Observe Other Engineers

Don't know what you need to do as a software engineer to get promoted? Observe engineers who are better than you! However, this is a surprisingly difficult skill to develop. This lesson teaches you:

  • Which engineers you should observe and how to find them
  • What you should be looking for when observing other engineers
  • What "silent hero" work is and how very senior engineers do a lot of it
  • The concrete avenues you should look at when trying to figure out why a higher-level engineer is superior to you
  • Why getting jealous of engineers above you is a colossal waste of time, even if you are truly better than them
