I work for a small consultant firm , where I am the only developer(C#, VBA, SQL, etc) along with couple folks who have knowledge of programming.
Is there any chance that I can visit some software companies and see how they approach programming at large scale and get answers to some of my questions one/one or a small group setting?
If yes, how do I approach i.e. reach out to their departments? other options I thought of is to attend conferences, workshops etc.Suggestions here will be great too.
I understand that companies might be not willing to entertain the idea but anything along those lines will help me get better at software development.
- Do software companies offer educational programs/workshops/QA sessions for outsiders?
- What are some effective approaches to self taught software development?
I am looking into attending Meetups, Developer Conferences and contributing to open source on GitHub.Also planning on reading books on Software development.
