Is Sticking to Your Tech Domain Enough?

Is Sticking to Your Tech Domain Enough?

When people first start engaging themselves in a certain field, they mainly focus on the technical skills behind it. In the case of programming, that would be knowing X programming languages, knowing a bit about Data Structures & Algorithms, Computer Science, Networking etc. etc. etc.

But what people rarely understand is that merely working hard is not enough to be great at what you do. There is a missing piece. And in this presentation, I am sharing that with the audience.

This presentation was part of the IT Career Day of Software University (https://softuni.bg/trainings/2202/mission-career-start).
