Talking with Tech Leads

Talking with Tech Leads by Patrick Kua brings you tales from the coalface, as a group of tech leads share their experiences.

Pat started this book project because he saw how even the best developers could struggle to becoming a tech lead. Often, the experiences gained as a developer don't prepare them for the responsibilities of being a tech lead.

While there's no shortage of programming books, there are few that help developers prepare for the step up to becoming tech leads, or for those in already in the role to develop themselves further. This book addresses that need. It's based on talking to those who've made that step up and shares their learnings.

If you see the tech lead role as part of your career journey, you won't want to miss this.
