Hi everyone! My name is Amy and I'm new to During the weekdays, I'm a systems software engineer that works with tools like Kubernetes, Docker, and Go! I love all things distributed systems. On the weekends, I make youtube videos about software engineering. This past weekend, I made a video that gives tips on career growth.

Here are 5 tips to grow your software engineering career!

  1. Learn how to communicate technical ideas
  2. Constantly work to expand your scope of involvement and understanding
  3. Work on "soft skills"
  4. Don't take everything as direction
  5. Keep track of your progress

If you're interested in learning more about each point, check out my video.

Definitely make sure to follow me on for more awesome content

Hey Amy! Just an FYI that you can embed your youtube videos directly into a post by using this syntax if you'd like:

{% youtube _lJarNEjT94 %}

Thanks so much! I'll keep that in mind for the future. I think I want to keep it as a separate link in terms of how I drive traffic to the video. The ultimate goal is to convert viewers to subscribers.

Will figure out which posts I think directly embedding the video is applicable. 🤔
