"Even the slower person in a pair may have something to add"
Remind us of your background? Econ/Math, Investment Banking, Mayor's Office (Max's Origin Story here)
Take us through your junior phase. What did you find particularly challenging? I'm more of a top-down/big picture person - junior phase was bottom-up and fast paced which was challenging. Senior project allowed more room for creativity. The pacing was so fast I never really felt on top of it.
Senior Phase? Good experience working in teams (especially git flows)
Pair programming is a net positive: Driving at different speeds; Spelunker vs Librarian
Backend-first development and Learning to deal with Merge Conflicts❗
Professional Ambitions: Networking, realizing that large tech co's > startups
