Talk Focus


Roundtable discussion: From developer to manager

In software development, joining the ranks of engineering managers is one of the many possible career paths you can choose to follow. Most importantly, it's a role focused on people and how to help them succeed individually and in a team environment. While ultimately rewarding, this transition from a developer to a manager can be strangely challenging. David Müller will host a discussion about some of the biggest and most interesting challenges you'll face on the management journey and how to tackle them.

How do roundtable discussions work?
- Every roundtable discussion includes 5 active participants and a moderator to run the discussion.
- Each participant will prepare a question about the chosen topic to discuss. Please come prepared with a question and be prepared to discuss the questions other participants ask.
- The roundtable discussion lasts a total of 40 minutes, including:
             o 5 MINUTES: A quick introduction from each participant about who you are and what you do.
             o 35 MINUTES: Interactive discussions about each question (7 minutes per question).
- Other conference attendees are welcome to quietly watch the roundtable discussion. There will always be about 15 chairs set up for an audience. We’ll also be live streaming the discussion for attendees who can’t attend in person

Don't worry if you run out of time! Feel free to continue talking with other participants after the official roundtable discussion ends.

Jakub joined Mews when our apartments were considered 'The Office'. While his work life steered him towards the role of technical manager, he still considers code just a structured offshoot of poetry. When he's not coding, he's running. And when he's not coding or running, he's thinking about at least one of the two.
