In this episode of Le Podcast, I had the pleasure of discussing with Julien Danjou. Julien has more than 20 years of experience as an open source software hacker. Julien wrote two books about Python.
I wanted to ask him about the myth of 10x Engineers and what advice he could have for Engineers who want to grow their skills.
According to Julien, above the technical aspect that everybody think of, two other aspects are essential to grow as a software engineer: understanding the business, and understanding the social component.
I loved all the examples Julien gave and that could be put into practice immediately. It resonates a lot with me and I think it aligns very well with Michael and I shared in our new book I am a Software Engineer and I am in Charge. I hope that I will have the opportunity to discuss the book with Julien soon!
