How to Make the Transition to Tech Leadership

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The most critical time for the leader of an engineering team is the beginning. Teams take cues from day one and their practices and culture can be hard to change. For engineers transitioning into a management role, that means their most important work comes when they're least experienced. This isn't a talk about how to be a great tech leader. This is a talk about going from being an implementor to a lead, or from one lead role to another. To be successful you'll need a plan. What should you be thinking about now, before the opportunity arises? How can you get off to a good start? We'll give concrete tips as well as food for thought. This talk is especially targeted to members of startups.
