About the Book
You worked hard. Solving problems and coding smart solutions is your thing. And then there is a day where the bomb is dropped. "Would you like to be promoted to the team's lead developer?"
This was my reality a few years ago. I did not know much about being a lead developer. I worked with many great ones over the years. But now I had to become one.
I had to learn new skills, consider factors outside of my comfort zone. But… I had to learn.
In this book I compiled my notes and day to day practices. And now you can benefit from this.
Learn best practices for being a great lead software developer. Every software developer at some point will have the opportunity to become a lead software developer. Definitions of what exactly a lead software developer is are different, but in this book I will provide you with best practices and tools to be the best lead developer you can be. For yourself, your peers and the business leaders you are working with.
On a number of topical areas I will go into details about the lessons I learned when growing into my role as a lead software developer. Everybody's environment is different, but I think there is something useful in this book for everyone.
