Talk: The Effective Engineer

How do the most effective engineers make their efforts, their teams, and their careers more successful? In this talk, Edmond will share the most valuable insights that leaders from various top tech companies learned and the most common and costly mistakes that they've seen engineers — sometimes themselves — make. Edmond will distill down some of the key themes and share a unifying framework called leverage that you can use to identify activities that produce disproportionate results.
