ABSTRACT OF THE TALK

In this talk I share my personal experience where when I was working for a client the company had a hard time innovating and did not have a lot of faith in their software/infrastructure engineers.

From a 'distance' I saw a lot of potential where they already had knowledgable engineers but lacked the experience to get started as a company but also as individual engineers.

I created a community at that client, filled with their engineers. It was open to everyone who wanted to learn and we saw everyone's input as equal. Because of that safe space the company now runs almost all their IT in the cloud in a way that made both the engineers and the managers happy. All simply by just being a nice guy!

KEY TAKE-AWAYS FROM THE TALK

Even though you might not be in a position of power, I will show you that no matter who you are, be that a manager, engineer or even the janitor you can help make positive change in your company!
