Promoted from Dev to Team Lead: 8 Things They Didn’t Tell Me

This was me when DZone, who’s partnering with Techwell on the event, asked me to do the Wednesday keynote. 

I am honored and excited (and a little nervous) to share a story about a moment in time that was probably the hardest and also the most rewarding phase of my career: getting promoted from dev to team lead. 

Imagine me, a kid in my 20s, all of a sudden thrust into leading a team of experienced women and men. I wasn’t remotely prepared. 

21 year old me during my first job as a programmer. I’m really 21 there. Not 14. I swear. 

That’s what my keynote is all about: how to adapt your mindset and skill set from being a great developer to being a great team lead. Spoiler alert: there is not a lot of overlap between what makes great devs and what makes great dev leaders. 

I built the session to have something valuable for everyone:

Dev Team Leads will get management cheat codes that took me years to learn. 

Developers will see what it takes to be a team lead so you can decide if it’s for you. 

CTOs and VPs of Engineering will get ideas for setting up new managers for success. 

The session is called Promoted from Dev to Team Lead; 8 things they didn’t tell me.

If you read my blog by the same name (which got over 100,000 views on DZone and the LinearB website – HOLY MOLY!), don’t worry, this session has tons of new tips and stories. 

Here’s a 55 second video with some excerpts:

Plus our dev team lead at LinearB, Ariel Illouz, is giving a really useful talk based on his super popular DZone blog

Ariel is actually 10 years older than me if you can believe it. 

I hope to see you all there!
