Soft Skills Engineering listeners are awesome. Here's what they are saying about the podcast.
Facing a 9 hour drive, I grabbed a bunch of podcasts to listen to. I don't even know what the other ones are.
Seriously, this podcast is full of massively helpful and relevant content from two people who are experienced, funny, and insightful.
I owe you a lot, listening to Soft Skills has completely shifted my thoughts on what it means to be an engineer.
It’s probably one of the more useful things I’ve gained during my time at Amazon. I kind of brushed this stuff off, considering some of it
politics, and the rest unimportant, but boy was I wrong. It definitely helped me grow, and I’m totally indebted to you for that.
In episode 4, Jamison and Dave answer this question:
I have heard a lot about “marketing myself” and my “personal brand”. For example, some people say I should be writing a blog post every week or creating lots of YouTube content. They talk about being a “thought leader”. I love building stuff as an engineer, and obviously I want to have a great job, so how important is this stuff?
Welcome to Soft Skills Engineering, where we answer your questions about non-technical topics in software engineering. Come get some wisdom, or at least some wise cracks.
In episode 1, Dave and Jamison answer two questions:
I’m a developer who gets approached from time to time to work on new software ideas. While I find working on something new and intriguing I have no experience with business. How do I determine how legitimate these opportunities are?
