Hi, my manager is leaving soon. I’ve only been here for short of 2 years and I’ve been promoted once already. It has come time to hire another dev. My director asked me to think about what I want for my career and how to hire the right person. I don’t want to become a manager if that means to stop coding and building stuff. Any advice or experiences you guys have had with this? I’m supposed to have a catchup with my director and he told me to think about it, but I only can think in terms of Problem-Solution. Not in abstract strategic career positioning or team management etc.4
Spent the whole day trying to refactor a program that consumes an API and didn’t work out. Now we have one less day to try to improve the product.
I think the fault was that we were aiming too high by looking at other libraries and we ended up over-complicating it.
