You Don’t Have to Be a Manager | Stacy Devino
You are a fabulous Senior Engineer and you love what you do, but you feel stagnated. We have all heard it before: “Why don’t you become a manager?” Moving up the corporate ladder doesn’t mean that you have to move out of a technical role. Advancing past “senior engineer” doesn’t lead you to a crossroad — but to finding yourself in the middle of possibilities. There are many roles in tech that are still “technical” available, and this session will go over some of those options and what is involved in those roles. You will also hear the speaker’s first-hand experience of how you can make those roles your own and how they can differ significantly from one employer to the next.
Document Yourself: A Framework for Career Advancement | Michelle Brenner
The goal of this workshop is to document yourself the way you would document code. You wouldn’t expect someone who wants to use the program you built to read every line of code. Instead, they’re relying on the design documents and doc strings to know how it works. The same is true with your career. This workshop is about making it easy for you to provide overwhelming evidence of your value to the company. When you can show your ROI, it’s much easier to secure that promotion, raise or new job that you deserve.
