What do I do now? How to kickstart your new career as a Developer.

By Rachelle LeQuesne,

2017 installfest learning rails rails girls

One of the questions I often get asked after an Installfest or a Rails Girls event is “What do I do now?”

It’s a difficult question to answer comprehensively and succinctly in that moment. The answer may also vary with the relative skill of the person asking.

How we work at reinteractive

2015 community development dev hub installfest learning management personnel rails girls Remote Work

While growing reinteractive I have been asked many times how we operate. I've been asked this by prospective clients and by prospective staff. I thought it would make sense to write up a blog post covering the key points on how our developers and team work at reinteractive and what parts of our development process are important to us.

Having our entire team work remotely is a strong management point for us. Our remote team encourages focused work without the large distractions of an office environment. Of course, this means that you can't shout a question across the office, or go and interrupt another team member, we see this as a good thing. However, team communication matters so we have numerous Flowdock channels to communicate on each project. This has the added advantage of information being recorded, allowing for any team member to "get up to speed" on what is happening after a short absence by reading the log of what has been said.

Diversity in Technology Conferences

Some of you might know that reinteractive is going to be presenting RailsConfAU this year in Sydney, Australia. It's Australia's first Rails Conference and we already have some big names lined up to speak.

But today, I was in our company chat room and we were talking about another conference, one that a member of our team had seen a promotion for, where it appeared that all 28 speakers were men. In discussing this we were trying to come up with ideas to make sure that RailsConfAU had a wide range of speaker backgrounds to encourage more diversity in our industry.

Announcing the reinteractive Apprenticeship Programme

2014 community development dev hub installfest rails girls

Over the past year and a half, our InstallFest initiative has introduced more than 600 developers to Ruby on Rails. These developers have been able to move onto Development Hub, but we feel there is a gap. If you look at the job boards, there are a lot of opportunities for mid to senior level Rails developers, but a scarcity of junior level positions.

This presents a problem, how do we take these awesome beginning developers and build them into mid to senior level develops to grow our community? And how to do this efficiently?
