Dr. James Stanier never intended to become a manager, let alone a Director or VP. He certainly never intended to publish a book about it either! Dr. Stanier shares his story from doing a Ph.D. to failing to get an academic job to joining a start-up which grew rapidly through numerous venture capital investment rounds. After reading lots of books on management in the "business" world, he applied what he knew to help shape the Engineering department at Brandwatch and now Shopify.

Dr. James Stanier is (soon to be) Director of Engineering @ Shopify, and before that was SVP Engineering at Brandwatch.

#64: “Junior Developer … for Life?” with Rasheed Bustamam of Edvo | Educative Sessions

June 2, 2021

Although Rasheed Bustamam has worked in a senior capacity in many projects, he prefers to consider himself a "junior developer for life." This mentality helps him set aside his experience and ego and try to look at every project with a junior's perspective, asking himself questions like "Why is this written this way?", "Is this simple enough to understand?", and "Where are the gaps in my knowledge?" These questions help him think through solving business problems in a less complex manner.

#62: “From Freakonomics Fan to Open-Source Coder” with Chris Huie of Prebid.org | Educative Sessions

May 18, 2021

One of the first books that Chris Huie fell in love with was "...a story about a rogue economist" called Freakanomics. In it was a beautiful framework for how to approach problems and that mentality would lay the foundation for Chris's future. He would go on to study finance and end up having decently fast-paced career in business and finance. However, the zero-sum mentality that had served him well in the business world didn't feel natural. Open-source is the mental counter-point to zero-sum.
