In this presentation, Lucciano will try to explain why that is!

    Kind Engineering
    Evan Smith
    • Evan Smith icon

    Software Engineering is an environment that is rife with worrying stereotypes like the "Brilliant Jerk" and the "Peter Principle". How do you be a kind engineer and encourage kindness in engineering? For the last couple years, Evan has been exploring what it means to be a Kind Engineer through books, media and interviews. It's called different things in different circles but ultimately it leads back to one fact: people who give more unconditionally make themselves happier, their teams happier and their companies happier.

    This talk will cover practical tips for becoming a kinder engineer through the following topics: code reviews, psychological safety, giving/receiving feedback and honesty in the workplace.
