Have you ever wondered what makes an expert an expert? … Do they know everything, do they have a million certifications or perhaps they’ve been working for over a decade?! Is it someone that has a hyper focus on a particular idea, framework, or tool set?
There are many ways that someone could be considered an expert. The goal here however is not to proclaim that “I am an expert!” instead we will you will learn different ways that you can become a better expert. Becoming an expert isn’t something that you unlock like an achievement, it is something that must be continually earned. Also there is no rule that days once you are expert in “<some awesome technology>” that you will always be an expert, It is very likely that you will be an “expert on demand”, in that you must pick up a technology fairly quickly, to help move a project along.
Speaker: David Driscoll
I am a Senior Software Developer by day, working with TrialCard here in RTP. By night I’m an Open Source Contributor to several projects including RxJS and IxJS. I am also a Microsoft MVP and the Team Lead for OmniSharp which provides C# Language services for Atom, Eclipse, Eclipse Che and Visual Studio Code.
I am currently trying to blog at https://www.daviddot.net on various topics from TypeScript to .Net to other interesting bits of information!
My mantra is “learn to work and work to learn”, learn something new so you have additional tools to take with you to work the next day!
