Overheard @ super{summit}

Vivek Vaidya’s takeaways from the inaugural super{summit}


Albert Einstein said, “if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” As a technology leader, I have always been and continue to be a big proponent of the need for Engineers to learn and get really good at the art of communication — whether it is describing how a specific product or feature works or giving a product demo to internal and external audiences.

Last year, after we concluded our annual super{set} holiday party, I wondered about the possibility of organizing a “tech summit” where we would gather “builders” — Engineers, Product Managers, Analysts, really anyone who “builds” — from all the companies in the hive to build community, share knowledge, and further develop our collective talents with no ulterior motive other than to be together. And thus, the super{summit} was born.

The result surpassed my greatest expectations for the inaugural super{summit}. Nearly 100 builders from 11 different companies came together in Denver — the Mile High City — for three days featuring four keynotes, 30 sessions, and a lot of fun.

While we’ll be sharing more of the fantastic content produced by colleagues across the summit sessions over the next few weeks, I want to first share my key takeaways from super{summit} 2022. These are the insightful earworms that I overheard and resonated with me on the plane ride home and the days that followed, and that I hope will reverberate with you, too.
