Hello World !!!
Art of Engineering Leadership: A Simplified journey to becoming an effective tech leader.

Hello, Fellow Engineers!

Are you an exceptional engineer seeking advice on how to make the move to become an influential engineering leader? Are you tired of sifting through an enormous amount of knowledge spread over various platforms in search of a few helpful resources? Do you long for plain, jargon-free, and brief advice? If your answer is yes, rest assured that you are not alone.

We understand the exasperation of navigating through extensive content found in books, YouTube videos, LinkedIn posts, and engineering blogs. We have also observed this common struggle among our friends and colleagues. This realization served as the driving force behind the creation of this blog.
Useful content is full of jargon, distributed and hard to find

Our intent is straightforward: we want to simplify and demystify the knowledge we acquire, making it relatable to all engineers. Whatever helps us grow or inspires us, we will distill and share on this blog. This process not only helps us solidify our understanding but also provides a valuable resource for fellow engineers aspiring to become senior engineering leaders. Together, we can build a community centered around engineering leadership. We can learn from one another, support each other's growth, and foster an environment of collaboration and success.

Now, here's the exciting part about how we plan to publish this blog. We'll be using pseudonyms, and we're starting with the pseudonym "RacerX," which pays homage to a character from the anime series "Speed Racer." For those who may not be familiar, Racer X, Speed's older brother named Rex, is a mysterious masked racer. He assists Speed on his racing journey and fights against evil forces. We hope that this blog can serve as a guiding light on your path to engineering leadership.

By adopting pseudonyms, we ensure consistent personas and writing styles, regardless of the actual author. This approach accommodates different learning styles, as we plan to expand the number of pseudonyms in the future. Readers can find the pseudonym whose writing style resonates with them, providing a personalized experience. We understand that one size does not fit all.

Left: messy state of current leadership advice. Right: Art Of Engineering Leadership way of doing things

It is 2023, and no blog should leave its position on using AI-generated content uncovered. As engineers, we instinctively try to use the best tools at our disposal to increase quality as well as one's productivity. This, in 2023, means using generative AIs as creative writing is not our core goal for this blog. Instead, we aim to create a unified platform where engineers can learn, contribute, and engage with a community of like-minded individuals aspiring to grow as engineering leaders.

We won't use only AI-generated content. It doesn't add value, and there's plenty of other content out there. We'll always share our experiences and learnings and sometimes include community contributions. But we'll use AI to make sure our writing has the right tone, grammar, flow, and simplicity for each pseudonym's persona. For example, in this article, the first paragraph was AI-generated, and the rest was written directly and grammar-checked using AI tools.

We hope that this blog becomes a valuable resource on your journey toward engineering leadership. Stay tuned for more insightful and practical articles from RacerX and our future pseudonyms. Together, let's forge a path of growth and success in the world of engineering leadership.

We invite you to join us on this transformative journey!
