There has been an accelerated growth in the number of software engineers in Africa with varying degrees of experience. My talk will highlight some of the ways software engineers can open source their experience through various channels like writing or virtual mentorship to help young developers grow.
Open source has opened so many doors and lowered the entry barrier to becoming a successful programmer but becoming a world class software engineer requires a lot more than knowing how to write code. This is where experience comes in. Sadly, the majority of the growing community of software engineers have limited access to opportunities that can accelerate their growth to becoming world class. There are fewer internship opportunities, startups are not patient enough, agile teams are fast paced and experienced developers are too busy. This talk seeks to highlight various ways software engineers and tech enthusiasts can leverage on available digital channels to share their hard earned experiences by way of peer-to-peer mentorship, virtual mentorship, delivering lightning talks, supporting tech-based user groups, sharing of post or articles to grow the tech ecosystem by educating more developers on none technical topics like Time Management, Work Ethic, Finances, and other soft skills
