Maybe the question is not only about #JuniorDevs but rather how do we grow the talent that organizations & the industry needs.

I am the proud product of an internship program that was started by a passionate returnee technologist who had worked at Bell Labs #DevDiscuss
The model used was:

1. Identify bright young pre-college students

2. Embed them with full-time developers (employees) and find ways to develop their skills and harness their eagerness to learn by working on real-world client projects

#DevDiscuss
3. Focus on the hard skills, and the soft skills - time keeping, communication, team playing, learning, presentation skills in the same vein

4. During university a 30 min public transport ride away, they would work 16 hours a week plus (2 half days and Saturday)

For #TransDayofRemembrance I want to tell you a story.

Last Nov/Dec, I was homeless. @realDonaldTrump had just been elected. I was living in my car. I was cold. I was hungry. The pain from my chronic lower back issues was horribly bad, every moment of every day (1/x)
Sleeping in my car was making it worse. I could barely stand, let alone go grocery shopping or walk longer than about 10 min, w/o being totally wiped out for the next day or 2. I was receiving no medical treatment for being #trans, for my #AtrialFibrillation or my back pain (2/x)
I was unemployed, had no degree, didn't pass, and I was severely depressed.

Only a few ppl know this, but I think it's time to talk about it. I almost died last December. I didn't have much $, but I was doing research on the best methods to kill myself that'd be effective (3/x)
