I agree with you on giving the team some autonomy. I think it’s important. I try to do that as much as I can. But I dont think doing weekly status reports will help. Havin junior devs on your team means that they need mentorship, especially when you need to deliver a high-quality codebase to your client.
I’m hoping that I can be more hands-off with time.
Sorry, I missed the point that they are juniors. I think the only thing what could help to introduce one senior developer to that team as local team lead.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
