What next?

At some point in every programmer’s life, comes a time when you wonder: “Ok, what now?” When you feel you’ve become an experienced engineer, you find yourself at a crossroads: you love to code, but do you see yourself doing it 10+ years from now? In order to be able to answer this question properly, you first need to know your options.

In this talk, we will explore different career opportunities that see you either progressing as an Individual Contributor, or transitioning into people/tech management. You will learn to understand whether your current company can support your growth plans, or how to find (or create!) a more suitable one.
