We think everybody should have the opportunity to be up-skilled in a way that provides real world applicable skills. Supporting the tech community is important to us and we’re offering mentoring/training workshops run by some of the best technical minds for free.
The Sixes Community Mentoring Group is for professional software developers keen to advance in the .NET and Azure space. You’ll be able to benchmark yourself, understand gaps in your knowledge and seek support from those who are excelling in their field.
We’ll facilitate training that will help sharpen your technical skills, and we’ll give insights on non-technical skills – the soft skills required for developers to move into Leadership positions. What does it look like:
One workshop a month with 10 mentees for six months
Each workshop will have key areas to focus on, similar to guided training
Subject matter experts from our team will facilitate curated workshops
