Four Things That Helped our Team to Stop Missing Deadlines

I got promoted to team lead pretty early on in my software development career. I was good at coding. Not great. But I was great at one thing: solving problems for other devs. You know how devs like to write code but not read code? I actually like to read code.

After getting promoted, I realized quickly that it wasn’t good enough to just solve problems for my team. I had to anticipate the problem. When we find problems early, the cost to fix it is exponentially lower. Shift left.
