Episode 19 – What’s it like to be a guest on Mentoring Developers? Sarah Mei special!

Hello dear listeners! I’m your host Arsalan and I am really glad you could join me in Episode 19. This episode will be different from the first 18 episodes and we will look back at the way the podcast has gone in 2015 and where it’s going in 2016.

If you have listened to past episodes, you may have heard me talk about doing panel discussions with a diversity of opinions from people at different experience levels and backgrounds. Well, now the time is right to alternate between in-depth and thoughtful interviews that you love so much with these panel discussions that are badly needed. We need to understand each other better in order to create better professional environments for everyone and it always starts with open and honest discussions. I am excited about these discussions and I am sure many of you are as well.

Please let me know if you would like to be part of a discussion panel or if you would like to share your ideas, opinions, or questions. This is, after all, a safe place for everyone. Alright, people. Let’s go!

Sarah’s Bio:

Sarah Mei is a Ruby and JavaScript developer based in San Francisco, California. She is the Chief Consultant at DevMynd Software, where she spends most of her time pairing with her clients’ developers, helping level up their team. Her particular areas of interest are OOP, service refactorings, growing teams, and inter-developer dynamics.

She has written here about her experiences pair programming while she was at Pivotal Labs, and also her approach to testing. Her most popular article, by a huge margin, is about the dangers of shiny new technology.

Sarah is writing a book with Sandi Metz about how to refactor Rails applications towards happiness.

You can find her on Twitter, GitHub, and LinkedIn.

Episode Highlights and Show Notes:

In this episode, you will hear a recent pre-Interview I had with the indomitable Sarah Mei. The full interview is scheduled for February 2016. Sarah is a fantastic conference organizer, speaker, and certified Nice Person™. If you ever wondered, what it’s like to be on the show, you will enjoy this part of the episode.

I hope you listen to this episode and let me know what you think. I will be thrilled if you did!
