This week: Publish vs. Pull Managers, How I share information with my team, Communication styles on the linux Kernel, Developers: stop undervaluing software
Heidi Waterhouse on the natural communication styles of managers, presented in a uniquely engineer-y fashion. If you’re not adapting your style for your specific team, you may be neglecting some of your team without realizing it.
Mike McGarr, an engineering manager at Netflix, on async communication, the case against meetings, and the practical strategy that has worked to communicate with his team. (As for the reference to Google Docs… if you haven’t tried Dropbox Paper yet, we highly recommend it!)
