Emphasizes the importance of connecting with people, implementing efficient processes, and leveraging existing technologies to successfully manage software delivery teams. As an engineering leader, I've learned that success hinges on three pillars: people, process, and technology. People Connecting with your team members is crucial. Take time to build empathy and
My 8-year-old has begun tinkering with the game creator Flowlab and Minecraft - grasping those basic programming concepts. However, that raised a question in my forward-looking parental mind: should generative AI also be part of his learning toolkit? I contemplated whether AI was out to steal human coding jobs. I
But is no-code all it's hyped up to be? When I first started using no-code AI tools like Chat GPT Builder, to build apps, I was filled with skepticism. As an engineer, I doubted that AI could truly replicate what I do. But I was amazed by what I built
So you became a people manager, congrats! You likely got here because you're good with people (not always the case though), and you're probably an awesome engineer too. You code in your sleep, mentor your peers, discuss new technology - a constant overachiever whose work has made an impact. But
You've deployed your code, and just when you're about to bask in the glory of a job well done, a bug shows up uninvited. Welcome to the emotional rollercoaster of coding. First off, don't lose your cool. Bugs are as common in coding as typos in a hastily written email.
I was recently posed the question: "Do you have any regrets?" When folks assert they have "no regrets," I can't help but raise an eyebrow. As for me? Officially, none. Funny how the 'regret' question often pops up during low points, rarely when you're soaring high. Yet, either way, the
Ever been dealt a "fantasy" product design and thought, "What planet did this come from?" Yep, me too. I used to be that engineer, scrambling to meet insane deadlines with caffeine as my co-pilot. Frustrated, I began to push back, offering alternative routes and questioning the big "why's." This back-and-forth
