CodeMash 2023 - So You're a New Lead Developer... Now What?

Hi CodeMash attendees! If you’re here you probably came to my talk on Friday about being a new lead developer. We talked at length about building trust through 1:1s and how to give feedback effectively. I really hope it will prove helpful

I had fun speaking with everyone after the session and trying my best to answer your great questions.

The slides are here and I’m also curating some more resources on the talk page.

If you have additional questions, I’d be happy to chat with you further. You can find me on Twitter at @mattburkedev1, LinkedIn and I’m trying out Mastodon on my own instance at

Thanks again to all the hard working CodeMash organizers and sponsors for making it such a great event! And shoutout to my team at Viagio Technologies for teaching me so much and making it possible for me to attend.
