About the Book
A paperback version is available on Amazon and other retailers.
No matter what responsibilities are in place. No matter what your job title is: software architect, senior engineer, principal engineer, project manager or CEO. They are all shades of the same abstraction: the technical leader.
We need leaders, and eventually we want to become a really good one. Often times it is confusing still. What distinguish a manager from a leader? What distinguish a leader from a technical one in today tech world?
This book is not yet another book on influencing people and on how to communicate properly. These are massively important skills, and plenty of amazing books have been already written on these topics.
It born as a vision – often times really personal – on who a technical leader is, how he/she acts and what it takes to be a good one.
Leadership is talent and attitude (for the blessed) and hard work in honing a plethora of skills. This holds really true for technical leaders. Hence, in this book, we are going to focus on skills, not on job title.
This is not a teaching book. What you will get out from this book, in summary, is a - very opinionated – discussion on what makes or breaks a good technical leader. Short chapters, one step at the time.
