TEAM stands for “Technology Education and Mentoring” and is a program which I conceived of and implemented at my workplace. This program consists of a series of presentations, delivered during the lunch hour, covering a wide variety of technical topics of general interest to software engineers, architects, QA, interaction designers and even product owners. The purpose of these sessions is to assist my co-workers in keeping their knowledge and skills current relative to the ever-changing world of software architecture and implementation. A secondary benefit of these sessions is that it provides a forum in which one can improve as an author and presenter. These sessions have been incredibly well-received and my co-workers are very excited about this program. When I attend or present a particularly interesting session, or have tips or lessons learned advice on facilitating/organizing/running these sessions, I'll be sure to post again on this topic.
