Hey DEV tech leads!
This week, I'm going to continue with the format I've had for the past few months: three posts on the tech lead coaching mailing list and three podcasts.
But we're going to do something shiny and new this week: on Saturday, I'm going to run a free, live training session on How To Be a Tech Lead. Just register to get on the list. I'll try to record it if I can get all the technology together. Hope you'll be the first to attend our first of, hopefully, many sessions.
So this week's episodes are going to be focused on pulling everything together and making sure I've got the material ready for Saturday.
On Monday, we're going to focus on summarizing some of the main points about what tech leads do, how technical you should be, and why we need the tech lead role.
On Wednesday, we're going to explore the Four Core. We'll start with the first two: listening and defining technical visions. This is going to be a little new, because I'm going to go a little more technical than I have in the past.
On Friday, we'll round out a discussion of the other two of the Four Core, having a high engagement level and tracking and adjusting. Both of these go pretty close together.
Going to be a fun week and funner weekend!
