I might be onboarding the first junior developer to @honeybadgerapp’s open-source team. Pretty stoked about that. Been trying to think of ways to involve juniors in the business for a long time.

We don’t hire a lot of people full-time and our product development process isn’t great for mentorship. Open source is a different story, though. There are lots of small things to learn and do there, and it’s public, which helps build community.

My current plan is to bring juniors onto the team with few expectations. They can hang out to learn and contribute when they’re ready. We’ll see how it goes.

“I love that you are keeping the customers’ interests first.”

rails new test_app --minimal never fails me.
