Panel Discussion: The Developer’s Path

How companies and developers can work together to achieve reciprocal growth

Finding skilled developers is a challenge faced by many companies today, equally, many junior developers want to level up and continue to grow. Is there a mutually beneficial solution?

To get a handle on this challenge, a panel of specialists will debate the topic and answer questions from the floor:

  • Steve Alexander, Senior VP of Technology at Ascential, a FT 250 Company. Steve has experience building an in-house development team, including junior developers.
  • Sam Morgan, Head of Education at Makers Academy. Sam oversees the training that has taken over 1000 developers on a journey from their first line of code to entering the jobs market.
  • Sroop Sunar, Developer at Peg. Sroop landed her first job as a junior developer at thoughtbot in 2014, having spent 3 months learning to code, and is now working startup-side as a full stack developer.
  • Chad Pytel, CEO, thoughtbot. Chad has built apprentice.io, an open source framework to aid companies wanting to accelerate the learning of their junior developers.
  • Maria Khait, Organiser and Coach, Rails Girls, London. Maria regularly runs sessions helping hundreds of women looking to learn and improve their coding skill.

The panel will be moderated by Margaret Gold. Margaret is Science Community Coordinator at the Natural History Museum, in the Biodiversity Informatics team. Previously she worked as Director of the Mobile Collective and ran the mobile developer Over the Air hack day event for 8 years.


As well as the panel discussion, there will be plenty of time to meet and chat with other attendees and the speakers over nutritious refreshments, craft beer and wine.
