• Free CV/Resume Workshop for Entry-Level and Junior IT Roles

    General Assembly Melbourne

    At this special event we’ll have Nabila Farhat, from the talent team at Square, facilitating a presentation and workshop on resume/CV writing for entry-level and junior developers. Nabila will start with a 20 minute presentation about the key aspects of a resume, what will draw a recruiters attention, what can trigger their unconscious bias when reviewing a resume, and an overview of how your resume is likely to change as your career progresses. This will be followed by a Q&A session, before a 90 minute workshop where you will be able to get help and guidance to prepare your resume to give you the best chance at gaining an interview. As the workshop nears its end some of the mentors from Code Mentoring will be available to talk about the roles you’re applying for and your suitability for them. This presentation and workshop will be tailored for those seeking entry-level and junior developer roles. To get the most value from the workshop we recommend bringing an editable, digital copy of your current resume; key points from ads for the type of roles you would apply for (eg skills requirements, role titles, type of company); and a willingness to think about how your existing skills can apply to these jobs. By the end of this workshop we hope you will have a good understanding of entry-level and junior IT recruitment in Australia, a resume that will help you get an interview, and confidence that the roles you’re applying for are attainable. After the workshop you are welcome to stay for the remainder of the normal Code Mentoring meetup, either to dive back into code or to continue working on your resume. As this is only the second formal Code Mentoring event we’d love your feedback. Tell us what we did well, what we didn’t do so well, and what you got out of the event. You can send us feedback on the Code Mentoring Slack group, to any of the organisers via LinkedIn, or even in person after the workshop. We will not be accepting guests to this event. If you have a friend who would like to come please get them to respond via Meetup. RSVPs will close at 5pm on Wednesday, 17th July. Please note: Neither Nabila, nor the organisers will be recruiting at this event. We will not be delving into interview skills either. Instead we will be doing everything we can to help you prepare a resume and identify appropriate jobs so you can get callbacks from recruiters and get the job interviews you want.

  • Free code mentoring - For all levels

    General Assembly Melbourne

    You've heard of coding, but it looks kind of complex, and you don't know where to begin. Or perhaps you've been game enough to try, you've downloaded an editor, wrote a few lines, but you're a bit confused. Maybe you're already well on your way, and just want to spend time in a happy community of developers (and want to share your passionate distaste of Internet explorer). Whatever you're level, this is the place for you... We run this meetup almost every week at General Assembly in Melbourne. Bring your laptop, a coffee, and come code in a relaxed and open setting with other developers. For those just starting out, there are mentors who will guide you from the very beginning, and train you each week to become a better web developer. For the more advanced, this is a great opportunity for you to learn more about new and upcoming technologies, contribute by helping and mentoring, or have your question about that weird bug answered. We focus mainly on web development, which includes (but not limited to!) HTML, CSS, Javascript, React and Node.js. Don't worry if you don't know what any of these are, you'll soon pick it up. So come down this Saturday with your laptop (don't forget your charger!) and join us in building and learning on the web! - Tristan Please note: By attending this Meetup you are agreeing to receive updates about news, programs, and special events from our venue partner General Assembly.

  • Presentation: MSA, TBD, DDD, TDD, BDD, WTF?

    General Assembly Melbourne

    Please note: Members who have RSVPd to this presentation will be given priority for the session, other Code Mentoring members are welcome to attend if space permits. If there is enough interest I will arrange a second presentation. This weekend I’ll be doing a presentation about microservice architecture, trunk based development, domain driven design, test driven development and behaviour driven development. This presentation is aimed at new and junior developers as an introduction to best practices that can be observed and practiced in development teams. The presentation will assume some knowledge around agile methodologies, and basic git concepts such as pull requests. If you want some help with these concepts I’ll be available at the normal Code Mentoring meetup on 15th June 2019 (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Code-Mentoring-Web-Development-Design/events/hpbprqyzjbtb/). To get the most value from this presentation you’ll need an understanding that “best practice” doesn’t always match corporate realities, a desire to learn and improve, and the ability to apply concepts to your particular skill-set. I’ll begin the presentation with a high level overview of each of the 5 concepts, and then wrap them all together to help you understand how they can be combined to make your development tasks easier. As this is my first ever meetup presentation I’ll be keeping the floor open to questions throughout the presentation, and I’m more than happy to discuss these concepts after the presentation or at future Code Mentoring meetups. I'd like to thank my employer, MessageMedia (https://www.messagemedia.com), for providing me with the time to create this presentation; and General Assembly (https://generalassemb.ly) for providing the venue. - Michael Please note: By attending this Meetup you are agreeing to receive updates about news, programs, and special events from our venue partner General Assembly.
