*Supporting Each Other: Growth for Juniors and Seniors*
Bringing Junior developers into your team can be a challenge. But mentoring can benefit both sides. Come and learn how juniors and seniors can support each other and grow together.
*Data Ethics – Is this a hype?*
I’m paranoid by nature and a dystopian debater, so I looked closer at the discussions around Data Ethics for a while. I believe we have the choice to choose which direction we want our future to go in. You’re going to get a quick summary of what’s going on in this area, and a space to discuss solutions. Let’s talk.
Lara Martin is a self-made Android developer based in Berlin. Her passion for Android made her transition from her background in science to software development. Her dream is to make apps more accessible for everyone. @lariki
