Welcome to Despo and Alberto!

I would like to make a big public welcome to our new apprentices Despo and Alberto who are starting at eden very soon!

Despo is well known to us through the Software Craftsmanship User Group, code retreats and other software crafting events. We are looking forward to having Despo join us tomorrow, and we’ve already got plenty of work lined up for Despo to jump straight into (pairing with other edenites, of course!)

Alberto has recently spent a 4 weeks here as an intern, and we are delighted to welcome Alberto back for an apprenticeship with us, starting next week. We have already seen Alberto learn a lot during those 4 weeks, so it will be great to follow Alberto’s further progress.

Both Despo and Alberto have solved the eden minisculus challenge!

I am personally very excited as i shall be acting as a mentor to both of them. This is a new challenge for me, and i’m looking forward to it. I very much enjoyed working with Tom over the summer, and i found that Tom seemed to learn a lot from me by coincidence without me actively trying to teach anything. I think that my skills of empathy and personal development help to make me suitable for the mentorship role.

Welcome, new apprentices, we are all very happy to have you join us! :)
