Web and software development training for Digital & IT recruiters
👋 Welcome! My name is Sandor.
I am a software engineer, and I am known for sharing educational content on LinkedIn for Digital and IT recruiters about Web and software development technologies.
I explain complex tech in plain English using analogies.For example, here I wrote about Node.js, React and DevOps
If you ever tried to pick up some brains from software developers about what they work on, you may have noticed, that they usually focus on certain technologies rather than on web and software development in general.
All courses for devs do the same - cover one topic in-depth. So you need to take multiple courses to cover Frontend, Backend, Databases and so on.
While this approach works well for people whose goal is to become devs, it does not work for Digital and IT recruiters. Because in recruitment, one may recruit across several areas starting from Frontend to Cloud technologies.
In the IT world, this amount of knowledge translates into tech teams. But in recruitment, this can mean one person.
Taking the same approach to learning technology as devs do will never work for recruiters.
I've got good news for you!
You can learn technology without becoming a software developer!
I've been training recruiters for over a year now. And I learnt from recruiters too.
Recruiters helped me to understand what information they need and how they want to consume it.
This experience helped me to build a training that explains in simple terms how software is built, what technologies are used and how to apply this knowledge in tech recruitment.
The training follows the rule of 80/20.
20% covers everything that recruiters need to know about web and software development technologies to talk to tech people with confidence.
Devs are more than happy to engage with recruiters who know the important basics - this is the goal of the training!
What you will learn
- How software is developed starting from planning till the release and maintenance.
- Agile, Scrum models and project management tools (e.g. Jira, Confluence as well as user stories, story points and other PM related stuff).
- What technology stacks exist and what they are used for (Frontend, Backend, Fullstack).
- What tools devs use to code (they are often mentioned in job specs and resumes).
- What are Databases, where they are used and what devs use them, SQL vs NoSQL.
- How different parts of the application communicate (REST API, SOAP, socket.io, GraphQL).
- How QAs test software and what tools they use (Unit, Integration and e2e testing).
- Why everybody talks about Microservices, Monolithic and Component architecture.
- What languages and tools are used for building Native and Hybrid mobile apps.
- How software is released and what Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD/CD) has to do with it.
- What are cloud technologies, Serverless, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and what they are used for and who is using them. And why even use them?
- Buzzwords: Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, Bootstrap, Cache, Frameworks, Mobile-first, Plugins, Responsive design and more.
- Why DevOps is a mindset, not a role.
- How to understand candidate’s seniority (Junior, Mid, Senior or Lead).
“If you can't explain it to a six-year-old,
you don't understand it yourself.”- Albert Einstein
Therefore, I explain everything using simple words.
The second important principle is that knowing tech isn't enough. You need to learn how to benefit from tech knowledge in recruitment.
For example, once you know the difference between the Object-oriented and Functional programming paradigms, you will still need to understand how easy or difficult it would be for candidates to switch between them.
I will answer the above question as well as many other similar once, for instance, whether candidates with only SQL database knowledge can work with NoSQL and vice versa.
It will help you a lot in clarifying job requirements and resumes to match them accurately.
How long is the training
Around three hours (2.5 hours of training and 30 min. of Q&A)
I am sure you will find the training very useful.However, if at the end of the training you feel you have not gotten your money’s worth, just let me know and I’ll refund your payment in full.
