Session + Live Q&A

How Open-Source Engagement Can Accelerate & Solidify Your Staff+ Career

Your first contribution to an open-source project is an event to be celebrated. However, an isolated contribution won't have that impact on your career. The key to such an impact is to create a long-term engagement in the community.

Staff+ engineers usually create their own unique path to the role but rely on a common set of skills like written communication, the ability to focus on work that matters, contribute to the technical direction, and the art of influence. Staff+ engineer careers are not only made of skills; they also need to create impact.

In this presentation, you will learn how open-source contributions and long-term community engagement will help you build and sharpen these
critical skills and increase your impact to land and/or solidify your staff+ career.
