Educating new coders

Yesterday our team got a new member. Its current task will be to slowly grow into our systems, libraries and structures and (midterm) help us with the development of our solution.

It will be mostly my function to help him with that and show him every niche and the dark corners of our software.

This is the first non-trivial teaching exercise I have got and I'm willing to give my new collegue as much insight and knowledge as I can.

I showed him to the overall structure and flow yesterday and either he is cleverer than me when I were introduced to that or I'm a better teacher than the person who introduced me to the whole system two years ago.
In fact, that doesn't matter. What matters is, that he understands the whole stuff :)
