I'm sooo happy this episode is out now! It took multiple weeks to be able to get a couple of hours of my friend Farbod Saraf's time.

Farbod is the product lead at Miro, a super hot tech startup where they are building the next generation online collaborative tools. Miro has recently experienced a hyper growth from 3 million to 20 million users and from 300 to 900 employees in only 15 months!

In this episode we cover many aspects of product management within different types of organisations, the dynamics of product management and engineering and the product alignment framework.

In the fireside chat 🔥I explore with Joe Rahme (engineering manager at Red Hat) his perspective on engineering management and the qualities of a great manager. We also discuss how you could make the transition from an individual contributor to management and what to expect.

If you're currently a software engineer contemplating a career in management, or if you're a manager looking for some tips on how to create bonds with your remote teams or if you just like my content in general grab your favourite beverage and headset and tune in:

Right on schedule, I published one of the best videos I made so far. It's about a tool I love using on a daily basis :)

Hosted a Virtual Fireside Chat
My guest today is Johannes Nicolai a principal solutions engineer at GitHub and an awesome colleague of mine. In this episode we chat about how the future of software engineering will look like. How we will be writing code in a decade from now and what will this domain look like in 30 years from today. We also chat about the meaning of innovation, and why we haven't seen a major paradigm shift in our industry for decades.

Johannes Nicolai is a long-time open source enthusiast and contributor. His latest work is the curation of self-hosted runner solutions for GitHub Actions. In his position as Principal Solutions Engineer at GitHub, he supports companies like BMW, Bosch, Continental, Daimler, Deutsche Börse and SAP in technical and cultural challenges around software development and open/internal source. Prior to GitHub, Johannes was responsible for the  development of Subversion, SourceForge, TeamForge and Gerrit as European Head of R&D at CollabNet.

👇watch it - it's a really cool episode, I promise! 👇

Experimenting with Technology

Used an API

The third and last episode of the #GitHubCopilot series! I ran a small experiment to determine whether I can measure Copilot’s efficiency and accuracy benefits.

To my surprise, Copilot helped me build a simple API wrapper 3 times faster and way more accurately 😳… I was expecting more of myself to be honest, and this video is a strong testament that Copilot is not a gimmick and it’s here to stay.

Watch the runs with Copilot enabled and without it and derive your own conclusions 👇👇

This is the second episode of a series dedicated to answering questions about GitHub Copilot. In this episode I'm introducing a feature to an open source project and demonstrating how Copilot behaves in an existing code base, with writing unit tests and documentation.

This video made it to the front-page of HackerNews and it sat there for the better part of the day :) 

There are 1 or 2 more videos in this series, coming up this and next week
