Episode 15: Working with non-technical people and keeping up with the latest technology (with Brad Green)


In episode 15, Jamison and Dave join Brad Green, engineering director at Google and Angular team mamager, to answer these questions:

How do I deal with non-technical people at work? I often get questions that put me into a position where I have to explain really basic concepts to non-technical people like sales and marketing. They seem to rely on me like a crutch, and it gets tiring to have to explain things over and over. How do I strike the right balance of being helpful, but not so helpful that they become dependent on me? I want to be helpful, but I don’t want to spend 90% of my time acting as tech support.

How do I keep up with new technology but avoid being sucked in by hype?
