A set of six-week workshops delivered to several cohorts of developers as part of their onboarding to Sky during their move from London to Leeds. It was essential to ensure those working with the Sky technology stack — which was mostly Ruby at the time — could contribute to and evolve projects as quickly as possible. Sky considered the workshops such a success that they had further workshops commissioned, and the materials of which are still used as part of onboarding new developers today.

I’ve had the privilege of working with Josh for many years. His approach and skillset have not only helped me become a better developer but a better person overall. If you’re looking to make your workplace more collaborative, engaging and highly-efficient, Josh is the person to help you start your journey.
