Career & Leadership

Engineering + Management != "Engineering Management" This and other oops! and aha!'s I discovered as I transitioned from an Engineer to an Engineering Manager

Thursday, September 15, 2:45 PM - 3:30 PM

Great engineers don't necessarily make great engineering managers. If you are currently an engineer / tech lead and thinking about switching to an engineering manager role, you may have several questions and wondering if it’s the right move and if you have the right skills to succeed. Having made the transition a couple years ago, I can say I went through a steeper learning curve than I imagined. In this talk I will share some of the things I had to learn, and more importantly things I had to un-learn to be successful at engineering management.
