Your first time as a manager is not easy. You say some wrong things, make a few wrong decisions, and face lots of uncertainty. Being a great developer doesn't guarantee that you can help others be better developers.
This talk is about what I learned after going from a senior engineer in a team of three to managing a team of seven engineers. I will focus on the things you can do to prepare yourself if you are making the same transition, and the things a senior engineering leader can do to help someone in that transition.
