In this June 1st, 2017 presentation, Micah Wood discusses how to create a road map for growth, hone your craft, and stand out from the crowd.
As developers, we are always having to learn new things. We have to learn about new language features, the latest tools, and how to get our work done faster without sacrificing quality. Sometimes, we even have to learn new languages altogether. Often, the reason we don’t evolve our skills is because we don’t know how or we don’t have time. Whether you are trying to learn PHP for the first time, or are trying to figure out how to build and lead a team of developers, this talk identifies where you or your team members are in the learning process and what activities you should focus on and when in order to learn things quicker and more effectively.
