Let’s say you work on a team and you have a bunch of services, how do you share knowledge about the important parts of how things work? I would hope documentation is the answer and not “tribal knowledge”. But good documentation can be hard. So is communication and so is continuing to grow your career when there are so many directions you could go. In today’s show we are joined by a guest who gives us tips and tricks on better ways to create sustainable documentation, thoughts on how to communicate more effectively especially in an interview and shares a continuous learning framework he uses to help him grow.
Our guest today, Eddie Hinkle, believes the software we use should feel natively human and engage us both emotionally and cognitively. He has over 15 years experience managing engineers and designers and has worked in all sorts of industries including internet Saas, government contracting, cyber security, medical and health, education and more. Currently he is an engineering manager at Glassdoor, is the host of the podcast Webjoy, and a mentor for Collab Lab and ADPlist.org.
When he is not helping engineers grow their career with empathy he spends time with his three kids, a 5 month old, a 3 year old, and a 4 year old. He is also an avid reader and has even completed reading 52 books in one year. In his words if we aren’t learning we are stagnating.
