The Aspiring Principal Engineers is a small, free to join, community of software engineers with an interest in one day becoming a principal engineer (sometimes called staff engineer). We operate via a Slack group and a mailing list.

Our members are typically developers, senior developers and tech leads who would like to build their skills with a view to becoming a principal engineer.
