As we get closer to our Front Engineers event, we had the opportunity to catch up with our second guest speaker Tara Ojo (@tara_ojo). We wanted to find out a bit more about what we can expect from her talk ‘Junior.next()’ and who will get the most value from attending the event.
Tara is a software engineer at FutureLearn, a social learning company. She is a STEM ambassador and is passionate about encouraging and inspiring young people from diverse backgrounds to consider a career in tech.
Who do you think should come along and why?
Come along to the talks if you’re new to your career or if you work with junior developers in any capacity.
What do you think are the three most interesting questions that this event will answer?
Why do you think this presentation is important for people?
Career progression is an important part of all of our careers, I’ll be sharing insights into what kind of things you can be doing today to start developing your skills and moving forward in your career.
If you’re not a junior, it’s important for you to create a safe space to enable your junior colleagues to develop without judgment; this presentation will give you tips on how you can better support them.
Any advice for junior developers entering the industry?
Lots, come to the talk and find out!
We’ll also be joined at the event by Amanda Cavallaro (@chibichibibr) who will present her talk ‘Google Assistant: Interactions and Sentiments aiding Customers and Businesses’. You can read our interview with Amanda here to find out more.
