Podcast 376: Writing The Roadmap From Engineer To Manager

>>> Shared from Original Post Stack Overflow Blog

Former co-host Sara Chipps, now an engineering manager at LinkedIn, joins us to chat with Sarah Drasner, a director of engineering on the core developer web team at Google. We discuss the challenges of transitioning from an individual contributor software engineer to an engineering manager. Co-host Cassidy Williams knows exactly what kind of manager Drasner is; Cassidy used to report to her at Netlify. It’s a whole former co-worker reunion!

Show notes

Former co-host Sara Chipps  now manages engineering teams at LinkedIn, but her best content is still on Twitter.

Cassidy’s former boss, Sarah Drasner, recently wrote a book to help engineers level up to management: Engineering Management for the Rest of Us

Cassidy’s new favorite software tool is Astro, a single-site generator that looks to minimize the amount of client-side JavaScript in a site. 

The two books Ms. Chipps mention as the old standbys for new engineering managers are Peopleware and Smart and Gets Things Done
