So you're a "Senior Developer" now? What does that even mean? Is it a title you get for being the last one standing in a difficult environment? Is it a label you get for being older than your peers? If you want to become a "senior developer" what are some things that can help you get there?
In this talk, Chris shares his experiences of being a "senior developer" on different projects across different companies across different programming languages. Some of the things discussed include:
- problem isolation
- tooling support
- domain knowledge
While sometimes it just takes time to get to be "senior", these tips can help apply structure to a job that often comes with less coding and more problem solving.

Great set of tips for those who are, or aspire to be, senior developers. Presented with all the grumpiness and experience we've come to expect!
Chris had a great delivery that was entertaining, humorous, and informative. Good life lessons shared and career advice. Loved the grumpy approach that is practical and realistic instead of sugar-coating things. Had the audience laughing and learning, mission accomplished.
Great topic for devs at all stages. As a senior dev already, i got insight on the progress of expectations and responsibilities i need to be aware of. Younger devs may see a glimpse of the need for patience in their path - seniority isn't a linear timeline, and accepting the role is more than just a title to increase your salary/rates.
