Introducing “TechLab”, our most powerful tool for Software Developers Training

At Developers.Net we know our most valuable asset is the group of developers that work for us, which is why we do our best to keep them updated and in tune with the latest. However, in order to do that we believe that approaching challenges as a group is better than being left alone to the slow and tedious process of individual trial and error.

 

Along comes “TechLab”: a Heaven for our Software Developers

 

We know what the stereotypical software developer is like because we are developers ourselves. In general, we cherish our individuality, our independence, and most of all, our time, so committing to corporate group sessions would seem like the last thing we want in our schedules. However, our TechLabs are so much more.

 

Imagine a session in which you are joined by seasoned developers, all with different areas and levels of expertise exchanging ideas and learning from one another, helping each other to tackle obstacles in everyone's individual project, and bonding over mutual interest; we are indeed a rare breed, and finding kinship out there in the “real world” can be a powerful thing.

 

Once a month, we conduct a “TechLab session” with a different topic to be debated and discussed aided, whenever possible, by our top developers, including our very own CTO, Emilio Baez, and our CEO, Douglas Loyo; their expertise in every aspect of software development will be at your disposal. Then, we create a chat group to remain in constant contact, so we can ask and answer questions, propose trending topics for discussion, and network with other professional developers on both sides of the border. It’s a game changer.

 

This is No Reading Club, it’s a Software Development Peer Group

 

Whether we like to admit it or not, it can get lonely in the seclusion of our caves, especially when a highly frustrating challenge presents itself. What we do with ‘TechLabs’ is relieve our developers of the pressure of having to fend for themselves by creating a group of like minded individuals, all in charge of their own thing, but open to learning and sharing information. According to an article by Entrepreneur, peer groups (although they talk specifically about CEOs) are very helpful when it comes to helping with blind spots, offering access to resources, serving as sounding boards for ideas, and enabling people to learn from each other’s failures and successes, all the while offering the mental and personal support that can only be provided by people going through the same things day in and day out.

 

Techlabs have been so successful over the years that even people that have ceased to work for us have asked to be kept in the chat groups so they can continue to exchange ideas and network with valuable professionals.

 

This is only one of the many things that you will find at Developers.Net. We are a company of developers created by developers, with every detail we always knew was missing from development companies.
