Five Tips for Aspiring Tech Team Managers
Management isn't a topic that developers like to discuss a lot, it simply isn't as exciting as single responsibility or interface segregation. It is though a very important topic as management can make or break a tech project. It is aslo an interesting and worthwhile career path for people to follow; learning to mentor and guide younger developers along with learning about the business, finance and legal side of tech projects. Transitioning from developer to manager can be difficult though, in my talk I will offer advice for aspiring managers and developers generally on why they should become managers, what to expect and how to become better at it.
