tip from : maintain an updated brag document, including - projects, impact (what you did + why it mattered) - leadership, proj. management, communication - mentorship: track interviews, events, coffee chats - recruiting, brand, outreach = not just code!

And also because you can always learn from one another. I can think of multiple mentees who actually made me realize / taught me things while I was mentoring them. It's all about sharing, which goes both ways 😉

These slides from about how to become a tech lead are SO useful. I especially appreciate that "mastering your craft" is only one part of the equation -- just as important is communicating how your engineering work translates into business value.

"You can be both a mentor and a mentee at the same time, and honestly, you should." Because you by mentoring someone, you realize how far you've come.

“Most of people when they talk of compilers, they sound like they’re about to cast a spell.” 😂 Though I dunno, I wouldn’t hate an introduction to compilers via some kind of witchy magic analogy...

I love this idea of building infrastructure for yourself— shares an experiment her executive coach gave her: a strict decision framework on when to say no to help mitigate workload.

People who like green: it's a good color People who like orange: it's a good color People who like purple: Purple is my life. I dress purple, I glow purple, I eat and drink purple. If you come into my house and insult purple, I will personally tear you limb from limb
