Mentoring Developers is a podcast for new and aspiring software engineers and their mentors. In each information-packed episode, senior and junior software professionals talk about their first forays into programming, their struggles, their goals and passions, their thoughts on mentorship, actionable advice for newbies and their managers, and much more. This podcast is for you if you have ever struggled with or wanted to help someone with technical and career decisions, resources for learning, anxieties, fitting in, or achieving success.
A new or aspiring software developer is faced with a multitude of hurdles on her way to becoming a respected and accomplished member of the development community. Is there anything better than throwing them in the deep end of tight development schedules and hope they survive?
In many years of working with and mentoring new and aspiring software developers, Arsalan has noticed that newbies often struggle in silence and the software development industry has failed to provide a clear path for people to succeed and to understand their needs especially when it comes to minorities, women, and people with disabilities.
It's about time someone talked about these issues from the point of view of new developers. This podcast calls for empathy towards the inexperienced developer who may not fit the mold of a "brogrammer" but deserves to be treated as an asset rather than a liability.
