Apart from #leaddev, we (Engineering leadership at carwow) believe that there is a dearth of good quality meetups to foster an open exchange of information, ideas and learning for Engineering managers, technical leads and others involved in Engineering leadership and lead developer roles, especially in London. So we have created this group to host Engineering leadership unconferences at our HQ in London!
Unlike most conferences, unconferences don't have pre-planned presentations or schedules. The meetup days will be organized around fostering conversations around the topics you find most interesting and important. All participants are invited and encouraged to participate in discussions on Engineering management/Tech lead topics such as
- Hiring and interviewing best practices - 1:1's and coaching engineers - Managing performance - Building high-performance teams - Roles of Engineering managers/Technical Leads/Principal engineers - Managing up - Working with product teams - Influence and impact of leads on engineering teams
Who should come?
Anyone in a software engineering leadership role. Lead developers, Technical leads, team leads, Engineering managers, Engineering directors, CTO's all welcome. If you're currently not involved in these roles but looking to move into one soon, we encourage participation as well.
