Hiring the Developer Your Team Needs: Think Outside the GitHub Green Box

30 minute beginner workshop

Description/Proposal

Not all developers are equal. When it comes to the hiring process, it's easy to focus on just a developer's code. Often this comes in the form of how many green boxes they have on their GitHub profile. In this talk, we'll examine the various developer "tropes" and look at how to find the developer who fits best with what your team needs. No "rockstar" or "ninja" job descriptions allowed.
