A Software Engineer’s Guide To Burnout And How To Avoid It

Online Soft-skill Workshops at Andela provide a platform for senior engineers and tech-thought leaders to engage with engineers across the globe as they share their technical expertise in a wide array of soft-skill areas.

In the month of September, we host Marcos Sponton; Founder and CEO of Yerbo.

About the Session:

While burnout is a part and parcel of almost every trade, the tech industry is quite unique because of its fast-moving environment with high expectations on all corners. It’s important to understand the signs that can point towards burnout risk and resources to avoid it, so developers (and team leads) can turn things around before it’s too late.
