The most prolific companies of our time are run by former developers. That's why I brought in former developer turned CEO and DZone core member, Stephen Magill, to chat about what it takes to make the jump from developer to business leader.
Stephen Magill is a former research developer turned CEO. Dan Lines was promoted from team lead to VP of Engineering almost overnight. On this episode of the Dev Interrupted podcast Dan and Stephen discuss:
- The pros and cons of having a technical vs communication background
- Why more companies are being lead by former developers
- What they both wished they knew before taking on leadership roles
- Great advice for developers who aspire to become business leaders
