As a mentor for thoughtbot's Prime service, I've provided coaching to over 100 developers. In my talk, I'll share the questions I'm asked repeatedly, and how I answer them. This discussion will be targeted at beginner and intermediate developers striving to improve. Likely discussion includes: What should I do if I inherit an app with no tests? Any advice on how to switch to vim? How does one land her first Rails job? How does one land a better Rails job? How do I conquer the fear of letting others see my code? Am I underpaid? How do I balance integration and isolated tests? How can I make myself stick to TDD when the going gets tough? Plus, because it's me, we're gonna do some live coding. Take bad code. Make good. Happy times.
