What People are Saying

John Plummer - Head of Development, Reevoo

"Circles of learning"

What I have appreciated most is being able to ask very specific questions about real situations and getting actionable feedback and also recommendations on tools and reading that would be useful in similar future situations.

I am always slightly disappointed when the session ends!

John Plummer - Head of Development, Reevoo
Nayur Khan - Head of Platform Engineering, Quantum Black

"A new world of skills and tools"

The Junior Developers workshop was incredibly insightful and very well run. It aimed to brainstorm through unconscious biases and fears around recruiting junior talent, and provide useful and practical tips to overcome them.

Nayur Khan - Head of Platform Engineering, Quantum Black
Arif Shanji - Head of Software, Kano

"Learning at pace"

I think the sessions are brilliant and I'm learning a lot. There's a good mix of participants at different levels. We're going at a good pace with bite-sized material.
