I work at a company that has over 20 development teams. We’re all on similar technology stacks, but interaction between engineers across teams is limited. I’m keen to arrange a kata pairing exchange to give engineers primarily an opportunity to improve their coding skills, but also a chance to interact with engineers from other teams, understand what they’re doing, how they work etc.
I was wondering if anyone here had introduced anything similar at their workplace? I have backing from the people in charge, but I don’t know what the best way to organise something like this would be. It would be an opt in programme, and individuals would need some way to advertise their availability and preferred tech stack. We have a few tools at work including Slack, Facebook Workplace, but we’re not restricted from using another third-party tool. Any advice?
