Things I was unprepared for as a lead developer
Comments are closed.
Funny and emotional talk about what is really required to manage wetware.
One of the top talks I have attended. I always imagined a lead developer to be a girl/guy who decides about development technologies and leads the team by also being a mentor to them. This really opened my eyes about how much more a lead developer does.
Great tips on how to give yourself time to also do some coding when you are a lead developer :)
The talk was pretty much everything I expected. Turns out that the challenges of being in a management position are very similar to the challenges of freelancers/small businesses owners. Great insights about the team dynamics and company culture. A highly valuable talk for every ambitious developer.
Good talk with a plenty of important points based on experience. The tempo was a little to slow to my taste but the presentation was excellent.
I particularly loved the fact that the story is given from the perspective of a developer who stepped up to a managerial
position, which makes it much more interesting for an audience of developers.
Nice talk, not too pretentious.
Just didn't like long pauses, they make it hard to keep up with the talk and maintain full concentration.
Great talk, speaker was not only engaged but inspiring the crowd. Good stories from the trenches to keep the talk entertaining and practical.
I love soft talks of this kind cause it's really hard to find material on this things and being a developer/engineer is IMHO much more then just coding.
For me, the only confusing thing is that I believe that position was more of a team manager not team leader (which does point towards how broken our job title systems are :) ).
Humorous, nicely-paced and useful
Great talk, great pacing, and as others have said, a lot of very useful and insightful info.
A nice talk about what awaits us in the land of the managers, but a bit too slow for my taste. 45 minutes seems way too much for this talk.
As this was great talk I would like to share it within company. During the conference it was said that videos materials will be available. Anyone knows how to get those? I expected to see those in joind.
