Course overview

Software engineering lessons from the front lines

In this course, I will share all the (hard-learned) lessons I acquired building and maintaining software used on a daily basis by millions of people.

Georges El Khoury

Software Engineer - ex: Uber, Airbnb and Microsoft

I have built, maintained and supported software in production for big companies and early stage startups.


I designed and implemented software that is used on a daily basis by millions of people.


I was the lead engineer on the Uber offer (dispatch) flow - a critical part of an Uber trip - and Uber for Business.


I conducted thousands of code and design reviews, was part of teams that multiplied in size and was the engineer in charge during global outages.


I enjoy writing elegant code and turning ideas into working software.


I write software engineering articles on my newsletter: Software Engineering Tidbits.


I am passionate about teaching and mentoring. It is one of the main reason I am teaching this course. One of the best feedback I get out of this course is I am applying a lot of what I learned in my day to day.
