today I hit him a push and I finish the post Meanwhile AVE, travel and showrooms of innovation, I don’t have much time.
I I am going to comment on my personal opinion, where today I’m not a programmer at 100% but am not a person who is dedicated to the Management in the form that we know it. The first thing that caught my attention in the comments of both posts is The complete DISGUST that shows more than one programmer to switch to a Management position, and of course, I’m 99.9999% sure that this is because they have had bad experiences with team leaders (since now no more managers) who can’t do their job.
In my case in particular, I’ve spent years programming. I am not of those who comment that 4 years they already coding in a Commodore 64 and from there throw lines, but I discovered more than large computer and I loved it from the first day. I spent years learning to program and believe that what most caught my attention is that in this business, we always have to be constantly learning.
When I was in my first job I was fortunate to participate in the creation of a product that started selling internationally and clear, what started as a team of 3 people, began to grow until they not reached me the fingers of one hand to count the team. At that point, it had been years of self-education on new technologies, programming, etc.; He had to become start to learn about elements to ensure that the work we did all as team was consistent, all understood where we wanted to get, etc.
At the same time I came to Spain and as coincided with the release of Visual Studio 2005, as I started to read books that went beyond programming techniques. I met AGILE, I discovered the business behind CMMI, but mainly I realized that unless concrete projects in my career would have to work hard as a team. Is for this reason that I started to try to improve the quality of the deliverables of my team, I tried to make everyone better that I (Germán taught me that the quality of a team is measured by the worst of its members), etc.
By the way, I fell a couple of awards MVPs, where in recent years have been basically Alm MVP category is to recognize and learn how to correctly use the tools of Visual Studio ALM to teamwork.
So well, I’m not a "manager of those" discussed in the posts from Juan Quijano and Alvaro Roca, but if I consider myself one of those trying to carry out a team until you get a satisfied customer and a productive team. Do seems incoherent, no?
By the way, 2 days ago I found a logical problem it took me almost a night build. As I realized that I’m "half Rusty" I am intended to make 30 minutes of Code Kata daily during the month of May.
Do to how many project managers / managers / managers know to do this sort of thing?
