    #28: How to Present Solutions as Software Engineers

    #28: How to Present Solutions as Software Engineers

    Different groups of people demand various details when listening to your solutions. The details you’ll show to a software engineer differs from the level of detail you will show to your product manager, and it will be completely different when you want to present to a C-level.

    I've realized many engineers struggle to communicate their work at different levels. Even the most experienced en­gineers have difficulty presenting their ideas or their achievements. In this episode, I talk about how to present your solutions and create the most profound impact on your audience. I share what I've learned and honed with feedback over the years.

    #27: Problem-Solving Skills & A Strategy for Software Engineers

    #27: Problem-Solving Skills & A Strategy for Software Engineers

    In the first episode of the new season, I talk about Problem-Solving skills and strategies for developers. As we all have a common goal of solving problems with software, improving our skills and using various strategies are crucial.



    I talk about a clear strategy to solve almost any problem we face. We can solve problems in five steps.


    Find out the real problem
    Clarify the problem and expectations
    Simplify the problem
    Create potential solutions
    Merge and evaluate solutions

    In five steps, you can solve many problems—big or small.



    You can find the transcription on candost.blog.
