I teach, therefore I learn (by Juhis)

There are many ways to improve your skills as a developer. Teaching programming is an awesome but bit under-appreciated one.

Becoming a senior developer is about so much more than just technical competency. It’s about helping others succeed, it’s about becoming a leader and it’s about being a good communicator with users, clients and teammates.

In this talk, I will share how 6+ years of programming teaching has made me a better developer in the core understanding of topics, communication, and perspective as well as reveal all the additional perks of joy, diversity, and making friends.

Juhis is a web developer and community builder from Futurice and the founder of Turku :heart: Frontend who wants to help make tech more accessible to everyone. He’s been teaching programming in various courses and workshops during the past 6 years.
