Chris Laffra on how to become a 10x Engineer

Xebia Wave Long Background


The idea of a “10x engineer” is popular in Silicon Valley and is used to refer to a rare engineer who can achieve 10 times more than an average developer.

We invited Chris Laffra on to discuss this idea, and as you might’ve guessed, it has to do with making other people more productive. But before doing that, you’ll need to focus on your individual productivity and impact, and maximise that to a certain degree.

Sounds interesting? Listen in to find out more!

PS: Chris gave me a copy of his book: Communication for Engineers, and in there he wrote: “To be happy, make other people happy”.
I love it!
