Speakers and talks

The Lead Developer Austin is programmed with a combination of invited speakers and successful applicants to the call for proposals. The content of the conference is based on the themes of teams, tech and tools: how to develop your team, new and emerging tech, and processes to improve the way you work.

How to scale yourself as a first-time leader

When you're a first-time leader it's hard to transition from being a problem solver to leading a team to solve problems. It's often tempting to step in and solve problems for your team. However, the more often you step-in, you end up stripping your team's autonomy and neglecting your own work. Ultimately, this makes it hard to scale yourself.

Instead, you need to learn how to train your teammates, delegate problems to them, trust they'll be able to resolve them, and develop an intuition for knowing when it's appropriate to step in and help solve a problem.

In this talk, Poornima Vijayashanker will be sharing a framework for scaling yourself and building a self-sufficient team.
