The most prolific companies of our time are run by former developers. That’s why I brought in former developer turned CEO, Stephen Magill, to chat about what it takes to make the jump from developer to business leader.
Stephen Magill is a former research developer turned CEO . Dan Lines was promoted from team lead to VP of Engineering almost over night. On this episode of the Dev Interrupted podcast Dan and Stephen discuss:
– The pros and cons of having a technical vs communication background
– Why more companies are being lead by former developers
– What they both wished they knew before taking on leadership roles
– Great advice for developers who aspire to become business leaders
