This process can be even more challenging when that business is bringing highly technically skilled employees like developers on board.
Once you’ve found and hired new developers, how can your organization efficiently and effectively bring them into your current structure?
At the Software Guild, we help our partners customize their onboarding programs, ensuring they’re company specific and built to support your existing software development process. This helps new hires get up to speed with your current code and development infrastructure in no time.
How do we do this? We first look at your existing Learning and Development (L&D) materials and company culture, what the incoming cohort needs to learn, and which Software Guild resources best address these topics. Then we create a customized onboarding curriculum delivered in a program that best fits you and your team.
In the past, we’ve worked with our partners to create programs based on:
Cloud structure engineering
BDD behavior-driven development
We’ll help your organization identify the gaps in your current onboarding training program, identifying what tools or curriculum is lacking.
Next, we’ll help you set specific objectives/goals to ensure new developers get what they need to be productive the first day on the floor.
We then tailor the curriculum to guide your new software developers to achieve that goal.
This collaborative process is led by our instructors who bring both experience and practicum in an agile, learning-by-doing format.
We go over best practices for all development teams, covering topics that include:
