit about my professional background I am a recovering marketed as in marketing and branding for 10 years um I've been clean for almost 2 years very very proud about i in in designs make that careers which I attended out 6 months super intends to develop a training program and I have been formally employed as a real developers for almost 2 years while just over here and here I added were product consultancy in and and development firm based in Denver I am the only 1 on the team with less than 13 years experience I'm also the only girl on 19 and a half while I found conducting some days it is but they are extremely supportive team and I count myself extraordinarily lucky to be learning from masters of the craft I also want dead Denver chapter for Girl Develop helping to bring affordable judgment free and professional software education to women really enjoy that I swear this is the last logo slide some student hard I have been in exactly 2 apprenticeships since I graduated from the training program and so as a new descendant and develop and growth is very near and dear to my heart but I find apprenticeship in all our industry to be a little scary side quite frankly and not just for the apprentice and I'm going to talk about today specifically what is so scary about developer apprenticeships what's missing from them at the end of the day what's important what should we value in our premises in our partnership programs my hope is that he'll be here today with maybe some fresh perspective on a few ideas but 1st and take it back a little bit and talk about the inspiration for this talk it is also near and dear to my heart are ease movies and the title but whether it does not mean works speed was inspired by an eighties cult classic The Lost Boys and designs it 1 minute of our time and share that relevant scene with you to yeah
I used
in my I
the the we would like to
get to the end of the month within that part you know that it's constantly the if you
of them because of
the way
that
types of of this is not the 1 of the
and
although I certainly don't wanna come across as overly dramatic I mean developer apprenticeships not is scary is bloodsucking the empires gets depend on who you ask I this the movie because here's this kid I'm trying to save his brother and his friends family from a gang of vampires he's got the impending deadline of nightfall upon him the from brothers were screaming at him to hurry up and not to mention he just saw a pack of vampires like for real the anything that enough already he been near drives the whole lot of them off the edge of a cliff to this certain that that he's trying so hard to avoid and then that ended the cliff 0 shit moment that he screams burn rubber does not mean warp speed like hey use understudy error but warp speed is not necessarily my tempo in clearly not necessarily in the best interest of saving our asses right now the and so I think the high this seeking movie line is kind of a valuable love Monterrey metaphor in that working hard being passion and being committed or being scared shitless for that matter but do not necessarily add to inability to move at a pre-determined speed and that's the is not necessarily the prime indicator of progress the success or in extreme cases survival and yet while I was learning into code in my developer training program and it as well as through both of my apprenticeships I found myself supremely focused on how fast I was moving was echoing fast enough was a learning fast enough all the hardware and the but 0 no all the by the deadline what i'd what happens in a lot of these so not felt to be a developer and so on that's 10 months post grad developer training program for me to chill out of some the other and invited the mind you this is this is not because I'm now decoding sensei other because I am I found comfort in the value that I was able to bring outside of my hard coding skills so of background in marketing law in client management and I was able to contribute in a lot of areas both inside and outside of the code itself additionally have found peace with myself in the rate at which I was learning and the things that I needed to do you as an individual to foster that learning there is a really tough road getting to that spot Austin Robert doubt and sometimes a crippling fear even write more code or even speak up about what I was thinking and what I was feeling and so was this journey has self-realization on over the last year of that made me wonder flat and talk to my teammates and some other premises about how developer apprenticeships are perceived how the structured how they're managed and whether or not I me as an industry might be no missing some key opportunities to approve apprenticeships so you get a conversation started and a little bit of research on so and friendship is the system of training a new generation of practitioners of a traitor profession with an on-the-job training approach usually mixed with some kind of formal study meaning books study classroom study and traditionally apprenticeships I would also lead to the procurement of say license in a regulated profession and the system by which a lot of promises will launch their careers as most of the training is done while working for an employer who invest in the end credits in exchange for continued labor for and we have not agreed upon amount of time after the prince has achieved of competencies that were defined in the program so the system was 1st developed in the later Middle Ages and it came to be supervised by craft guilds and town governments during this time but typical apprentice was a fairly inexpensive form of labor rates so whereby the master craftsman would employ the apprentice in exchange for food lodging and formal training in the crash and within the entirety of the apprenticeship system there are some very specific stages and the 1st obvious thing that of an apprentice in the Middle Ages an apprentice spent about 7 years In this phase apprentices were compensated such that they can meet live reasonably well his they were worried about where my next meal is coming from I know that certainly part of their compensation was the 2 edge in France in the profession and so you know they were rolling in the dough so to speak out following the approach here is 1 would advance to journeymen years adjournment is an individual who has completed an apprenticeship and therefore fully educated in a traitor craft but they're not master so in the Middle Ages during men were often required to accomplish a three-year working trip traveling around gaining experience in the profession across a variety of locations working with different masses this phase can actually last anywhere from 3 years to life because well the final phase of master was never guarantee to become a master journeyman has to submit masterwork To deal for evaluation and then they had to be admitted to the guild as the master the a master craftsman her master tradesman was a member of a guild and in the European guild system of only masses injury men were allowed to actually be members of the guilds an aspiring master would have to pass through a career change from apprentice to journeyman before he could be elected to become the master craftsman then the journeyman would have to produce a sum of money can a masterpiece before they can actually gain that membership master within the Guild and if a masterpiece was not accepted by the masses they could possibly remain a journeyman for the rest of their life the also I chose this picture because I think that you know when you have arrived at NASA when you can drink and smoke while achieving aircraft I want to work with developers who can concoct code I have not yet arrived so that kind of history of apprenticeships got me thinking about some familiar modern apprenticeships and the length of their friendship periods so the current LinkedIn definition site modern apprenticeships as running somewhere between 3 to 6 years on average so let's consider some that were probably all pretty familiar the who can tell me how long a British is for doctors just shout it out people 7 3 8 years this depends on conductor you are I like traditions the all 4 years how about traditional engineers anyone dealer no 3 to 5 years to Matisse faded over the 3 of 5 years OK last 1 tattoo artist don't me now I hold that against it's not at 1 to 5 years old the the of OK so who are the key takeaways for me as I was reading about apprenticeships and then the danger here is like a lot of years and methodical pay the stages their levels of powers requirements in an application for master status in licensing and also that there is a commitment on both sides of the equation to that time in process including committed in on time after the formal partnership period so we circled back to developer partnerships and what's so scary about them at a service speed I think the impressionists in our industry are pretty scary on having the speed is it is what's so scary I originates in many of the modern developer training programs which are growing a prolific rate I really liked today there are more books online programs schools who bootcamps all reporting to turn you into a developer fast fast fast like to the tune of 24 hours 10 weeks 3 months 6 months and also frightening as an online doctors engineers electricians as all licensing body no regulations the standards for the quality of curriculum or the quality of student that these programs are producing and now let's consider formal developer apprenticeships Postgrad 3 months 6 months if you're lucky you'll find 1 that's year when the vast majority are running at 3 to 6 months very few a year or longer and even more terrifying is that the number of apprenticeships is actually pretty limited tons and tons and employers are hiring graduates as fully qualified developers right out a gate from some of these programs and so here's what's concerning to me with the speed in this particular context I think it promotes
some dangerous misconceptions about our craft like learning to code is fast and fast is the the and because it's that's easy well that is clearly a finite endeavor to something check up the list and go start collecting a check but as developers we know all tell what we do is not trivial the she is hard the learning is the infinity and the mastery takes years like to the tune of 10 and learning your life to building great software requires a passionate commitment patience and conviction another scary thing about developer partnerships Odinga assumptions David brand scientists and science fiction author said the worst mistake of 1st contact made throughout history by individuals on both sides of every you encounter has been the unfortunate habit of making assumptions it often proved fail that dumb it's a matter slate flair for the dramatic is the don't really believe any of the assumptions of a position with you right now have about actually prove proved to fail but do you think that the important I do think they get overlooked and they can result in unintended negative consequences a couple assumptions made by employers the employers assume apprentices will be vocal and open and that is not always true in fact rarely also another assumption by employers by virtue of being a senior developer you are well equipped to teach in junior developer assumptions by apprentices upon graduation from a modern training program you are immediately employable and handsomely compensated and most importantly you are nothing like an apprentice another assumption advancing through levels of developer status apprentice if you happen to start their arms or from junior level to senior level for instance well defined transitions within our industry common throughout and easily portable as titles from 1 employer to the next left untreated assumptions can be very dangerous thing but the composition and pit you find yourself having to dig out of enough times series so what are some potential consequences then we might find in this bad things like a young developer making the wrong choice the job because of a promise of a higher title in and or salary and ending up in an environment where the ultimately set up to fail or employer frustration because progress is not being x 3 expectations and have 0 input as to why that it's confusion and anxiety on both sides of the fence about where and how an apprentice actually fits into a larger teams another scary thing is measurements although in and of itself measurement is not a scary thing but specifically related to developer partnerships something that I think the scary 1 size fits all approach so we create a standard plan and very specific milestones and very specific skills that bars on a very specific timeline and then we expect each apprentice to exist to succeed on a plane precisely as it was written were likely to find some disappointment it is the difference is going to be different and each 1 will have a different learning style and we will bring a different set of strengths and weaknesses to the table so be wary of inflexibility of a 1 size fits all approach in a pressure program and mentorship style it coding skills are course important but it is the only thing we evaluate our apprentices by their or missing on some other important factors for instance can integrate integrate with our team effectively do we like them Gustav even like us are they creative thinkers can we relate to them personally and a happy when they come into work everyday and how would you know additionally let's consider other professional skills the promises can offer from their respective backgrounds take me for instance so I bring marketing client managements and even some legal expertise which were value add to the team outside of the codebase and end up being pretty critical in our business relationships so when we consider the value of an apprentice is important Think beyond just the hard coding skills another skating where measurement developer apprenticeships is concerned is follow through when we say we're going to measure but then we don't and this actually happens a lot typically a case of the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry meaning at the start of the friendship it's not with a lot of energy about all the things that make up the program like weekly check-ins and scheduled mentorship an individual projects sometimes to time to read a learning Explorer and then work happens or the Apprentice just begins producing and quickly the team loses sight of the oppression because now I have someone producing real work so let's just keep them this let them do that because everyone is so busy and anyway really what's the point and a pressure business on-the-job training right but now about employer apprentice have lost a platform from which to objectively and substantively evaluate progress contributions and growth so what's so scary about another partnerships shot learning oppressive out the door like fast food failing to recognize identify and address assumptions on both sides of the fence and neglecting to measure the right things at the right time on the right scale it so what's missing from the apprenticeships and our industry the mind-set of learning a profession verses learning a skill many and develop a training program can give people some skills but becoming a successful developer is about learning a profession and not just with the mind-set of trying to bulk up coding skills as quickly as possible but rather taking the time to mentor premises around things like interpersonal skills the cross functional team dynamics and mentoring them around gaining a deeper understanding of the business of building software were also missing the time to just be an apprentice pressures availability their real whether you're private company or a consultancy but also real as the investment that you're making an apprentice and because of these pressures the times it just be in France is in jeopardy of being cut short the demand for developers high junior salary infantile expectations many would absolutely fair inflated employers practice is both a looking for some degree of job security and yet so few apprenticeships are structured for any kind of long-term commitment much like we might structure of a relocation package we should look for mutually beneficial ways in which the structure of longer-term commitments between the parties of apprenticeship your promise for something longer than 6 months it'll put both sides in a position to focus on what's important in the program as well as providing for some predictability on a return at the employers making another important ingredient missing and investing is investing in mattresses teachers so just because of a team of seniors then we have a team of teachers and is because we can make a list of all the skills needed to be a fully functioning member of our team doesn't mean we can effectively structure curriculum appropriately tailored to the individual to achieve that set of requirements teaching as a formal skills that is missing from some apprenticeships we should be looking for ways to invest in Amen tours as teachers to give them the ideas and the requisite skills to foster really greater premises so what's missing from the impression the mind set that programming is more than just slinging code the time to just apprentice and investing inventories as formal teachers what's important in developer apprenticeships we don't have that software development is better served with an agile approach instead of a waterfall approach I pressure programs are better served as well approach the program like you approach developing new products start your key stakeholders men or an apprentice discuss the goals what you need the measures of success where the risks aligned on all the most important aspects of the program in a very clear understanding of each person's role in the contracts unusual and well understood commitment to those goals is critical for success also critical for success is due diligence in the process so rigorously implements and adhere to iteration planning meetings I Each 1 talk about what we well what fell short of the goals and figure out why and how to fix it and how about log in room that backlog because over time as a team gains insight into an apprentices specific strengths and weaknesses now you can
adjust the tutelage and the expectations we make sure it's reflected in the book yeah retrospectives quite simply do them use the time to be honest and frank with a team of about Manchurian Monte pairings maybe some are not working well because up to the Euler learning styles meaning a process needs more rotation were less rotation among mentors on your team use retrospectives out as a place for mentors in a process to address assumptions address issues and expectations and then make some critical decisions to better protect the goals of The Apprentice the goals of the employer angles of program also important is a 2 way street because self-directed learning it can't be the only thing anymore the industry moves fast the demand for a top-notch developers is growing exponentially the expectation of the apprenticeship absolutely include self-directed study an apprenticeship exhibited desire arm to immerse themselves a learning and work hard but the burden of keeping the apprenticeship on track I can't just fall on The Apprentice the press the process needs to know that the approach it is equally important to the employer an apprentice generally lacks a deep graphs on their importance to the business and this is really unfortunate because unimpressed feels valued in their role has a very positive influence on the performance of the program apprentices décédé employers commitment to the Construx and to feel at the employer is an advocate in that a friendship that the learning investment isn't just important arm as the apprentice is just as important as the impressed becoming billable and moving into that role of developer holistic value is important so again in measuring the whole apprentice it's important not just for the employer but to help that enterprises gain confidence as they're working to bring up the coding skills for me personally being able to contribute to the team in other ways was a huge benefit in using some of my code skill anxieties and it was also critical in moving my focus from 1 of only got half in my going to OK am I doing what I need to do to continue progressing so remember I can't determine consider everything that makes up the value of an apprentice coding skills creative problem-solving personality and last but definitely East important developer apprenticeships is time because burn does not mean warp speed I saw a a lot of developers and premises as I was working on his talk and ask them to sell curiosity if they thought it was possible to reach senior developer status at 1 year and all of them gave me an emphatic No and all of them so the Neyman consider someone a senior close to that maybe not even for 2 or 3 years many said a lot more than that and why is that because there is no substitute for experience consider Malcolm Gladwell's outliers if you've read that in all the greatest athletes in musicians have 1 thing in common there wasn't an innate talent but rather a deliberate practice and enough time to get good like to the tune of 10 thousand hours for 10 years and Sarah kind ships of the Middle Ages lasting 7 years were plus 3 years and during and status before they're even eligible to apply as a master and centers of the modern apprenticeships that we talked about today but doctors Elektra tion's even tattoo artists bands years in learning a trade in mastering those associated skills developer apprenticeships even if we tap on the developer training program are likely to amount to 1 full year but what is it really about the short vs. long that's so important they lack of readiness why would I bother with a long apprenticeship over a short 1 I mean getting to the pump entirely the pump and salary why would I waste years if I could accomplish it in a matter of months conversely if I'm an employer why would I invest in the prospect of years over months what's in it for me how can I justify an investment of that size I think that learning to play the notes for an instrument is not the same as being a musician learning to play is that the 1st in arguably the smaller hurdle applying that skill over and over and over again gaining performance over time is what marks the difference between 1 who play instruments and 1 who can make music the intangible elements of communicating of by a feeling or reading something you off of an existing song that's the mark of a great musician and mean that runway at a business relationship between employer and apprentice and a common goal should be 1 of building a better developer a wealthy developer who can exercise autonomy and also integrate seamlessly with him in 18 a developer who stretches beyond just the task itself and exhibits thought leadership a creative developer capable of applying a systems view in solving the problem and vision in with the finish line looks like and how to get there and the apprentice who becomes this developer is a valuable asset and right now ignite the to get almost anywhere the and the employer who fosters this kind of practice is well positioned to retain them for the long term which is definitely worth the investment and certainly more economical so what's important in developer partnerships an agile approach and diligence in application the 2 way street put into where you wanna get out that doesn't just mean apprentice holistic value measure more than just the hard coding skills and lastly favor the marathon note coming in great developer it's not a sprint it's a marathon so let's find ways in which to construct apprenticeships better and less about spreading and more about long term commitment between teammates so talk about what's scary what's missing what's important in developer apprenticeships I hope that some of it was fresh perspectives arm but also promised you some ideas so here if you thought starters that I brainstormed with my team in some of them straight used to radical well then I hope that they at least plant a seed of ideation as you think about creating or adding to some of your apprenticeship programs study human adding structure here apprenticeships for 2 years panier print as well general to be obnoxious you wanna give them a pay increase after 6 months or 1 year for whatever reason great do it but don't change the title keep entitled as an apprentice for 2 years with an option to reapply for continued operation after they complete the program or if you feel like they're ready let began working off the old labor of 1 year as a developer on your team that's right started to a contract for 3 the Treaty of Friendship program like a product it the fabric of your business in the team make sure your team knows when they get higher with the yield that mentoring is part of the job and a sudden and give them the tools they need to be good at that job and conversely there actually expected to help foster and improve their product over time I think this is really important I think you need it seem to take some ownership and realize accountability and air pressure program for it to be successful higher teacher the teacher senior mentors what use the summers off I'm sure they would love to make consultant rates the common some workshops with your team they have to be developers necessarily but find someone who can help your team think about structure in long term curriculum and evaluations to support that curriculum and again some pointers on how to engages students of various learning styles and you don't know any teachers that reach out to a place like turning I they not our fingers you about teaching students the point being is don't under estimate the skill it takes to be good at teaching and so seek advice and invest in that including the idea of a journey man in year apprenticeship program but focus it internally so let me is have apprentice travel around the various teams even departments especially departments if applicable at your company encourage the development of skills outside of just writing code if you happen to be a large-scale prior company lots of different development teams give them time to bounce from team to team understand the varying dynamics and can figure out or maybe they would fit in best and if you're a small consultancy bring a new business meetings including in parts of the process that are not just about writing code that design research testing it is a well-rounded Princess can become quite valuable developer thank you if

Abstract We talk about bringing new developers "up to speed quickly." Imposter syndrome is bad enough, but often junior developers feel pressured to learn faster and produce more. Developers often focus on velocity as the critical measure of success. The need for speed actually amplifies insecurities, magnifies imposter syndrome, and hinders growth. Instead let's talk about how we can track and plan progress using meaningful goals and metrics.
