"""
Crafting your own Onboarding Experience

In our industry, a good onboarding experience is an exception than the norm. This pattern needs to change, given the influx of new developers joining us. I want to share strategies with developers joining a new team so they can craft their onboarding experience. However, existing team members can use these strategies as components of the team's onboarding process as well. These strategies are borne out of my experience, both as a new developer and as someone helping onboard a new team member.

Ashish Dixit is a Software Developer at Groupon. He is currently on his third team after starting as a beginner Ruby on Rails developer few years ago. His current focus is to become a full-stack developer and a systems thinker.

So you came to software development from some other background, and wonder what you missed not getting a "traditional computer science degree"?  

I might not be able to give you a com sci degree in a couple of short talks, but I can hit the highlights.  In this first of a series of talks, you'll learn about recursion… the act of solving a problem by defining a method that calls itself, getting closer to the solution each time.

Bring your thinking caps, because we'll start with a 10 minute thought experiment based on one of the Project Euler problems (http://projecteuler.net).

Hey folks, this time we're going to try something a little different. Ever heard of the game "Exquisite Corpse" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exquisite_corpse)? We're going to try something like that with everyone live this time. I've tried it before and it was lots of fun, so I think we'll have a good time! Come and check it out!

It was a pleasure and an honor to meet you guys, and I just would like to say that you are among the best people a female newbie junior dev could meet. :)

Until next meeting, I am off to Mongo land and to continue working on the Hackety-Hack project to finish as many of the tasks on that as I can.

Birthlines ( http://www.alljapaneseallthetime.com/blog/birthlines-part-1-what-is-a-birthline ) beat deadlines, imo. But yeah, it's good to put times on things.
