Career Advice for Architects

Trisha Gee (JetBrains)

Any idea how to climb the ladder but remain technical? Or how to avoid being promoted away from what you love?

Did you realise when you started your career just how important non-technical skills would be? What other skills would make life easier but are undervalued?

How do you stay ahead of the curve? Stay relevant?

In this session Trisha is going to share some lessons she learnt the hard way while managing her career as a developer / lead / technical advocate. She’ll give you tools for working out what your next steps are. And plenty of examples of what not to do!
