Sharing (Knowledge) Is Caring

Thomas Yates Thomas Yates
  • Are you transferring knowledge well?
  • Are you being understood?
  • How are you supposed to know?
  • What can you do to make yourself better understood?
  • What should you stop doing?
  • Have you even thought about how well you are putting things across?

Skills for sharing knowledge are something that you are expected to pick up as you progress in your career, without much or any formal training. I want to share knowledge with you from my experience as a teacher and as a programmer. I will answer these and other questions around this important, but often overlooked part of being a software engineer.

I will help you make yourself understood. I will reduce that awkwardness when you can't make yourself understood, and just don't know what else to do.

I hope this will be an informative and entertaining interactive talk.
