As Software Engineers, we always hear that we need to improve our "soft" skills to reach higher levels, but when we ask for examples, we get things like "teamwork", "intellectual curiosity" or "communication", which are vague terms.
In this talk, I will show you an engineering approach to non-technical skills with 5 concrete tools. Right after the session, you will be able to:
- Communicate tech debt to non-technical people
- Design and track experiments
- Prioritize your work
- Do better estimations
- Drive technical decisions in your team
Objective of the presentation:
The term "soft skills" is vague and overused, we as engineers want tools. I will provide tools to e.g. improve communication with non-technical people, driving decisions, and doing better estimations. What makes me different? My engineering approach to soft skills.
