Hey! I'm Siddhant Goel, a developer/entrepreneur/geek based in Munich, Germany, and hard at work building "Developer to Manager".
Developer to Manager is a platform for software developers to talk about their transition to engineering management. We talk to managers at different stages of their careers, working in different industries at different scales, and try to get a sense of how it was like for them to switch from a developer role to a managerial one.
In each interview, we talk about the interviewee’s background, the story of their transition, which pitfalls to avoid, their advice on how to do this successfully, and a lot more. This helps us gather information in one place, so it can be useful to others.
The core idea behind all this is to have a set of open resources for developers who are either considering making this jump, or who are new to the job and could use some advice. So far we have managers from companies big and small, including Slack, LinkedIn, Trivago, Mozilla, and a few more, sharing their knowledge on the site, and I’m adding new interviews every month.
Excellent! Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll take it from there. 🙂
My aim for Developer to Manager is to build the website you open when you want to learn more about how to become a good engineering manager. Keeping that big picture in mind, I’m currently working on a few more features that I’d like to roll out in the next few weeks.
All content on this site is CC-licensed and free, and I intend to keep it that way. I'm just as annoyed by paywalls as you are.
Apart from that, I’m always looking to interview more and more engineering managers to increase the knowledge base. So if you’re interested, get in touch!
