What we'll do

It's that time again, friends! JuniorDev is back at our awesome sponsor & host Zendesk this month we'll be diving into config management and followed by 2 talks around Junior Developer jobs and interviewing!

Talks

*******************************
Configuration management: using code and discipline to keep your environments consistent
*******************************
Speaker: Matthew Segal
https://mattsegal.github.io/#automata

Have you ever found a bug in prod, which wasn't caught earlier because of a missing folder, library, or file permission? It sucks! This talk goes over some practices and tools that you can use to keep your environments consistent and share knowledge with the rest of your team.

Matt is a full-stack web developer who has spent several years banging his head against his keyboard (professionally).

*******************************
A Recruiter's Guide to the Galaxy
*******************************
Speaker: Kate Illsley

How to highlight your personal brand to get that interview, then ace it.

This talk is for you if you’re trying to find your first job, want to move into mid level or you’re wanting to get a promotion in your current company.

Based on feedback from Junior Dev and DDD I'll be including lots of examples of what Melbourne Dev Managers look for in CVs, code tests, and how you conduct yourself throughout the process.

Kate Illsley is a Senior Recruiter at Method Recruitment, specialising in Software Development. Volunteer at VIC ICT for Women working on the Grad Girl program for uni girls in STEAM. Hackathon organiser at Startup Weekend.

*******************************
How To Pass A Code Challenge
*******************************
Speaker: Adel Smee

As an Engineering Manager at Zendesk the most impactful element of Adel's role is hiring. For people that have never interviewed for a developer role before, the code challenge part of the hiring process can be mysterious. Adel will help us pull back the curtain on How To Pass A Code Challenge. She has also been a coding teacher, lived through the startup life and also worked for Lonely Planet!
