PHPMeetup - Soft Skills

Soft Skills PHPMeetup

So last night I attended my second PHPMeetup, I had a fantastic time listening to Miguel Nascimento's talk about how valuable Soft Skills are.

You can read more about this subject from Mike Classic whom already wrote about this topic, which you can find at https://mikeclassic.ca/blog/be-a-great-developer.

When listening to the talk yesterday, I was able to identify with a lot of the aspects that he was talking. Coming also from a Sports background, I've learned how important it is to work in a team, be respectful, deal with conflict and empathise with others.

After the talk, I spoke with Miguel and found out that this was his first talk and he was a bit worried about it and how it went. I can only say he did great, learning more about him and where he came from I understood how he is perfectly suited to talk about this aspect that many people seem to struggle or not grasp at all.

It's also not a developers only type of talk, this is something that everyone should be concerned about, learn and teach it to the next person.

P.S. - Once again I wouldn't be able to attend these if it were not for Shirley (my love) for giving me the opportunity to attend this and staying home with the kids.
