The transition from Senior Developer to Lead Software Engineer is a challenging but rewarding journey that can feel like a career change rather than a promotion.

In this talk, I'll share advice and encouragement for future technical leaders, and discuss three tools for technical leadership I have learned while leading the team responsible for rearchitecting customer communications at New Zealand's largest online auction and classifieds website.
