Today’s special episode is a live fireside chat I moderated with Nick Caldwell who is the VP of Engineering at Reddit. This event was put together by the founder of the San Francisco Engineering Leadership Community, Jerry Li. SFELC is an exclusive and curated community for engineering leaders in the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in early 2016, they’ve grown to 400 leaders from over 200 companies. Their mission is to create a fundamentally better way for engineering leaders to learn and connect, through community and sharing. This episode is a bit longer than my usual episodes and also includes a Q&A with the audience at the end. I want to thank Nick and Jerry for a great event and for allowing me to use this on my podcast. Listen on for a very engaging and informative conversation.
