Talk: Things I was unprepared for as a lead developer

This is not a story of how I survived a big technology company or startup. This is not the story of a young junior developer working his way through the ranks to become the greatest leader of all.

No. Instead, this is the story of how I became a lead developer and all the things I did wrong. It's about delegating, culture building, mentoring, planning, meetings (oh dreadful meetings), upper management and all the other stuff that a leader has to go through. It's also about all the fun I had and the things I learned. Next to that, I'm going to hand out some tips that can prepare you for the job a little better. And hopefully, it will inspire you to be the greatest leader of all.
