19:00 - 19:45 - Main Talk - Dale Humby (CTO at Nomanini)
As engineers we often prefer hard facts over the fluffy stuff. As a manager most of our impact is through soft skills. How does an engineering manager find balance the between the worlds of data-driven team metrics and the people skills required to get the best from their team.

In this talk, Dale shares some of his hard-won lessons managing an ever growing engineering team using a variety of processes like kanban and lean product development, and tools like metrics, coaching, autonomy and guard-rails.

Dale is co-founder and CTO of Nomanini, a local fintech startup that helps informal merchants across Africa thrive.

We're a meetup for leaders, managers of technical teams and aspiring technical leaders. Come curious and ready to share your experiences, give and receive feedback, and support one another.
