What is a good way to motivate stagnant developers to try new technologies?

    Bring in another developer that knows the technologies you want them to try, and then put them in a position that makes them feel like they're being replaced (but dont actually replace them, just see if it motivates them) 😈

    Have one day a week (or half a week) dedicated to learning new tech and working on side projects. Paid.

    @Root I'm lucky if they make the time to review my code; I don't see this happening. Won't stop me from asking though

    Dedicate 1 day a week / or sprint to upskilling. Works well if the devs get onboard.

    Half a week omg. That would be bliss.

    Made my suggestion during retro.
    "Nah, it isn't an option. Do personal projects at home"

    Nah. I'll be doing it at another workplace. I handed in my 2 weeks notice today.
