Grow your Software Engineering Career with Emilien

Emilien Macchi is a Senior Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat. He is French and lives in Canada. He contributes to OpenStack nearly since the inception of the open-source project.

I had the pleasure to get Emilien on Le Podcast to discuss how learning and sharing were essential ways of growing his career in Software Engineering.

We covered many topics: peer reviews, pair programming, remote work (he thinks that collaboration is easier and better remotely). Of course, I also asked what he thinks are the most important things to develop as a coder (spoiler, it is not only technical skills).

As Emilien is also one of the first people who let a text review on Goodreads, I asked him what he thought of I am a Software Engineer and I am in Charge: The book that helps increase your impact and satisfaction at work.

I hope you will enjoy the episode! In any case let me know email, Twitter, or Linkedin.
