Starting your journey as a programmer can be daunting and overwhelming. There is so much to learn, so many contradicting sources of information, and so many different opinions about everything. Most of the time we don't get the answers we need or want, but we get vague options that don't really help us all that much. In this talk I discuss the problems we face when teaching others, the problems we face as an industry in a disparity between juniors and seniors and how we can vastly improve the way in which we teach our peers and educate our juniors.

Very entertaining talk! Liked the anime theme, well chosen. IMO it could have been spread out more (most was in the beginning). There were good strong points on how to improve learning and teaching, but it felt a bit light. I loved the PR review example, maybe put 1 or 2 more like them in.

The talk was funny, the advice was good. There were some concepts that could have been explored more. The delivery was really good. Many aspects of this were really relatable. Five stars.

Very well presented. The insights were a bit basic, but perhaps that is just what this audience needed.

The anime made it a light talk IMO, the other pictures made it clear also.
Good talk

Nice talk. Was there almost a reference to Battle Royal? ;)

Anyway, wanted to leave two tips, you probably know them, but just in case. Dryfus Learning Model (see Dan North) and Shu-Ha-Ri (see Alistair Cockburn).

Really nice talk, well delivered, and with lots of practical takeaways. The amount of real content felt a bit low though, mainly because of the first 15 minutes or so mainly treating anime. Apart from that, I think this talk was great, just would have liked more of this!
