OPEN TALK: Up-Skilling While Still Checking in

Bill Penberthy
AWS, .NET Developer Advocate

With over 25 years in software development, Bill brings a pragmatic (curmudgeonly?) approach to software development. With much of that time spent in consulting, Bill has worked on many different projects and used many different architectural approaches. He recently switched to the dark side and uses his development and architecture experience in a product management role where he acts as a .NET developer advocate to AWS, helping them to build a better and richer .NET developer experience.

How do you switch design paradigms, or shift technologies or architectures - especially when not all of your team has the requisite knowledge? Many times this means that either some of your team will be left behind or you have to stop\slow development. Who likes those choices? We will go over a couple of up-skilling strategies that will keep a developer team productive while updating their skills and knowledge as part of their job.
