About this talk

Bobbie sits down with Andrea Goulet to learn more about what good communication has to do with building software. Come to find out, it has a lot more to do with than you might think. The idea of a lone developer coding in her basement without social interaction is a thing of the past. These days, technical solutions are often developed by cross-functional teams whose participants have a range of technical experience. Now, more than ever, good communication skills are essential to shipping great software. There is a great need for business-minded professionals to be able to acquire more technical skills and for engineers to be able to articulate their ideas to people who may not code. While it often feels like these two worlds speak completely different languages, when an effort is made to break down stereotypes and silos, magic can happen. After this webinar, you’ll understand how to: •Expand your skillset to become a better collaborator •Use empathy to help you understand your co-workers •Explain the causal link between good communication and quality code •Implement specific practices to get business folks and engineers working together
