    Ep 6 - Todd Ward - Dev Ops and Emotional Intelligence

    Ep 6 - Todd Ward - Dev Ops and Emotional Intelligence

    Todd Ward has built entire network operations centers, though I believe his most impressive achievement is his personal journey and growth over the years.  Todd completely changed the culture in our IT department through a tireless desire to do the right thing, assist his colleagues with their needs, and applying Dev Ops principles.

    We speak a little about The Unicorn Project, a book by Gene Kim about Dev Ops: https://amzn.to/37PEeqB

    If you'd like to join us in reading the book, pick it up and check back in about 8 weeks for our show on this great book.

    Ep 4 - Building Great Teams by Jon Freeman

    In this week's episode, I speak about the steps necessary to create highly effective teams.  There are three major sections - my #1 trait that successful teams all share, the simple analogy that you can measure team structure effectiveness against, and the 55-year-old model that explains how teams develop in stages.

    Ep 3 - George Ortiz - Getting back up after you fall

    George Ortiz is a dynamic software engineer who has successfully made the switch to Product Manager now at Facebook.  George takes us through the challenges he faced on the way to improving his career and lessons he's learned in software engineering. I won't spoil the show, but he literally FELL into software development as a career when he had different plans originally.
