“The Good Manager” by WEBdeLDN at AND
Location: AND Digital 18 Henrietta Street, London WC2E 8QH
Subject of this meet up will be the management, and in particular the figure of the "good manager". Some people think that it doesn't exist, other that is just a mythical figure like the unicorn, but it's not. If our industry has problems finding good managers, or developers struggle to create healthy relations with them, probably the hitch is in the process.
And so, how do you find good managers? How do you recruit and hire them? How do you form and train them? How can you become a good manager yourself? During the evening we'll try to answer some of these questions with the help of the speakers and the discussion with all the participants.

Experts, senior developers, thought leaders – software development is obsessed with the idea of expertise. As individuals we aim to present ourselves as experts while companies fight to employ visible experts and present their brand as most knowledgeable. This talk will examine the costs of our expert obsession, looking at how individual performance, experimentation and diversity within the industry are impacted. We’ll look at practical ways to succeed in the expertise race alongside subtle, useful ways to subvert the dynamic
