We’ve got Ben and Dan from Xero this week
Dan has worked with some familiar names in Wellington IT and now works at Xero, building features and improving code in one of the core teams.
Ben has been working with Microsoft technologies for around 15 years. After a stint teaching at Dev Academy earlier this year he is now also at Xero, looking after some of the developers and talking about code quality.
They’re going to talk about the similarities and differences techniques between and tools Dev Academy students are learning and the ones that firms like Xero are using.
This was cool. Find it really exciting when looking at the digram showing how Xero is comprise. As HTML, CSS & JS were right there for the front end. At school we are teaching HTML/CSS from Y11 and it will be cool to show the students how what they are learning relates to real world / industry.
