Really great article on how to communicate with junior level developers to help them grow instead of either shutting them down or dictating their work to them.

In the third conversation, the senior engineer asks the junior engineer what the problem is they’re trying to solve – this approach is the Socratic method.
Other good questions to ask are:

What are the top three solutions you investigated before you settled on this one?
Why did you reject the others?
Do any of them have merits which we should investigate later?
What could go wrong with your solution?
How maintainable is it if you’re not available?
What data do you have to back up your assumptions?
