Building Your Career Like a Product: A PM’s Take | Huma Hamid
Careers and products have a few things in common e.g. they have a life cycle, they require vision, investment and feedback and there is a ROI. To stay relevant in today’s competitive and fast moving workplace, building your own career has gone from a “nice to have” to a “necessary to have”. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be ambitious or career driven, the chances that you will outgrow your existing role, team, company or industry are very high. In this talk, Huma covers the fundamentals of building products (vision, strategy, roadmap, prioritization, performance indicators, feedback-loop) that can also be applied to building an impactful, agile, revenue generating career.

20 Questions To Ask Your Next Employer | Dave Farley
How do you pick your employer? How do you get a great job in software development? Programming jobs aren’t all the same. What makes a good job in software is subjective, obviously, it depends on what you are looking for, but there are some generic characteristics that statistically predict that people working in these places will enjoy their work more and have lower rates of burn-out and improved scores in things like work/life balance. So how do you get a job in software that is more rewarding, more fun and will challenge you to get better at the things that you love? How do you find the jobs that will help you to become a better SW developer? This probably all sounds too good to be true, but in this episode, Dave Farley, author of “Continuous Delivery” and “Modern Software Engineering”, offers his advice on how to pick great employers. He describes the things that you should explore, when looking for a new job, to decide if a potential employer is only talking a good game, rather than playing a good game.
