Singaporeans in Tech: The Engineers

Singaporeans in Tech: The Engineers

Building a career in software engineering is much more than just writing code. Whether it’s working on new abstractions, developing internal tools, scaling infrastructure, contributing to open source projects, or even recruiting, hiring and mentoring other software engineers — there are many paths to take. How can one have the biggest impact as an individual contributor or manager? Join Swee Boon Lim (Distinguished Engineer, LinkedIn), Kah Seng Tay (Director of Engineering, Quora), Jiquan Ngiam (Director of Engineering, Coursera) and the rest of the Singaporean tech community as we learn about building talented technical teams, scaling complex systems and developing a career in software engineering.
