Level Up

November 17 · Issue #14 · View online
Level Up delivers a curated newsletter for leaders in tech. A project by Ideal for busy people such as Tech Leads, Engineering Managers, VPs of Engineering, CTOs and more.

Heading towards the end of the year is peak conference time meaning lots of travel. This week I was fortunate enough to take part in BuildStuff LT, a very wonderful tech conference in Vilnius. Next week I’ll be running a Tech Lead training course at where I’m currently working with one of our biggest groups yet before heading a tech conference in Sweden. It’s great to be able to personally invest in people’s growth. I’ve been able to see the sky-rocket growth of tech lead course participants over time. If you’re interested in a public version, I’ll be running a 1 day edition as a last minute addition to the conference program of the inaugural LeadDev Berlin.
I hope you enjoy this week’s content. If you find it useful, please forward to someone else and send me feedback.

A great reminder of Pfeffer’s Law.

Pfeffer's Law: "Instead of being interested in what is new, we ought to be interested in what is true." @JeffreyPfeffer has long been skeptical of scholars and "gurus" who ballyhoo "breakthroughs" as too many are actually old ideas, bad ideas, or both.
