the end of his and home welcome everyone thanks for coming to my talk quick notes I had planned to thread a bunch of clothing related ponds throughout this talk the dawn I don't know if I would have been able to knit together here talk about mentorship so instead allow me to introduce myself on my work chemical stitch fix my name is John Wallace and stitch fix we help our clients become their best cells best cells we are personalized styling service and we do some cool stuff we do some cool stuff with machine learning and data science and we use some tools that you may be
familiar with we use go react angular of some rails some reaction water rails and a lot of reading and were hiring so if you want to learn more about our company or what kind of things we do in the engineering department you can get interpret meeting come see aspire to an example so today I'm
here to share my thoughts about mentorship with you and appreciate you coming up and this is a real specific torque but we talking about techniques and strategies and philosophies that it we employed will drastically accelerate your career and your skill growth of the planned for
today is to discuss how the 1st what exactly mentorship is and then we talk well why you might be in interested in following doing it and then we'll go into some details the how of of of of good approaches and actual tactics to be effective so let's talk
about the lack of mentorship can be formal
that you can be something that you do on a regular cadence it can be scheduled that you could have 3 minute meetings every week or bi weekly but can also be something that
is informal and intermittent I can be something as ad hoc where your minty reaches out to you when they have something to talk about something
that I think is very important for to be effective is that it should be altruistic now that it's possible you mentoring
is part of your job so you are receiving some money along with that so as technically you're getting paid but what I think is key here is that you're sincerely invested in the results of your men t and how they do and how they grow so I think of that as being altruistic so but it's not about the money I
your sincerely invested that despite what other motivators door and that's really important
if you are getting paid but outside of a job it's probably not a mentorship relationship it's more like a coach or possibly have some type of teacher I and In when you mentoring you're
not focused on AppleTalk growth in a particular scale is a little bit broader than a little bit larger you're looking at the the longer term view so that leads me to talk about the
monte in what they bring to the table and I think it's really important to realize that they bring the fuel for the relationship and they bring the spark but as the interwar your job is to be accelerated by your accelerating their learning in their development so I will talk about this more later as I think this is probably 1 of the most important aspects of mentorship and that's why give the animated to if I also taking
a longer-term view of their career growth of the skills that they're trying to grow in your future focus for your t but you have to have a vision of you'll have to have a vision but it's nice to have a vision of where they might go in their career or where how they may grow the skill set it may not be the vision that they ultimately aligned with over the long haul we're helping them develop their vision more quickly was going to the why why might
you want to do something like this are 1 of the key aspects that are that I found a lot value as it allowed me to practice my leadership skills in a very low stakes environment the consequences are low you get many
opportunities to cost prep along the way catastrophic failure is very unlikely but and this is a great opportunity to practice those leadership skills in the small are the stakes are low but you may
lay out a plan of growth for your minty let's say you're meat developing somebody who is new to rails and new to programming in general they may decide that you may sort of share out with them the specifics of how our industry is laid out in terms of career growth you could talk about back in developer affronted developer A UX or or maybe you I'd designer and this person may indicate interest in 1 or the other listed side back developer and over time maybe a couple weeks they've defined the gravitating more towards the front and that's OK that's an opportunity for you to reflect and reset your expectations as to what they may need to focus on I just get proper
opportunities to practice your listening skills people really say exactly what they mean it can use a lot of words and go on and on and on when just a few may suffice this is pretty normal this is called casual conversation and it can be challenging to understand with somebody is trying to get what point they're trying to get to you but this is often how knowledge is constructed for us as individuals but if you look we
will practice as an entry will practice active listening skills and that'll help you be more adept at identifying what someone's intent as in this is incredibly valuable and no matter what sphere we use it in this valuable whether you're speaking with executives peers co-workers family of children all all these things are incredibly uh will you can see understand what's amazing to get to before they get their allows you ought to be more effective in your communication
which is key as I mentioned before casual conversations maybe meandering is someone constructs their understanding of a new idea whether that's a framework and application of a programming language constructs and a programming language in general in 1 reason 1 reason for this is that experience folks are often like the vocabulary to know what what they want they may know what they want and as you may know what they want they don't know exactly how to express that I have your
problem like that where you're trying to solve a problem and you want to see users search and help you find a solution and you can't but few weeks ago I was attempting to automate the installation of a Linux distribution and called that in and I knew that this is possible and I found out how to do this for Red Hat rather relatively quickly but I struggle to find the exact phrase that would give me the answers are needed for w I search for phrases like our automated install or keyboardless or
keyword was insulation than having locking it took a couple days spread out over time before I found that the correct phrase was unattended installed that led me to something called deviance and this fantastic this is a problem that uh that all of us have experienced in suffer development and and other fields just not knowing the right the right words but another challenge is that
express folks may not know what they don't know this is uh Donald Rumsfeld he was the Secretary of Defense in 2002 and here's a quote
is applicable here like can read it directly but but he talks about the unknown unknowns and experience is what allows us to take those unknown unknowns and turn them into known unknowns that up a good friend of mine of Hamlet Vickers are given excellent talk
about this in great detail called crossing the canon of packed cognisance it is a mentor the often assisting mentees in helping them I turn those unknown unknowns into known unknowns and way she phrase it was you you helping folks get to conscious incompetence where they're actually what they don't know and that's incredibly important I highly recommend a talk by the way I'm
so mentoring others also allows you to refine your conceptual knowledge and strengthen your vocabulary around a particular domain so you may ask a question where you think you know the answer and then you go to explain it they become more confused than you may realize that your explanation or maybe your understanding is either not as refined as you would like it or not as clear as you would like or maybe they're coming at it from a different angle and they have a different way of conceiving and when you bridge that gap of understanding between you 2 you will find that you've augmented your own understanding maybe added a new way to conceive of that particular topic additionally is also possible and other they a different words and you expect as well see also expanding your vocabulary all I could think of this is is is knowledge is being this this formless void the sum of all knowledge in were doing here collaboratively is turning that form was into a labeled map but it's also
possible that they may ask about something which that that you'll nobody thing about and you have to do some research animals by you or some new knowledge
uh and in the next they can also inspire us with their efforts so they can remind us how how much work it takes to acquire the knowledge and for me as someone who's been involved in the community for a while and in the sulfur developer for a few years I find it it's a good reminder to stay humble to realize how far I've come and recognize the effort that it takes to get there and appreciate that and others so let's talk about how
unfair getting into the details 1st thought about
how you might find in the but this is pretty straightforward but whether you're in the functional
programming apprenticeship mentorship or any other topic there's a collection of folks on the internet probably share the same interest so the key is to find those folks on Internet whether a slack organization of forum IRC channels and go to those places and be helpful but in real life you can go to me that's and hackathons and find folks were also getting into soffit element of many years ago I attended a start Weekend and I remember meeting someone there and this is my 1st we can ever trying to write software but little that I know that 3 or 4 years later I would be working with the person and I found incredibly inspiring that he came to start up we can with no experience started teaching himself gave talks local meetups I was able to help model along the way specifically on the weekend but later on we work together but so when you go to these places where there's online or in real life you wanna talk about your whatever your passion about maybe you can talk about mentorship its value to you even presented maybe local up on or
whatever your passion maybe if a star mentorship or something as some other topic is wanna talk about that share your expertise Sharia challenges that's incredibly important shareware you're struggling and that you'll find folks at
that if you're available hopefully others you'll find that other folks will recommend you as a resource to 2 potential mentees you would develop your brain is a caring helpful person whether about a topic which your passion about or not you still wanna develop their brand and that may also right that help folks recommend perspective mentees to conceive so another avenue that I like to touch on is a children volunteering you can go coach and a chess club the local chess club at a local school or robotics club or some type of athletics there's all of others boys and girls clubs there's at numerous organizations out there they would be happy to have somebody come out and help out and mentoring younger children which is something I did when I was in college I coached soccer from kids use 3 I 2 and 3 year olds and enforce world all its you 19 in what you find the challenges communication across all boundaries and if you can communicate with a 3 year old who still struggling to acquire language in general you can communicate with almost anyone so that it's also laced low-stakes they're such great learning but learned little engines of learning that that they will the whole course correct for you faster than you can for them but it gives you great opportunity to practice so 1 important things in
my mind is that you let them in the driver relationship if you're driving a rulership that's probably not the right way to go
about it so you meant he may have objectives and goals are they may not and that is completely right so they may have a problem a talk through when you meet up but they may not and that's OK as well on you'll have to be afraid to reach out schedule and there's 1 exception where I think it's OK
you know that it's important reach that on as if you feel that the the relationship may be fading a little bit but I when I was in my research for this talk I came across this quote about was apt way to put it if you feel stating it's not a bad thing reach answer hey looks like a minute meeting value or you're too busy and that gives them a chance to say hey I've been too busy I was still like to me with you to future date or maybe they say you know well yes some of the other obligations are other priorities have become more of an overwhelming and I'm I need to cut the short for wanna give you waited provide some closure to that experience so I gave my talk
proposal I put some fancy terms in there was inquiry-based learning so they could be made the idea behind this is that the mentee is driving but you're trying to keep them on the road and make sure they're not they don't any accidents er travel down any dead ends and 1 way to do that is to follow this philosophy and it's probably a pedagogical method but that was developed in the sixties as a response to the traditional forms of instruction we sit down and you memorize a bunch of information ends up that that for this philosophy can be got as thought of as a constructivist philosophy and ideas that for somebody learned something you want them to generate information and make meaning of it based on the personal experiences suppose rote memorization this so this indicates that they the learner is actually participating in the process not just a a receptacle of information
so it's very important remember that inquiry-based learning is experiential they should be experiencing things along the way and I find it experiences most often sticky end stays with somebody and has value when there's some effort is expended to go along with that another thing you would do is
winning cree basis ask questions you can think about this is this is the Socratic method so lithium the see with a question about routs in so my 1st question is would be focused on determining exactly with the concern it's this in a static concerned about the the uh using RESTful routing and this is something specific like be solver the visit to the guy the rails guides in the rout section by you would determine exactly what the challenges and the goal is thereby ask these questions is hoping to facilitate autonomy for
your minty at end we want to ultimately get into a place where they can take those unknowns unknowns and turn them into known unknowns on their own but we want to know the autodidactic which is another way of saying we want the self teaching and use less and less over time so some other 4 attributes of inquiry-based learning of the 1st is a new being art your feaLDA in an endeavor from your ability distinguish signal from noise is often very challenging but hasn't yet been developed so because of this it is easy to be led astray be confused with important that the information the learning is not deceptive from another good friend of
mine police rather given excellent talk about this are called Amelia Bedelia lens to code and she talked about beginner confusions that are very common I remember when I 1st heard learning rails but this is something I experience and I struggle to distinguish between the the exit you will ranks command and the rails and the rails execu will command in what those things did and I think now since then in more recent versions of rails we've tried to address this so to some degree but that's 1 of the important things and is that increa based for somebody be driving the process for that the information be structured in as toward as part of what we're doing we're provide where poor
guiding them through that structure and
that there was a great blog posts in the summer of 2013 on the code fellows blog and this is a diagram in US original stressed out on that this is the diagram of everything that they indicated you need to know to be ineffective full-stack rails developer and I really want Americans in 2013 and that's changed things have changed as been 4 years since that's happened so what did they talk about why learning real hard and we can see why there's some value in some mentorship had to help folks navigate this and so how much times of someone spend when they're learning the command line this is the type of question that we as a mentor you will help in my opinion you wanna make that very small viewing given the basics of the new to soften Bellman you may show them that the terminal just a couple commands using like CD and things of that nature on and the reason
that the the 3rd point is that you wanna make sure that the knowledge of the habits transferable so they're learning how to develop software they can use that in other languages on they're learning how to use the command line that's the last forever but also the 4th point is that in the real as that of you want that structured knowledge out to also be easily retrievable of 1 of the values that I really appreciate about our community is that we do place a relatively high value on documentation and not Harbison across the war but we had to have the fancy reels guides which is something I still used today
so once again the specifics for doing inquiry-based learning with him in the time and what the weather the process might look like this we want them to devise their own questions so again as they were mentoring someone in rails and they 1 applies a discount to something that's a product and and maybe 1 change the sales price and they come to to you asking for help modeling that what I think you might wanna talk about the different approaches with them you to talk about the value in column I'm having logic in the controller and the talk but the value and benefits of having the logic in the model the mean words being called from a controller you could talk about the value using callbacks or talk about the by using service objects by ideas by asking them questions you want expose them to a bunch of ideas and in facilitating going and doing some research on the residue research it may be that they are going out and looking up blog post or maybe the spiking of an approaching trying out the sea will looks like and then after they done you and come back to sort of explain what's going on and share that experience with you and you hoping to find that they're able to explain it are there reasoning in thought process through the research they've done this is a great opportunity to facilitate their growth with respect to how to find things on the Internet that may be challenging as well and then finally want them to develop an opinion about it this is incredibly important because this is where the really constructing their knowledge and finding a way to to to imprint and when their brain and retain an alarm on over a longer threshold time you what the net and add Nicaragua that makes sense to us so this isn't prescriptive is just a general guideline and so a very you can have there can be no loops in this where you cycle through the 1st couple steps a couple times that's normal so annexing want talk is different
you learning and this is a fancy term for teachers that they use to talk about the fact that children learn in different ways which we can generalize and to the fact that people learn in different ways people have different learning styles we all have different strengths and different weaknesses specifically we all have different zones of proximal development this is another fancy term that was developed by a Russian who named level the got sky and it is the difference between what a learner can do and what what what a learner can do without help so here's a great of an
image that it shows that visually if you're a visual learner own admission share that up on the outer ring we have at the learner may not be it would be yet maybe they can develop Facebook on their own but in in the middle there is this set of task and challenges were mental or Mantini tackle those and they may need some help along the way and then in the inner circle you have where a learner can do to accomplish the task on our own in our job is to fill almond tea with tasks and challenges make sure the focus on the right task the right challenges that are in that middle tier we will make sure this task are not too difficult 1 make sure they're not too easy we want them to be just right to facilitate the growth another thing I
ask yourself about your minty is whether they're an exploratory learner there's many who likes to go to tutorials how much freedom do they need in the process of that will change over time so this isn't a question that you and ask once and then it stays answers are they comfortable pairing with they prefer to work alone to they like to think out loud these all portant questions to ask yourself when you're thinking about how you can most effectively help them and I mentioned this earlier but I think it's the key thing is goes back to the key thing is the accelerate we're going talk about more and on but I wanna
reinforce some core in this to the signs of stress and to and to recognize when someone is ready to throw in the towel and give up and maybe new repre vertical break it I can over stress the importance of
this when knowing when you're to a booster complement or a sympathetic ear knowing when they're ready for a bigger challenge or when they're ready for constructive feedback is incredibly important so again
you the accelerant another way to think about this is that you
may be the bellows to the fire remember there that their the fuel on the spot and we're providing air but to help accelerate their growth if we give too much air if we give to challenge that too large we can blow up that spark and burn them out right up or if we don't have enough there we can stop then them of the oxygen they need to be effective so wanna provide the right amount at the right time and that's sort of the thesis of this talk so I had some general for by
someone undercover as well but I talked in the beginning about it being altruistic and you being sincerely invested in their in their goals in their efforts on but also think a relation doesn't to be reciprocal and the reason why is that you're learning from those of them as well if you're gonna be consistently working with them over time there has to be some value there you're getting back out of that and again you're giving without an expectation of receiving anything but if the relatioships gonna last over the long haul you'll find your helping each other grown becomes a positive feedback loop 1 of the cool things about working with someone who is less experienced is that there's something called beginner's mind and richer Schneemann recent recently wrote a blog posting a week or so ago about a typo that has existed for 4
years I think he said it was underwent over 19 revisions in this in some documentation if he had written by a we have had been seen by multiple editors and it was not part I wasn't caught until someone new to suffer development was reading this posting cot by in this block was he goes in the details around it is a small typo but it really highlights the fact that the beginners are struggling to distinguish between signal noise and but their captive focused that focuses they bring to it is a much higher level of than we do typically is an experienced person we are taking shortcuts this is normal but it's something to remind us of the value that focus that is important to think about I idea value of that and I find it to be reciprocal on you also
want to think about their work ethic that's very inspiring to me are they're working through the signal noise again that's it's it's a monumental when you 1st get started if you haven't had the opportunity to enter someone and you certainly they will ask a lot of questions and you but why are you asking a question in meeting like a 0 yes of course that makes sense but what you see here the interpretation that you might wanna take on so they're constructing a knowledge regularly with your help in their efforts to do so are very inspiring other struggling with the challenges of the magic phrase in the silly typo that when I 1st started on developing software and I did not have someone who's more experience the you have to fight through on your own so as inventory you can really greatly accelerate the growth so
be inspired by the efforts and tenacity recognize the greatness for what it is but let would your efforts to be better and to do better also the core and the cool
thing is that your mentees are going to explore more technology than collectively then you can do on your own and you wanna take advantage of that effort you want to allow it to inform your opinions and grow your respect for their efforts on your guidance on dimensions to consider when exploring new technologies can help them out a great deal but they're gonna come back and report back and say hey I when investigated this new tool called J. query and it's a lot better than us to practice whatever the other than the other jobs library was at the time and at 1st came out on so when my friend the person that I heard through his career Trish transition the technology tells Miller time about the new stuff he's working with in his his career is now diverge that's a perfect example of facilitated his growth into rails and Ruby and now he's regularly doing closure and functional programming and he comes back and shares a lot of that information with me I ended and additionally is he's also it's my professional network that's growing as well so that's another value that you can get out of that I think is
important at on this you have to into the whole person we talked about Addis hookers on a particular skill is usually in the context of a larger picture and if someone is stressed out learning is impacted but when you're meeting with your men t you want to avoid transactional relationships you want to avoid that saying OK which occurred problem is solved that was move on you have to think about the bigger picture on medium in he mentioned about some problems that they were having with a significant other or maybe they had a problem with the pact or maybe they're trying to sell the house all these things will impact their ability to effectively grow up because they can retain information stressed out this is normal but this is a picture of a zebrafish
and there was a study that some scientists did where they trained the zebrafish enough and they are maize for 14 days with a food reward and then they introduced some stress and then put them through the test and they found that it drastically impaired their ability their spatial and uncued memory on if you do it is acquiring knowledge and also the stress you receive their level backtrack load and fall off where you may have expected to be in the past and that's normal so it's important to realize that when you lend a sympathetic year at those types of moments it can be drastically impactful in terms of their ability to retain information and maybe the process and the working but which
brings us to how do you do that how do you make sure addressing those concerns but we this is something that I've heard about and numerous different avenues in my life where was offered element or coaching of the concept of active listening and it's important enough to reiterate if you have heard about before really go through the steps and the 1st thing is you wanna pay
attention and this is something that I consider myself when I'm having conversations with anyone where's my children or my wife or co-workers at work that I wanna make sure I'm looking at the 2 speaker directly I'm framing of myself to hear exactly what they're saying and try to put aside my distracting thoughts so just like Our mentees may be less effective if their stress out the same thing applies to myself so I wanna make sure I'm balance before I go into meeting with someone at the
environmental factors that are going to distract you wanna try to lessen those if you're a person gets distracted by side conversations may be done me with them in a coffee shop on you wanna make sure that you're able to focus on their body language and then you wanna show the
you're listening so I find that focusing on these nodes as I'm working for the working with folks and you know I've been doing this for for 5 years 6 years I I still think about go back these to help me remind myself to do these things as I'm talking to
him and I'm trying to use my own body language to make sure I'm conveying to them that I'm paying attention but I will not occasionally i'll make sure
smile on and it would make sure my my
body posture is opened to them but I've worked in tune cramped rooms it with folks at times what I've been entering them and I'll make sure that enable us to by chairs that I'm facing them by directly and my shoulders are relaxed and I'll have my arms crossed even if it's cold those little cues I think about the things that add up you know they add up over time to make a big difference
you also incursions speak with boron broke vocal cues saying yes uhhuh indicates that your listing in year following along to what they're saying makes you wanna provide feedback it's a good
idea to reflect back to them what they're saying and summarize what I'm hearing is your so you're saying that you're struggling with restaurants and you think you wanna do this 1 off ad-hoc routing and let's talk about that or sounds like you're saying that you don't like model specs because of x y and z taking property reflect back what they're saying is helping them know what how they're communicating is giving them an opportunity to course correct in the conversation in the end you ask
questions along the way to it and you know what you mean when you say that i is is this exactly what you mean when you're talking about that the root problem that we're having if you summerize their their comments periodically it's a good idea you know you're not interrupting
then what you're deferring judgment your clarifying in trying to the to finesse what they're saying to their and their intent on interrupting is a terrible idea and I think that in our career it's very is is a forcing function in that computers are very pedantic so we tend as Sofitel appears to become more pedantic over time this is my personal hypothesis and so it's important remember that when you're mentoring someone this is not the time for botanic bar for pedantic cism you actually want deferred judgment make sure you understand exactly what they're saying if you're interrupting to say well at well actually it's not quite that your your limiting but the full understanding of their message and you're probably frustrating them along the way to and make sure they finish saying what they need to say and that that that that before you're asking hard questions on the death the donor up with counter arguments so you out when you do get the
opportunity to provide feedback would be open candid and honest telling someone of false superlatives a false problem is not as helpful as giving them the harder trees and we also wanna make sure you're winsomely string out they may make a lot of small mistakes they may confuse rails and rakes commands but there may be a bigger foundational issue that's more important it's a good idea to to address those in small amounts line and to balance out the constructive criticism with compliments C 1 lecture to you Sir your opinions respectfully I while you're doing that others the concept of the golden rule way tree others how you would like to be treated and that works was the time but I like a rule book adnexal above that which is treat them how they would like to be treated remember each person is individual we all have a different strengths and weaknesses of the best way to know what that is is to ask would you like some feedback on a scale of 1 to 10 how constructive would you like me to be here how can it would you like me to be and sometimes you can ask union help you solve this problem or would you like me just to listen to try and the sympathetic on but it never hurts to be explicit about that stuff so on the bonus round that's that that
come along with the from the minotaur perspective but I want to talk a little bit about being a mint tea
but to fill it out so but how do you find them into or if you're looking for 1 the key thing here
is know where your own streaks strengths and weaknesses are as the same side of the coin as in into or our how do you find out what those are the key I 1 key thing you can do is you can ask right you can go and ask your friends your family members your co-workers your peers hey how might how my doing as a manager how my doing as a co-worker what you find most valuable about my work efforts and collect the feedback I did this recently and I reach out to a bunch of folks from and I was very impressed with the breadth of the feedback that I got was very interesting to me is that there was a consensus from all these folks who were in who were not necessarily knew each other about certain challenges they strings of this all it was great to hear about the strengths and it was also humbling to hear about the challenges and and 1 of things they said is how you might spread yourself too thin sometimes I feel that I don't get enough value our our attention from you and so that something and I've got an opportunity work on so what you know yourself and you know where you want to work on whether train or bigger strings or media weaknesses will
make sure that you think of someone you respect but is this person a highly technical CTO or you looking up to someone who is an individual contributor is very effective at what they do the humble there always knowledgeable sales have time for folks begin yet they somehow produce a great amount of work at the same time but are they a gregarious co-worker who can speak anybody and negative they grow their their professional network with these or their project manager who asked actually questions that keeps the work flowing across multiple different teams ensuring that everybody always has something that an important and relevant to do what you think of that other person is very straightforward i have to do is ask that you may ask for a formal relationship you may ask you may wanna start small ask for help with a particular problems for a test the waters out on you may ask for regular meetings our new ASR ideas is not a bad idea to start off the complement hey I really like how you x y and z and I would like to learn more from you I'm having this problem do you have some feedback for me on that I that can be effective way to go next
on emission touch on remote mentoring because we work in of the industry where we can do that and and is very similar to what
we were a lot of things are a somewhat weary talked about but a couple things or specific all 1 is that whenever you can refer the higher fidelity communication medium if you can do video if you can mean person that's great you can't I try to do it over video chat and if there's a lag in the the the audio and video in you 1 this good audio on if you're working on code together you wanna do some have a screen sharing of that makes the meetings a lot more effective on and when you're talking especially for his talking voice nature smile helps you enunciate and it comes across in occasion and then it's also 1 of those things where your physical response will affect your mood that so maybe if you were quite excited about the process before smiling will get you there over the course the course the conversation on the next thing I want to point out is to picture to maximize whatever perimeter using to communicate with a few communicating with them but if you're commuting or the phone away from a computer so you can be distracted icon this cheating on folks if I'm working smarter remotely and I start typing or something like that I no longer giving my full attention and I'm really I'm not giving up doing justice to that communication by that moment my giving of not doing justice to them as a person so if you are using a tool like Skype or Google hangouts if you maximize that and maybe shutdown notifications that's a great idea to stay more focused so early in
the talker left out 1 important reason why you shouldn't talk and I wanted to cover that before we wrapped up and this is your call to action so
you're at a Rails conference and whether this is your 1st conference orifice rules conference on 10th Conference on whether you have 10 minutes of experience at 10 years of experience on the growth of this particular community owes a great debt and measurable that to be open source software community there's many folks have put in that many years of effort and you may not be a person who's interested in doing that interim back to the community via soffit element or documentation and that's OK 1 of things you can do is we shall how a Ruby friend and you don't have to be an expert to do this you want to be perfect in mentoring mentorship is a skill just like any other and it takes time to become more adept at it and so you did you can just be 1 step further beyond then the person the mentoring and that works out OK as well so
that's sort of my talk I wanna make sure cover some credits and thanks for quick before I go I wanna think before Athens Coffee Club and Athens tech organizations for allow me to give earlier versions of this talk or think stitch fix for allowing me to give this talk is well under me the time to work on it and then the family who I cajoled and tossed into a single we also gave earlier versions of these talks
on a good which links here to folks up there that the talks the reference the blog was the reference and some other resources that a reference for material throughout but is a any have any questions that's a great question so the question was what I look for when I'm looking at a company to see if the support of mentorship is that agree with it but it's yeah that's a great question so I started to such fix the last October and this is sound is going to sound like I'm showing a little bit but I guess I lied when I got to the excited about it but I look at the I look at their own their job descriptions and I don't just look at my particular job description the job that I'm interested in at the time to look across all of them up and read them and say OK what are they asking about where they talking about in terms of their values are they valuing people 1st and that's that's incredibly important to me and so that's how I choose a job and also m do little bit of a socking so if there's folks who were on the careers page you can go check out their social profiles and determine whether will kind folks those folks see if this 1 well and it doesn't mean that you have to buy said that necessarily have to find the perfect fit you in my opinion you're looking for openers and you're looking for alignment of 5 1 is the right job for you but I heard of a company and slack organization that I'm a part of where they're advertising for foci you could come on board and you could be a and they would trade junior developers on but it comes along with a contract and if you leave before the end of 2 years they want to pay back a certain amount of money and so in my mind and this may be perfectly acceptable avenue for junior Belper if they find that need that fits the context I don't know if they need how hard how you know how dire the need is for a position on but in my mind the fact they're saying hey there's a transactional aspect to this relationship is a red flag if I were in a position where I really needed a job no to be go into it out at least going to with eyes wide open so those are the types of things I'm looking for the question thank you that answer your question of who the questions the cool thanks again for coming i really appreciate it again if you reach out to me find their funds over in the example that the the
