Most software developers would make lousy managers, but many of the experienced developers that I have met and worked with have more to offer in terms of technical leadership than they share with their managers and team. As an industry, we need you to leverage your experience for the benefit of us all. In this session we will examine some clues that you may be ready to "level up". We'll discuss when and how to appropriately exercise technical leadership and when to keep our mouths shut.
Attendees will leave this session with a toolkit of tactics to influence their teams, companies and clients to make better choices in the pursuit of greater user value.
