Staff+ Engineering in Practice

What skills do you need to develop if you want to stay on the technical track to technical lead, staff, or principal? What can you expect when you reach the Staff-Plus status? Will you still code?

While the management track has a plethora of books, courses, company training, and very clear expectations, the Staff-Plus Engineer path still does not receive the same level of support or clarity.

In this track, we will discuss what is expected from a Staff-Plus engineer, the leadership skills needed, the secrets to follow this path, how companies can be prepared to support Staff-Plus engineers, and why the future of our industry depends on it.
