Empathy Driven Software Development with Andrea Goulet

Xebia Wave Long Background


Empathy is software skill.

It might sound strange, but after my conversation with Andrea Goulet I strongly believe that’s the case. She explains how trust is the foundation of not only great software, but also great engineering teams. How do we build trust? Through empathy, and Andrea lays out some great practical examples of how it benefits everyone.
