Abstract:
Have you noticed a difference between younger and older software engineers? Are you a senior engineer wondering how to attract, let alone mentor, the next generation of crafts(wo)men like myself? Or maybe you're a young new starter confused why those more experienced guys do software the way they do?
In this entertaining town hall meeting, I’ll share what my fellow millennials are thinking and talking about in the profession of software. Then my dad will share what he sees us taking for granted, and summarize how to avoid mistakes he's seen in his experience as an agile software coach (whatever that is) . We'll contrast things from career trends (the established"Knowledge Worker" versus the rising "Learning Worker") to architectures (yesterday's "platforms" versus today's "micro services").
Change is afoot, and whether you are a GenX-er, a Millennial, a Boomer, or somewhere in between, this interactive session will offer you insights for us working together.
Learning Outcomes:
  • What is the difference in CULTURAL context between Millennial, GenX, and Boomer software professionals.
  • How yesterday's TECHNOLOGIES informed older engineer's choices, and how today's technologies are changing that.
  • Which software PRACTICES come more naturally to Millennials, and which are missing.
  • What are the software CAREER paths senior engineers have taken, relative to Millennials.
  • What we can LEARN for each other for guiding our path as crafts(wo)men.
