Life Beyond Coding - How to Nurture a Happily Productive Team

Sep 19, 2019 · Lisboa, Portugal

TALK #1

Title: Beyond Code: Thinking "Right" to Become a Better Engineer

Description: Being a solid SW Engineer is much more than just writing good code, knowing the latest languages or be aware of the hottest trends. Your career goals and the companies you work for also shape your future as they define much of the path you'll thread. There's always something to learn from everyone who crosses your path. Sometimes these lessons aren't easy on us or the ones we'd like to learn but there's certainly virtue in accepting with grace and gratitude.

TALK #2

Title: Are You Counting on You?

Description: Now, go and be an awesome Manager. Now, go and be a great Leader/Senior/Influencer for your team. Now, go and be the Scrum Master your team needs. Seems easy, right? How many times do you see this kind of push-you-to-the-swimming-pool-so-you-can-learn-how-to-swim movement? Usually when you are great at your job, someone offers you a more "suitable" role so you can "evolve". Learning on the job is essential, but how many times does this happen with (some) support? What about supporting yourself? Are you aware of the leader in you? Let's start there.
