💯 Allen!! So. Many. Great. Points!
Glad you're finding it rewarding. For me, I found it really hard when I started. I was a terribly mediocre tech lead until I started to figure out that the people piece of it was truly its own discipline to figure out (sounds absurd to say that, in retrospect!).
Also, totally agree that you don't need a formal tech "lead" title. Think you would agree that I feel like most tech leads are informally in the role or only in the role for a fleeting project.
Thanks again Allen!
