About this Case Study
Suffering from impostor syndrome can be debilitating and unproductive. In this session, Jack and Clem will share experiences, anecdotes and techniques for coming to terms with having it, and what to do about it. The discussion covers two roles (one hands-on software engineering, one leadership) and draws out some common traits and then tips on things that, in their experience, can help.
