📖 Finished reading "Engineering Management for the Rest of Us", by Sarah Drasner.

I'm no manager, but we all manage something, be it ourselves, our relation with our team mates, managers and so on, so I'd say you don't need to be a manager to get something out of this book. Can also be interesting to understand the challenges our managers may face (and agree or disagree with how they've handled things 😅).

The book talks about various topics, strategies to handle different situations and whatnot, but what I would emphasize, would be that the most important thing is... (drum roll 🥁)... being a good person and caring about people! 🙂

Particularly happy that there are leaders like Sarah in the industry, when what has been on the news over the last couple of months has been terrible leaders who just don't care about their people.
