Software Developer Career: Own iT by Thodoris Bais

Software Engineering is undoubtedly one of the best-paid jobs nowadays.
The latter implies that the market for Software Engineers is quite big, so there are always quite a few opportunities for all levels of expertise.
However, when a market is big it means it's not always that easy to find good Engineers; because in the end, this is what companies want: exceptional Engineers.
Are you happy enough with your current position? Do you often find yourself in dilemmas like "am I doing the right thing?", "should I change something?", "how can I improve my skills?", "how could I be seen as a strong technical person?" ?

Except for answering the aforementioned questions, this session will actually help you to:

- market yourself as you never did before
- drive your career in the direction you want
- keep being motivated to become better and better
- improve your productivity
- take the right decisions at the right time
