Eppo van der Plas
Eppo, nerd, technologist and engineering manager at ASML. The software solutions his group crafts drive innovation at the nanometer scale and have impact on the global semiconductor industry. He wrote his first code on the family's computer at the age of 9 and at about the same time he got involved in electronics. It was then when I first learned that "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic". That magic has driven him ever since. The past 20 years have been mainly about software development. The 10 most recent years have been about engineering management and building exceptional, inclusive and diverse teams, with a strong focus on developing the most valuable part of any organization; people!www.eppovanderplas.com
Loosing good staff sucks, especially if it typically takes 6 to 12 months to onboard them. In this session we’ll have a chat about the specific challenges we face in the semi-conductor field and the stuff we do retain our highly skilled staff.
