JuniorDev Refactor: Build and Deploy

It's hard enough being a Junior Dev, learning new languages, learning Webpack (lols), working with new people and new products, then they want us to build pipelines and deploy as well! We didn't all learn all of the things in our degree / bootcamp / online tutorial, so here’s our chance to upskill.

We're bringing in an experienced developer, Matt Hilton of Readify, to run the workshop, with TAs on hand to assist. The day will be a combination of practical examples and exercises with enough theory so you know what's happening, no magic here!

What you'll learn

  • Understanding of deployment pipelines concepts.

  • Context of when/why/how

  • Flow between environments (Local -> Dev -> Prod)

  • High-level coverage of more advanced concepts including continuous deployment and feature flags

What you'll do

  • A configured pipeline from scratch (for an existing app we provide)

  • Compile/Package/Release a solution

  • Implement automated testing

  • Troubleshoot pipeline failures


And have a mock app to take home with a configured deployment pipeline to continue on with!




Is this for me?

This isn't for first time programmers! We'll be jumping straight into the guts of deployment pipelines. You should understand basic Git commands, what back end and front end are, have an understanding of the development process.

As we're focussing on deployments the workshop is non-language specific. We'll be using a code editor and pulling and pushing with Git. We'll be reading & writing some basic code and unit tests. We'll be debugging and running through practical exercises, so you should know your way around the dev landscape well enough! If you are working as a Junior Dev then you have enough knowledge to join!

On the other hand, if you're a deployment guru already and have never struggled with anything like this, then maybe this isn't for you. It's about upskilling Junior Devs. So if you're well beyond the basics of deployment pipelines and can set up an environment for new projects with different staging envrionements, then you might give this one a miss. Check out the What You'll Learn, and What You'll Do sections above for more clarity!




What is JuniorDev Refactor?

After we landed our first Junior Developer job, we realised how little we knew! So much to learn, but now with full time jobs, work to be done, let alone side projects and god forbid, a personal life, we looked for a face-to-face learning environment where we could deep dive into specific topics. But nothing like this existed. So we created it.

This is a first in a series where we will cover a different topic or theme each workshop. Different languages, different tools, check the individual break down to see what's happening. Crafted for Junior Devs by Junior Devs, we invite you to come along and learn with us!
