Episode details

Have you ever asked yourself about you should learn something different than your expertise? In every engineer's career, there comes the point when they have to decide if they want to learn something new. Sometimes it means changing career goals, but sometimes it's expanding the horizon.

Changing the career might look like a step back. If an engineer is on the senior level, they might go back to mid-level. This week we talked about the life of a generalist (or all-rounder) software engineer.

My guest was Ricardo Smania. He is a software engineer at Jimdo. He worked as a software architect, manager, and full-stack engineer before.

Whether you want to be a specialist or a generalist, this session is for you.
