A Personal Philosophy of Excellent Engineering

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This talk will expand your conception of engineering from simply “making the computer do a thing” to thinking of yourself as a professional communicator.

One of the challenges for engineers, as they progress towards more senior roles, is making decisions about what to focus on and what to emphasise in their work. We often describe this culinarily as being “seasoned” or having “good taste”. This talk will describe my personal philosophy, with the aim of helping you develop and improve your own personal philosophy.
