Whether you’re discussing tradeoffs with a designer, rallying support for a new tool, or reviewing someone’s code, emotional intelligence is essential for effective software engineering. This talk provides a framework for understanding your own behavior and cultivating empathy for others. You’ll leave inspired to apply these skills to unlock your full potential as a developer and a human being!
Software may be built on machines, but it’s built by and for human beings. To be a highly effective software engineer, you must be able to navigate human interactions successfully. Emotional intelligence is the set of competencies that will allow you to do just that!
