From Novices to Practitioners
This book makes a substantial contribution to the soft side of software: namely one that begins a path towards empirical reflection
on what it means to be a senior software engineer.
In his book, “Talking with Tech Leads”, Patrick has
captured a wide variety of experiences, opinions, and reflections on what it means to bear the responsibilities of a Tech Lead, far beyond “merely” being competent at software delivery.

The skill set needed to effectively step up to a tech lead role can be markedly different from the ones you gain as an engineer. That realization is what prompted our former colleague Pat Kua to write his book Talking with Tech Leads. Here, he shares his experiences of how to successfully navigate the journey towards becoming a tech lead.
