Abstract

Software development is a team game.

As you progress through your career, you might end up in a leadership role, taking care of your own team, or even of multiple teams.

As a team lead, it’s up to you to establish a good working rhythm, set the right expectations, communicate up and down the chain of command and effectively help your team grow in both technical and non-technical terms.

As a team lead, you want to enable your team to reach its full potential.

The main goal of this talk is to provide pragmatic real-life examples, about how to achieve those things.
